Kaleidoscope – Couturier Gallery

At upcoming group exhibition “Kaleidoscope” you can stare at awesome colors for (virtually) as long as you want. And every time you look again, you see something you didn’t notice before. A range of works will be showcased; Gronk, Judithe Hernandez, Fausto Fernandez, Leslie Love Stone, Ana Serrano and many more make up an awesome roster of diverse talent. Prepare yourself for some intricate, bright, thought-provoking, surreal art. Head to the gallery on Saturday, July 12th for the opening party from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to check it out for yourself.

Highland Park Painted — Avenue 50 Studio

Not everyone can see the beauty in your average street corner but these artists definitely do. To see how skilled painters make the city look even more beautiful, check out the group show “Highland Park Painted.” With a diverse range of artists — they’ve studied art everywhere from Madrid to Rhode Island — the show proves that the tradition of painting your surroundings still makes for great art. Plein air painting, or painting outdoors, goes back centuries so it’s interesting to see the method used in a contemporary urban setting. To see if you recognize any of these city scenes, head to the show’s opening reception on Saturday, July 12th from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Who knows – you might even pick up an easel and go paint outdoors yourself.

Oral History Drops-Ins — Inglewood Public Library

In collaboration with the Inglewood Art + Film Lab, LACMA will host a special session dedicated to recording your most important stories. On Thursday, July 10 from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. you can drop in and share your story or ask a family member to share theirs with you. Bring a thumb drive and you can take home a copy of your recording and video. The event will also accommodate Spanish speakers — so abuelita can come, too.
