The group exhibition Out Of The Woods presents local artist Eric Johnson and three furniture makers from San Pedro and surroundings, Stephen Courtney, Harold Greene and William Stranger.
Just two month ago San Pedro became a destination town for crafts and other handmade pieces like small furniture at Crafted at the Port of LA. At the same time, San Pedro has been home to accomplished contemporary LA artists for many years. This newest development has not been sitting well with some of the local fine artists, who would rather see San Pedro as a Fine Arts destination only.
We thought this would be a wonderful backdrop for a group show presenting a mix of handmade unique furniture and fine art.
The exhibition presents masters in their field and we hope it will encourage a discussion about borders and overlaps in fine arts, crafts, design and furniture making.
Come to our panel discussion On September 30 and let us know what you think. We will fire up our bbq grill and serve hearty snacks.

Four artist & longshoremen presenting the world around the Port of Los Angeles
‘Gangs’ in Longshoremen jargon are teams always working together on assigned tasks at the Port. Gangs are distinguished by their names and ‘Gang’s Home’ simply means that the Gang is not working at a given day.
All four artists use different medias and techniques: representational and inspirational, storytelling paintings, close up photographs that look like abstract paintings as well as wood colorful woodcarvings representing colorful imaginative creatures. Before you come to the gallery, wet your appetite with the following installation images.
Like what you see here? Come to the gallery and check out the originals.
The show is up until Friday, August 17, 2012
See you at the gallery!

Mandala in ancient Sanskrit means “circle” and it depicts the divine truth of the universe.
This mandala is created out of the same words repeated from the inner to the outer circle, circle after circle.

To bring a new show up another has to come down. Freedom of Pattern was a expressive and meditative experiments in color and form. The works in the show vibrated with energy and feeling. A synthesizer, Thomas brings together themes from science, mathematics and religion in his works, deceptively simple in design, but which, upon serious inspection, reveal a deep interest in the mystery of the systems that govern both our physical and spiritual universes.

Gallery Neuartig is hosting a Coffee Klatch on January 28, 3:00 to 5:00 PM
with a conversation about the history of the labyrinth and more.
Gallery Neuartig is collaborating with Annemarie Rawlinson, a local artist and labyrinth make to create a Friends of the Labyrinth Group and to make San Pedro a city of labyrinths.
Annemarie has created many labyrinths for public and private spaces (list and images available upon request). She was trained as labyrinth builder and facilitator under Dr. Lauren Artress from Grace Cathedral. She has lectured wildly on the historical roots of the labyrinth and its contemporary uses.
We are looking forward to a lively conversation. Everybody is invited, experts and novices alike.
We are looking for like- and open-minded people to join us. We want to create awareness and interest for the labyrinth in Los Angeles and beyond.
WE WANT TO CREATE LABYRINTHS IN SAN PEDRO and have already one in planning….
We are planning to create regular events, either at the gallery or visit labyrinths in the area.
We want to create an inventory of labyrinths in Southern California. If you know some labyrinth locations, let us know.
Join us for a creative and spiritual experience. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Bob Wilhite’s silent musical drawings are a delicate and powerful play on his silent instruments from the past. But are the drawings really silent? Look closer and suddenly the silent music released by the cubes changes to become sound. Each cube in each drawing has its own sound according to its pencil strokes, shapes and density of color. Each drawing is an enticing musical and visual experience completed by a line of poetry. Each drawing is a joy to experience by itself, presenting all 25 drawings together intensifies the uniqueness of each drawing and sound and creates a balanced wholeness at the same time. Enjoy the installation shots of the exhibition. All 25 single drawings and more information about the exhibition can be found here: Musical Drawing and sculptures.
