|Käthe Kollwitz: Prints, Process, Politicsat The Getty Center1200 Getty Center Drive,Los Angeles, CA 90049Through March 29, 2020|
|Käthe Kollwitz, one of the foremost graphic artists of the 20th century, is celebrated for her affecting portrayals of the hardships of war, poverty, and injustice and for her technical virtuosity. A selection of works on paper from the Dr. Richard A. Simms Collection at the Getty Research Institute—including rare preparatory drawings, working proofs, and trial prints—sheds light on Kollwitz’s creative process and reveals the depth of her social and political engagement.|
GRAPHIC SUBVERSION: MARK STEVEN GREENFIELD & MARK DEAN VECAat CSUN Art Galleries18111 Nordhoff st, Northridge CA 91330Through March 14th 2020
A native Angeleno, Mark Steven Greenfield studied with Charles White at Otis Art Institute, and served as the director of Watts Towers Art Center and the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. He has exhibited widely received numerous grants and honors, the most recent coming from the Craft Contemporary in October 2019.
Residing in Altadena, California, Mark Dean Veca earned his BFA at Otis Art Institute, and he has won several awards and honors, including the C.O.L.A. Individual Artist Fellowship and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. Veca is currently working on the design for LA Metro’s Purple Line.
Both Greenfield and Veca use art to subvert media clichés to create “sneak attacks” on contemporary culture. Their work urges us not to accept media images as neutral, but to explore the nature of their history and impact, and what they communicate both overtly and covertly. Greenfield often addresses racial stereotypes, and Veca examines marketing mascots, cartoon characters and aristocratic emblems; their work encourages viewers to think critically about the tropes that dominate our mass media world.

|Shadow Box Framing|

When each project is complete, a master craftsman checks it over to ensure that it meets our exacting standards of quality before we release it to the customer.
