Sweets & Treats: Edward Cella Gallery, LA, USA

Edward Cella Gallery is pleased to present Sweets & Treats a kaleidoscopic and mouthwatering group exhibition featuring a compendium of new, recent, or historic abstract and figurative paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures created by the gallery's roster of artists and from artist’s working and living in Inglewood or beyond. The exhibition features work by Jennifer Bannert, Adam Berg, Kelly Brumfield Woods, Kendell Carter, Linda Daniels, Mara De Luca, Shahla Friberg, Pedro E. Guerrero, Laddy John Dill, Helen Lessick, Brad Miller, Moritz Neuhoff, Franco Mondini-Ruiz, Eamon O'Kane, Patti Oleon, Minna Philips, Mary Anna Pomonis, Megan Riera, Matthias Reinmuth, Stuart Sandford, Lisette Schumacher, Emily Silver, Chris Trueman, Bettina Weiss, and Wosene.
The group exhibition is inspired by a 1964 photograph taken by Mexican American photographer Pedro E. Guerrero (1917-2012) of the Roxbury, Connecticut studio of American sculptor Alexander Calder (1898-1976) and celebrates the creative and generative power found in the studios of artists. Sweets & Treats highlights parallels and synchronicities between artists working in diverse locations; using a variety of processes and materials; and approaching from distinctive backgrounds, cultures, and identities. Installed in the Salonstyle, the exhibition juxtaposes paintings with drawings and photographs with sculptures offering visitors an immersive experience rich with graphic counterparts and comparisons. Underscoring the dynamic visual thinking and expression that each artist represented undertakes in their practices, the exhibition revels in the joy of looking and the sensory pleasure of enjoyment of art.
