And... yet another show announcement for the Culver City area and it seems that Ray Caesar (previously featured here, here, here, here, here, here and everywhere) is a busy man this month.

In the Nursery is a "contemporary interpretation of classic American nursery art" and has a very interesting line-up of artists including Chris Anthony, Tom Bagshaw, Shawn Barber, Scott G. Brooks, Ray Caesar (image below), Sas & Colin Christian, Korin Faught, Harma Heikens (image above), Liz McGrath and Martin Wittfooth. So this should be rather sweet.

I find it particularly interesting to see Liz McGrath rise from the interweb grave. I haven't really seen any new works since 2009 when she started using her mailing list contacts to regularly inform everyone what her husband Morgan Slade's been up to. Something I'm really not that interested in. But OH WELL.

Details below. Please note that the reception starts at 8 PM, not as 7 PM as listed on the website and that the Harma Heikens image only serves illustrative purposes as I'm not sure which of her works will be on show.
