Los Angeles Art Show, through tomorrow

The Los Angeles Art Show is at the LA Convention Center through tomorrow, January 22, 2012.

                                        Susan Teller Gallery, Booth A-107, south and west walls.

      We are featuring Judith Shahn’s Back Yards, Greenwich Village, 1948, and a group of Anne Ryan paintings and works on paper. In an inaugural view, Theodore Haupt’s Three Graces, 1941, pairs with Acrobats, 1937.  Also hanging are Bernard Rosenquit’s Playroom, 1946, and drawings and prints by  Peggy Bacon and Her Circle -- Isabel Bishop, Wanda Gag, Reginald Marsh, and Marguerite Zorach.

     The fair seems to have gotten much larger.  There’s an extensive show of Chinese Buddhist paintings and an installation of a Qing Dynasty Reading Room. Attendance has been great and the weather wonderful. Wednesday and Thursday were beautiful -- 65 degrees with a cloud-less sky. Ensconced at the picturesque Figueroa Hotel, we can see as far west as the Hollywood sign. Today, however, Southern California is getting some much needed rain.
