Save the Date & Preview: Opening Receptions for Nicholas Bonamy, Patrick Haemmerlein, Morley and Toshee at Gabba Gallery – Saturday September 9th

Posted by

Saturday September 9th, is the opening reception for Gabba Gallery‘s simultaneous solo exhibitions by four Los Angeles artists: Nicholas Bonamy, Patrick Haemmerlein, Morley, and Toshee. The exhibitions are curated by Jason Ostro.

Nicholas Bonamy’s stunning cityscapes in Preapocolyptic Daydreams portray Los Angeles as a serene wonderland where vast polka dotted skies hover above candy colored buildings. The city’s hills, bridges, warehouses, train yards and more are enchantingly rendered on delicious mixed-media panels.

The City of Angels is also Patrick Haemmerlein’s muse in his latest exhibition, Living Image. His evocative mixed-media pieces capture LA’s beaches, mountains, and urban vistas using the artist’s trademark blend of photography, painting, book pages, and sheet music.

Morley is a Los Angeles-based street artist that specializes in bold, typographic posters which he wheatpastes within the urban landscape. The text-based pieces in his latest gallery show, A Beginner’s Guide to Mending, also blend humor, hope and the artist’s unique perspective on life, while allowing the viewer’s personal experiences to inform each message’s connotation.

In his second solo exhibition at Gabba Gallery, mixed-media artist Toshee delivers vibrant streetscapes of Los Angeles and its inhabitants. The show explores cultural intersections that occur throughout LA, particularly in neighborhoods with strong immigrant traditions. The show’s title, LAyered, refers to this urban layering as well as the artist’s signature technique.

Hope to see you there!
