Katherine Cone Gallery is pleased to present SELFISH, a group exhibition curated by renowned painter Sean Cheetham. The exhibition includes self-portrait paintings by artists Sean Cheetham, Julio Reyes, Candice Bohannon Reyes, Sergio Sanchez, Wayne Johnson, Kevin Llewellyn, Hollis Dunlap, Sonya Palencia, Jeff Nentrup, Jonathan Hart, EL MAC, Natalia Fabia, Korin Faught, Ryan Cheetham, Kate Savage, Eric Pedersen, Marc Trujillo, Johnpaul Altamirano, Stephen Schirle, and Richard Morris.
The self-portrait has been a popular form of expression ever since man first saw his own reflection. Tragic and triumphant, self-portraits can reveal a telling story. From rags to riches, through sickness and health, from youth to old age, we can witness the changing face of an artist.
Intrinsically linked to identity, the self-portrait ultimately stands to reveal something deeper about the creator- an exploration of self and an examination of one’s own conscious thoughts and feelings. At times, an artist feels they must repeatedly create a self-portrait in an effort to further research their inner-self and perhaps search for answers within the painted image. Famous painters from Rembrandt to van Gogh have relied on self-portraiture as a method to intensely study the self through art.
SELFISH showcases the exploration of self-perception through the medium of painting by twenty-one master painters. Please join us for a reception for the artists Saturday, May 4th, from 6-9 p.m. The SELFISH exhibition opens May 4th and will run until June 22nd, 2013.
For more information on the show please visit www.katherineconegallery.com. Katherine Cone Gallery is located at 2673 South La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90034. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11-6pm. For inquiries please contact email@example.com.

Freeway Studies is a multi-year, contemporary art-focused curatorial project organized by Meg Linton, Director of Galleries and Exhibitions, with the assistance of Jeseca Dawson, 2012-2014 Curatorial Fellow.
This Side of the 405 features work by 33 contemporary artists whose studios are west of the 405, north of the 105 and south of the 10 freeways in Los Angeles. The impetus for this curatorial endeavor was and continues to be an effort to survey, one studio at a time, the neighborhoods and networks of artists working in Los Angeles. Over a six month period Linton and Dawson visited 85 studios and met with more than 100 artists in the designated area, documenting each visit on a blog. They will update the blog as they visit more artists to plan the subsequent Freeway Studies exhibitions focusing on other neighborhoods.

On March 19th we took a trip to West Hollywood to attend the opening reception for the Poli Marichal and Cathy Weiss curated exhibit, “Heart of East L.A.” Selected prints from the Self-Help Graphics Art collection at the Pacific Design Center. The exhibit consisted of 37 fine art prints and originals from the Self Help Graphics art collection. And for those who attended the opening reception like Anita and myself, you were gifted with a live chalk drawing demonstration by my friend, Artist Jose Lozano.

We Arrived at the L.A. Print Space gallery around 6:00 pm, and I could see Mr. Lozano was hard at work in front of the gallery on his first panel of his two panel chalk masterpiece. After an always entertaining conversation with Mr. Lozano and being his ladder assistant, I entered L.A. Print Space gallery and was hit with a blast of color from the sensational collection of artwork.
Front Room of the exhibit
The first two prints that caught my eye were Esther Hernandez’s La Ofrenda and Diane Gamboa’s Lost and Found. The La Ofrenda print by Mrs. Hernandez is a iconic image of hers and looks spectacular in person. I always enjoy Mrs. Gamboa’s artwork and I would revel if I had one of her pieces in my collection. The next two prints I that wowed me were, Jose Lozano’s La Familia Que Nunca Fue and Richard Montoya’s Mickey Mao. I have been fortunate to see Lozano’s massive La Familia Que Nunca Fue print hung in his home, so it was special for me to view this piece in a public exhibition.
Jose Lozano - “La Familia Que Nunca Fue”
Prior to this show I had never seen Mr. Montoya’s print, but it quickly became one of my favorites in the exhibition. I even returned to the Mickey Mao print a couple times before leaving the gallery to bask in its awesomeness. Anita and I walked a couple times around the gallery to fully absorb all the great art in the exhibit. A walk around once was not enough for HEART OF EAST L.A. exhibition
Richard Montoya - Mickey Mao
The entire exhibit was visually pleasing and engaging, not just to me but to the rest of the art goers who left the gallery with a look of content on their face.
I would like to praise Poli Marichal and Cathy Weiss on their selection from the Self-Help Graphics art collection and amigo Jose Lozano for the live chalk drawing.
