The Way of the Flesh II - Mt. San Antonio College

This exhibition in the Mt. Sac College Art Gallery is open through Oct. 16, and is free of charge, with an accompanying exhibition catalogue written by John Seed. Mt. Sac is located at 1100 North Grand Avenue, in Walnut, CA.

As one might construe from the title, The Way of Flesh II explores figurative art by contemporary artists, who are for the most part, situated in California. There will be an Artists' Panel on 9/28 in the Art Gallery, Building 1B.

Participating artists with CSULB ties are Sharon Allicotti, Thomas Butler, Domenic Cretara, and Peter Zokosky. Other artists who also create interesting & often provocative works are Dirk Hagner (also a printmaker), John Nava (who created the designs for the tapestries in Our Lady of the Angels, downtown LA), Odd Nerdrum, and Jerome Witkin.

Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Tuesday nights, 5 to 7:30 p.m. For more information, do call the Art Gallery at (909) 274-4328.

I don't know for a fact that the two drawings below are included in this exhibition, but one gets an idea of the extremely high caliber of work by these artists.

Sharon Allicotti, Study for Cradled, charcoal drawing, 22 x 30"

Domenic Cretara, Going Home, 2005, graphite & pastel, 59 x 39"
