Gabba Gallery is proud to present simultaneous solo exhibitions by four outstanding Los Angeles artists: Nicholas Bonamy, Patrick Haemmerlein, Morley, and Toshee. Curated by Jason Ostro.
Nicholas Bonamy’s stunning cityscapes in Preapocolyptic Daydreams portray Los Angeles as a serene wonderland where vast polka dotted skies hover above candy colored buildings. The city’s hills, bridges, warehouses, train yards and more are enchantingly rendered on delicious mixed-media panels.
The City of Angels is also Patrick Haemmerlein’s muse in his latest exhibition, Living Image. His evocative mixed-media pieces capture LA’s beaches, mountains, and urban vistas using the artist’s trademark blend of photography, painting, book pages, and sheet music.
Morley is a Los Angeles-based street artist that specializes in bold, typographic posters which he wheatpastes within the urban landscape. The text-based pieces in his latest gallery show, A Beginner’s Guide to Mending, also blend humor, hope and the artist’s unique perspective on life, while allowing the viewer’s personal experiences to inform each message's connotation.
In his second solo exhibition at Gabba Gallery, mixed-media artist Toshee delivers vibrant streetscapes of Los Angeles and its inhabitants. The show explores cultural intersections that occur throughout LA, particularly in neighborhoods with strong immigrant traditions. The show’s title, LAyered, refers to this urban layering as well as the artist’s signature technique.
All four shows open September 9 and will be on view through September 30. The opening night reception takes place Saturday, September 9 from 7-11pm. The event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required. DJ Jonathan Williams spinning. Sponsored by Original New York Seltzer and Fort Point Beer. Free parking at 3000 Beverly Blvd (enter off Reno). Gabba Gallery is located at 3126 Beverly Blvd.
