16th annual Modern Art :: Highlights
The 16th annual Los Angeles Art Show took place in the city's Convention Center this past Thursday, January 19th through Sunday, January 23rd.
The show, spread out on the floor of the center's main hall, featured over 100 galleries from around the globe with artworks of the Modern, Old Masters, Impressionist and Contemporary genres. Paintings, sculpture, mixed media, photography, etchings, lithography, LED art, video art and installations were among the mediums.
While there were some wonderful contemporary art galleries represented, there were also some equally bad ones. It was sad to see that many prominent contemporary art galleries were not there such as the Gagosian and Pace galleries. However, a few of people's favorites like the George Billis Galleries , Salt Fine Art, Rebecca Hossack Gallery and the Sue Greenwood Fine Art Gallery were present.
For lovers of modern and contemporary art, Art Basel Miami is a better bet, but this show, with its varied selection may appeal to a wider audience. 20th century favorites like Picasso, Warhol, Lichtenstein, Miro, Robert Indiana, Sam Francis and Wayne Thiebaud, amongst others, were represented at the show. There were a few Renoirs, a Norman Rockwell, a Hopper and some Chagalls. Western, Dutch, American Indian, Aboriginal and German Expressionism were merely a few of the varied styles. And classic photos by Henri Cartier- Bresson, Ansel Adams, Elliott Erwitt and other prominent photographers' works were available.
