Opening Sat: "Time Writers from the Mirror Horizon" at David Patton LA

Opening + Performance + Out of traction and back in action + Others

“Time Writers from the Mirror Horizon”
Opening and Performance – this Saturday, July 7th, 7-10pm

“Friends,

Join us this Saturday, July 7th (07/07/07!) as we host a reception for “Time Writers from the Mirror Horizon” a show curated by LA-based artist Gabie Strong. The exhibition will feature the work of Andy Alexander, Kent Familton, Wendy Heldmann, Kathleen Johnson, Alice Konitz, Tracy Nakayama, Gina Osterloh, Sean Sullivan, Kristine Thompson and Jeremy Yoder who will be using the gallery located at 5006 ½ York Blvd. as a starship for explorations of time and space. Some might consider the word “landscape” as a proper painterly term to describe some of the work presented in this show, as an analogy for the curious rub between past, present, and future; others will just say, “far out!” We’ll also have an opening sound performance by Sharon Cheslow and Steven Kim.

The show will run from July 7th until August 4th. We have another set of performances planned for the closing featuring LA based New Zealander Helga Fassonaki as well as the musician Tom Watson.

After a short break where we attended to the delivery of a future gallery intern (future like in say, 16 years) David Patton Los Angeles will resume regular business hours (after the opening ‘natch) on Thursday the 12th of July. Those hours are Th-Sat. 12-6pm.”
