TAG Gallery Opens Newest Exhibition Today Featuring Trio Of Artists:

TAG Gallery at Bergamot Station will open its newest exhibition today featuring artists Don Adler, Brigitte Schobert, and Betty Sheinbaum.

An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, March 1 from 5 pm to 8 pm. An artist walk is  scheduled for Saturday, March 15 at 3 pm.

In his latest exhibition, sculptor Don Adler celebrates the romance between artist and media. Transitioning from previous smaller scale works to larger, organic compositions, Adler continues to explore rich, multidimensional colors in his sculptures.

Contrasting use of light and dark, negative space and positive volume, Adler expressively illustrates the emotion and physicality of his sculptural process.

“Each creation is meant to draw the viewer into the work,” Adler said. “Then, contrary to many prohibitions, (I want to) encourage the observer to make both visual and tactile contact to experience the sensuality and power generated.”

Adler’s abstract forms are enhanced by a range of color – from subtle pink and veined amber marble to black Belgian marble. Fusing natural stone with a dexterous carving technique, Adler’s sensitive attention to detail highlights the individual character of each stone piece.

Meanwhile, artist Brigitte Schobert’s series “Reflections” features a new body of vibrant works on paper and canvas inspired by her travels abroad.

Drawing from memories of intricately decorated homes, colorful clothing, flowers and food from the Mediterranean, India, Indonesia and Mexico, Schobert intuitively weaves her experiences into her abstract imagery.

Her bold color palette engages the senses, mimicking the rich impression that these cultures had on her own.

Schobert meticulously layers oil paints using an etching press and a transfer process from plexiglass plates to create multidimensional works on paper.

Her acrylic work on canvas exhibits a close attention to texture as she applies fabrics, tissue paper, and even sand to the surface before adding multiple translucent layers of paint to the canvas to create a sense of depth.

Gestural strokes and shapes emerge from colorful environments of rich red, orange and pink in works like Untitled 176, as each work conveys individually emotive sensations.

The third exhibiting artist is Betty Sheinbaum. Her current series, “Relax and Play” features acrylic portrait studies of people at leisure. Sheinbaum continues to explore light and form through her subjects – people and pets in public spaces, caught in unassuming, candid moments.

Using flat, geometric shapes and large fields of bold color, the artist creates shallow space, forcing her figures into the foreground.

The immediacy of Sheinbaum’s technique captures fleeting moments in time as her swift, visible brushstrokes highlight leafy park scenes and outdoor escapes.

Sheinbaum’s playfully colorful scenes portray a keen eye for the attitude and personality of her Los Angeles subjects, while sharing a relatable viewpoint with her audience – that of the observer.

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