LA Painting: Formalism to Street Art

When: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Oct. 7

The Los Angeles art scene doesn't get as much attention as New York's does (they're just not cool enough), but the West Coast scene is thriving. LA Painting: Formalism to Street Art, the new exhibition at Bruno David Gallery (7513 Forsyth Boulevard; www.brunodavidgallery.com), features contemporary work by 24 artists working in a broad range of styles. Some artists capture the unique LA sunlight, some work in Abstract Expressionism, others are more concerned with the narrative use of the figure or the uniquely Southern Californian school of Abstraction, Hard-Edge Geometry. LA Painting: Formalism to Street Art opens with a free reception 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, September 2, and remains up through October 7. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
