The only place in LA to see Unfinished Paintings and have a critical dialogue about them

Pride of place to the master. So do you or don't you think this painting (James Hayward, unfinished painting Oil on canvas on mahogany panel, unsigned and undated 44" x 33") looks... finished? Do you suppose Hayward's paintings spring from his thigh like in a Greek myth? Eek. I want to see that!

Good Lord my friends, I am losing track of important exhibitions, and so missing out on alerting you to GOOD STUFF.

Two are the many openings at LACE tonight:

Unfinished Paintings, curated by Kristin Calabrese and Joshua Aster. To my mind LACE is the only place that would be able to host this exhibition, which asks artists to share with the public works in progress. How tantalizing, and what a generous idea for an exhibition. LACE, with its history of supportive engagement with artists is just the place for a painter to feel the trust – and to inspire the audience to engage with respect. Awesome work Kristin and Joshua.

Lisa Adams, Joshua Aster, Nina Bovasso, Delia Brown, Kristin Calabrese, Sarah Cromarty, Sydney Croskery, Noah Davis, Gerald Davis, Mark Dutcher, Mari Eastman, Brad Eberhard, Bart Exposito, Michelle Grabner, Alex Grey, James Hayward, Salomon Huerta, Xylor Jane, Valerie Jaudon, Chris Johanson, Annie Lapin, Jose Lerma, Caitlin Lonegan, Dan McCleary, Shiri Mordechay, Loren Munk, Laurie Nye, Eamon Ore-Giron, Susie Rosmarin, Frank Ryan, David Ryan, Katia Santibañez, Kenny Scharf, Cary Smith, Linda Stark, Don Suggs, Mitchell Wright, and Brenna Youngblood.
