Three shows debut at the Armory Center for the Arts this weekend, and to celebrate the occasion the art school and museum/gallery is hosting an opening on Saturday evening.
The first show, Rauschenberg at Gemini, focuses on the many prints made by Robert Rauschenberg at Gemini G.E.L. in Los Angeles. Over his 35 works of working with Gemini, he pushed the boundaries of printmaking and helped Gemini become one of the country’s leading print workshops.
The second, located in the Mezzanine Gallery, is a posthumous retrospective of the work of L.A. photographer Jeff Reese. The third installation is a site-specific mural in the main stairwell called Hahamongna, by Quinton Bemiller. Commissioned in part by the Pasadena Arts and Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena, this paint-and-fabric installation is an interpretation of the natural environment of the upper Arroyo Seco.
And while you’re there, don’t miss The Convergence Project in the Community Room Gallery, a terrific show of work by girls from Mayfield Senior School.
Saturday, January 16, 7 – 9 p.m.
