The tradition continues with new spaces opening regularly. NELA is now one of L.A.'s most exciting destinations to view contemporary art.
OPENING AT AVENUE 50 STUDIO: GANAS 2020, an exhibition of stencil and collage on canvas, and rubyliths by artist Ernesto Yerena. The exhibition is based on a story written by Yerena detailing a fictional revolutionary movement, GANAS, fighting for reform, empowerment and dignity. The opening reception for GANAS 2020 will be held on Saturday, August 13, 2011 from 7-10 PM. The exhibit will be on display through September 4, 2011 and is free and open to the public.
Yerena, born in El Centro, California, currently living in Los Angeles, but moving to Arizona fights for justice not only on paper, but in the community. He is the founder and curator of the Alto Arizona Art Campaign and the We Are Human Campaign.
