Critically celebrated solo exhibition: "Claire Falkenstein: An Expansive Universe" has now been extended through to October 27, 2012. The exhibition is a significant contribution by the gallery to commemorate the Gettys city-wide initiative, Pacific Standard Time.
Claire Falkensteins (1908-1997) work, with its innovative use of materials such as glass, metal, ceramic and resin, reveals an artist with an indomitable spirit; an innovator who so pushed traditional boundaries, that she stands uniquely apart from other artists in the mainstream; many who would be counted among her admirers.
The exhibition also launches the first major publication detailing her entire career Claire Falkenstein with essays by art historians Susan M. Anderson and Maren Henderson, art writer and critic Michael Duncan, and an introduction by Philip Linhares, President of the Falkenstein Foundation and former Chief Curator of Art at the Oakland Museum of California.
Claire Falkenstein: An Expansive Universe and Ruth Weisberg: Now & Then opened February 18 and now extends through June at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts, located at 357 N. La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, California, 90036. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For further information, phone (323) 938-5222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
