Hale Arts Opening Tonight for New Group Show:

Hale Arts Space is opening the invitation to a reception of their latest group show featuring works by Silvia Wagensberg and Adam Zaff. The event will be held this evening, July 8, from 5 – 8 p. m.

Adam Zaff

Zaff first fell in love with the medium of photography 12 years ago, during a film photography course in high school. That course proved to be vital in his understanding of the medium, and extremely beneficial when he soon transitioned to digital. While at Fordham University in New York, Adam continued his studies and has not put down the camera since. Whether shooting in his native city of Los Angeles, or traveling the world, he almost always has a camera at his side. His unique perspective, coupled with his passion for the medium have helped Adam create striking images, which transport the viewer, no matter their background.

Silvia Wagensberg

“My practice is focused on public and private spheres in my immediate environment as I perceive them concretely, or through figures, and conceptually, or through abstract forms. A painter by training and trade, I apply more or less traditional media to a variety of surfaces as a particular situation calls for, whether it is acrylic on vinyl, mixed media on textile, or a variety of media as applied to a given surface. In these two series, I showcase landscapes that belong to my immediate surroundings, as well as abstract depictions that are part of my psychology, such as conglomerates of symbols including grapho-mania inspired excerpts. My practice is intrinsically tied to language, history and the environment at large. In this vein, the titles of every one of the works in these two series are tied to concepts which I have directly and methodically plucked from a Smithsonian’s catalogue of timelines of the ancient world. As a result, the title of every one of these paintings is a more or less familiar event in the chronology of the ancient world, ranging from 1,000,000 years ago to 200 BCE. This way, I have hoped to establish a link between a very personal geography/psychology and a universally accepted chronology of events. With this marriage between intimate images and familiar events, something that becomes sometimes obvious and sometimes nonsensical, I hope to bring to light a history of human consciousness that we have become perhaps too comfortable relegating to the realm of the known.”

Hale Arts Space is located on 2443 Main Street in Santa Monica, and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 12 – 6  p.m. The opening reception is July 8 from 5 – 8 p.m., and the exhibit will remain through July 20. For more information, visit halearts.com, or email info@halearts.com.
