October 3, noon-8pm, free, L.A Marler Studio and Gallery, 3000-B Airport Ave., 310.449.4477.
In synchronicity with the AltCar Expo, Louise Ann Marler’s exhibit features photographs of abandoned “junkyard” cars that tell the story of our automotive past, even as new forms of auto transportation are being built. Her works are available in frames made from reclaimed moldings and a portion of the proceeds from work sold will be donated to The Coalition for Clean Air.
