TAG Gallery Presents New Exhibition Of Three Artists Through November 23:

A new exhibition is now on display at TAG Gallery through Nov. 23 featuring artists Carol Kleinman, Linda Sue Price, and Kamil Vojnar.

An opening reception is set for Saturday, Nov. 2 from 5-8 pm. An artist talk will be held next Saturday, Nov. 9 from 3-4 pm.

Kleinman’s latest show, “Paris Windows,” continues her unique work with reflections, merging reality with fantasy.

In her new series of photographs on canvas, the Pacific Palisades resident and inveterate traveler captures a mysterious, multi-layered world as it actually existed on windows all over Paris, from the small streets of the Latin Quarter to the 19th century covered passages of the Right Bank.

Kleinman’s surprising images are not composites, but rather single exposures capturing a complex interplay of light and form.

“I want to challenge the viewer to look beyond everyday life. Each of my images existed in the world at a unique moment in time,” Kleinman said. “Nothing is set up or manufactured. What you see … is what I saw.”

Meanwhile Price’s neon art is rooted in nostalgia in her show “Spiraling.”

Referring to childhood memories of west coast road trips and visions of the animated motel signs and drive-in theaters from Long Beach to Las Vegas, Price’s work pays playful homage to a bygone era. Animation is prevalent in Price’s multilayered work, as twisted acrylic rods, glass and LED lights create vibrant landscapes of moving light.

“I play with the glass, exploring and trying different combinations until I settle on a form I want to explore,” Price said. “I mix color, reflection, texture and animation to create a visual experience.”

Price specifically designed her latest series to create a gentle, meditative sense of movement, contrasting the traditional use of animated signs as dazzling distractors.

Price’s dynamic spiraled designs offer a colorful sense of whimsy while embracing the capabilities of neon as an artistic medium.

Finally, Vojnar’s show “Life is a Journey” is simply that.

Like pages from a scrapbook, his images document this journey. But rather than cover wide geographical distances, Vojnar travels vertically through the timeless, wistful emotions of the soul and heart.

Soft figures float through ethereal landscapes of muted color as birds, balloons and airborne ships become forms of surreal locomotion in Vojnar’s current series.

The artist’s scenes are comprised of digitally layered photographs on various

papers which stand both alone or are adhered to canvas.

Drips of wax and oil paint add touchable texture and simultaneously emphasize nuances of color and shadow.

“I like to make a satisfying object,” Vojnar said. “A simple photograph is cold to me.”

Vojnar’s collaged images provide a sense of spiritual contemplation, as motifs of wings and figures in flight act as modern relics that are both haunting and familiar.

Established in 1993 as a not-for-profit corporation, TAG Gallery is a member-owned community of approximately 40 artists.

Through the physical gallery in Santa Monica’s Bergamot Station as well as lectures from exhibiting and visiting artists, TAG Gallery has become a valuable resource for launching the careers of both emerging and mid-career artists based in the greater Los Angeles area.

It is located at 2525 Michigan Avenue, Space D3, Santa Monica. It is open 11 am to 5 pm Tuesdays through Saturdays and 12 pm to 4 pm on Sundays.
