Something Wicked This Way Comes
Curated by Stephanie Chefas
Opens Saturday, February 23rd, 2013 7-10pm
To request an online preview, please email [email protected]
On Saturday, February 23rd, Cella Gallery is delighted to present Something Wicked This Way Comes, a provocative group exhibition featuring multiple works from 10 innovative artists handpicked by Contemporary Art Curator, Stephanie Chefas.
A celebratory mix of the surreal and macabre, Something Wicked This Way Comes, delves the senses into ominous worlds and forsaken dreams. The exhibit is a composition of some of the most powerful contemporary artists whose inherent aesthetic is both visually rebellious and viscerally seductive. "Each artist was chosen based on their dark allure and ability to transform what naturally repels us into something utterly captivating," states Chefas. "By consistently pushing conventional norms, these artists are simultaneously challenging the viewer as well as themselves."
Through an assemblage of mixed media works, oil paintings, watercolor and graphite drawings, Something Wicked This Way Comes features the talent of Annie Owens, Christian Rex van Minnen, Christine Wu, Chrystal Chan, David Ball, Fulvio Di Piazza, Jana Brike, Jessica Ward, Judith Supine, and Michael Page. Expect to feel the hairs on your neck stand straight up; for something wicked this way comes.
Cella Gallery, 11135 Weddington Street, Suite 112, North Hollywood, CA

Modern Eden Gallery Presents:
Inspirations from Poe's Raven
403 Francisco Street San Francisco, CA 94133
Opening night Saturday, December 15, 2012
6:00-10:00 pm in PDT
Show runs December 15th - Januray 6th 2013
Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to announce “Nevermore” a group show inspired by Poe’s “The Raven”. "The Raven" is often noted for its dark and supernatural atmosphere and has been inspiring artists since it’s first publication in 1845. It tells the tale of a talking raven's mysterious visit to a distraught lover, documenting the man's slow fall into madness. The lover, is lamenting the loss of his love, Lenore. Sitting on a bust of Pallas, the raven seems to perpetuate his distress with its constant repetition of the word "Nevermore".
For Nevermore, our artists are taking their own inspirations from the classic work and dissecting elements and themes from the work. From portraits of the mysterious Lenore, to the stone cold bust of Pallas, alongside portraits of the loquacious raven and even Edgar Allen Poe himself, the gallery walls will house works inspired by one of the most famous poems ever written.
Featuring works by Lara Dann, Jaclyn Alderete, Lacey Bryant, Layil Umbralux, Ashley Bell, Melissa Morgan, Kassie McMahon, Shawn Kawa, Aniela Sobieski, Lucy Hillenbrand, Cayetano G. Valenzuela, Michael Foley, Jeffrey Felker, Ransom & Mitchell, Sheri Jurnecka, Cory Benhatzel, Sherry DeLorme, Jessica Ward, Akira Beard, Derek Harrison, Timo Hanley, Patrushka, Joseph Kohls, Adam Rozan, Corey Urlacher, Brianna Angelakis, Craig LaRotonda, Leon Loucheur, Mary Syring, Edward Cao, Catherine Moore, Shannon Amidon, Daisy Church, James Marc, Alice Savage, Derrick Scocchera, and Debra J. Gardner Abarca.
The opening reception for "Nevermore” will be held at Modern Eden on Saturday, December 15th from 6-10pm. The exhibition will be on display through January 6, 2013 and is free and open to the public. Complimentary beverages will be served by Three Wishes Winery and Rolling Rock. There will be a live DJ set by DJ Brendan J. during the reception.

Curated by Aunia Kahn & Russell J. Moon, and hosted at the wonderful Modern Eden Gallery each artist brings their interpretation of a "Moon Goddess" to the walls of the gallery. Lighting your night with passion, celestial visions, and all encompassing creativity.
Having been photographed, painted, sculpted, costumed, and brought about in every medium to secure her mystical allure into eternity -- it is no wonder why we adore her presence. With this exhibition the artists have taken all her nature, and created artwork based on the "moon".

"Rock Is Dead" co-curated by The Creep
at Hyaena Gallery
1928 W. Olive Ave.
Burbank, CA 91506
September 1st - 30th 2012
Saturday, Sept. 8th
Brian Smith, Haley Dennison, Sara Ray, Jeremy Cross, Donnie Green, Cam Rackam, Shawn Dickinson, Todd Robey, Megan Besmirched, Dan Harding, Jessica Ward, Sean Bigtasty Philbin, Kepi Ghoulie, Larkin Cypher, Brian Bubonic and Chris Densmore.
"Rock is dead. You can blame the Internet and
Rebecca Black, but that doesn't change the
fact that we let it die. We put too much or a
burden on our musical heroes and so many
of them cracked with the weight. Others
succumbed to age or accident and the simple
curse of mortality. There's a collective legacy
left behind by these legends of song that
continues to inspire the new generations of
songwriters and musicians. We forget, I think,
over time, just how unique and important these
pioneering personas are to so many aspects
of our lives. Our memories are formed
around their art, specific events associated
permanently with the music we experienced
at the time. And when these heroes are gone
you have to ask yourself, where are the
successors? Who can replace Joe Strummer?
Elvis? Lux Interior or Kurt Cobain? Joey,
Dee Dee, or Johnny? Dimebag Darrel or
Johnny Cash? There is no one to fill those
shoes and each bastardized song in a car
commercial only serves to dig that grave a
little deeper. So, yeah, Rock is dead…
This is our tribute to the greats,
our resurrection of music through art."
