TAG Gallery Reception Saturday Evening For Three New Exhibits:

TAG Gallery opened a new exhibition Tuesday featuring artists Peter Kempson, Patricia Doede Klowden, and Gary Polonsky.

An opening reception will be held this Saturday, June 22 from 5-8 pm.

The exhibit runs through July 13. Known for his photo-realistic acrylic landscapes, Kempson has been exploring a wide-range of subjects and new media for a little over a year.

His new works include “20th Century Modern” (pictured above).

It a large piece celebrating modernist architects from Frank Lloyd Wright to Frank Gehry.

Klowden’s current series, Sliced, continues her examination of the figure in ceramic and bronze, with representational forms as well as abstractions that invoke the figure without full representation, and ceramic vessels that approach the physical body from a more intuitive perspective.

Polonsky’s latest exhibition further explores large-scale food studies, focusing his most recent work on classic American confections.

Working from real food while using non-traditional canvases of balsawood, styrofoam, and wire mesh, Polonsky’s three-dimensional works break the surface and effectively blur the line between painting and sculpture.

TAG Gallery is located at 2525 Michigan Ave. D3 (Bergamot Station), Santa Monica.
