So it looks like there are two interesting group show openings happening tomorrow. You'll have to venture a bit farther than might be usual to check out the first at Sylvia White Gallery in Ventura, which looks to be a great one. Guest-curated by Darryl Curran and Robert von Sternberg, the show follows the trajectory of artists over 40 years, with origins in a 1969 show curated by von Sternberg at the Downey Museum of Art, showcasing artists working in Southern California. There are some big names in this one:
Lewis Baltz, Darryl Curran, Robbert Flick, Susan Rankaitis, Robert von Sternberg,Robert Heinecken, Jo Ann Callis, Anthony Friedkin, Jerry McMillan Eileen Cowin, Jane O'Neal, and Todd Walker.
