    Shefali Mistry leads Michelada Think Tank event on artists of color

  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

Alumnus Alec Egan in Close to Home

The Freight + Volume gallery on the Lower East Side is currently presenting an intriguing collection of work by Alec Egan titled Close to Home. For this show, Egan presents several oil paintings characterized by rich brushstrokes with subjects ranging from portraits of animals, to still-lifes of objects such as clothing, food, or furniture. Most of Egan’s animal paintings are close-ups of furry four-legged mammals and are full of emotion. One of these paintings titled Bison depicts the hearty creature resting on its stomach on a soft surface, resting its head on its arm.
