PSST: Art in San Pedro 2000-2012
June 9 – August 4, 2012
TransVagrant and Warschaw Gallery are pleased to present PSST: Art in San Pedro 2000-2012, selected works by artists living and working at the southern end of LA’s 110 Freeway. Featuring works by Craig Antrim, Philippa Blair, Ray Carofano, William Crutchfield, Michael Davis, Linda Day, Eric Johnson, Austin Lowrey, Lida Lowrey, Ron Linden, Jay McCafferty, Danial Nord, Harold Plople, Peggy Reavey, Fran Siegel, Maggie Tenneson, Marie Thibeault, and Ted Twine.
Isolated from Los Angeles’ various art centers by virtue of geography, San Pedro enjoys an underground reputation as an artists’ community unique for its eclecticism. Many artists showcased here are conducting successful national and international careers, yet remain virtually unknown in their own community. This exhibition reveals the variety of viewpoints and subject matter as well as the technical and conceptual concerns that define the visual arts in San Pedro.
An exhibition catalog is available with contributions by Peter Frank and Peter Plagens.
