Special Closing Event for Tom Krumpak “Built & Placed” Exhibition At Emeritus College Sept. 9:

The Santa Monica College Emeritus College Art Gallery is hosting a special closing event for the Tom Krumpak: “Built & Placed” Exhibition from 5 pm to 6:30 pm Wednesday, Sept. 9.

The event opens with a 5 p.m. exhibition walkthrough and Q&A with the artist, followed by text and poetry readings by authors Glenn Bach, Sharry Phelan Wright, Miles Krumpak, Nelly Reifler, The 597K Group, and Ray Gavilan Robinson.

The Emeritus College Art Gallery is located on the first floor of Emeritus College, 1227 Second St., in downtown Santa Monica. Parking is available next door in Santa Monica Public Parking Structure No. 2. Gallery hours are 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. The exhibit and reception are free.

Krumpak – a professor of Drawing and Painting at California State University, Long Beach – will talk about his paintings, which feature clustered colored shapes and silhouettes that overlap endlessly to produce potent colorfield abstractions, incredibly tight detailed rendering, and obsessive gathering of visual information in mass abundance. He will also discuss his recent sculptural explorations.

Krumpak’s works have been shown in more than 100 exhibitions in the United States, Europe, and Korea. Krumpak also curates exhibitions of works by emerging and established artists, and leads tours to artists’ studios, through historical neighborhoods, and to architectural sites and music venues in Los Angeles and New York City.

Emeritus College was founded by SMC in 1975 to serve the lifelong learning interests of older adults. Today, the widely praised program offers more than 120 free classes and special programs, and serves over 3,000 students each year.
