In Santa Monica for just one evening, the New York City-based percussionist Sameer Gupta will be performing a unique musical experience with LA-based santoor player Kamaljeet Ahluwalia. Their performance will fuse the diverse traditions of Indian classical raga music, American jazz, soul music and Native American melodies - bringing together the power of collaboration and mindfulness towards others. Gupta has regularly performed at Lincoln Center NYC, SFJazz, Nehru Centre London and NYC MoMA, while Ahluwalia has written and produced numerous film and television scores globally.
This performance will be set against the beautiful background of the exhibition "Collaboration" which features photography of the Los Angeles Center of Photography and The Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

A big part of LACP’s mission is to provide “focused programming for youth and low-income families, and community outreach.” We take this very seriously. As a staple in the photographic community, our organization recognizes the importance of giving back by providing education in the photographic arts for underserved youth and other non-profits. This is accomplished through strategic programming at local schools, one-one-one mentoring, supporting local raffles or benefits, and providing our facility to those organizations in need.

Through July 6, 2019
In keeping with dnj Gallery’s commitment to showing photography that emphasizes concepts and beliefs and the evolution of the photographer’s artwork, “Development”, similar to previous shows, organizes an exhibit of these four gallery artists. Each of these artists began with a single question; a sole direction is taken. Multiple series are then created in order to discover the solution or to design an approach to find the answer. These various bodies become the different projects within each artist’s collection.
Opening reception: Saturday, May 18th, 6-8pm
Featuring: Sia Aryai, Ray Carofano, Dylan Vitone and Melanie Walker
March 23 - May 11, 2019
"Progression" is designed to show the conceptual character of dnj Gallery. The pieces are based upon certain notions and ideas. Art is an outlet for innovation and reflection. The different series are an alternate way to show their views. As a continuation of the previous exhibitions, since September, these dnj Gallery artists' thoughts and beliefs, or fundamental ideas are revealed in a gradual advancement of their artwork through the years.
ARTIST RECEPTION: THIS SATURDAY, February 23rd, 2-4pm
Darryl Curran will be available in the gallery to discuss his artwork and answer questions.
Curran exhibits two bodies of photographic work: solar photograms – SUN, and color prints – SHADOW.
For SUN, the solar photograms document small objects, leaves, tools, lace, etc., and are contact printed onto paper coated with gum pigment solution. A skylight in the gallery offers a real-time demonstration of the role of the sun in the process of exposing a photogram during the exhibition.
SHADOW features photographs that focus on fleeting traces of shadows cast upon a projection screen. The screen metaphor fuses the act of photographing black and white film through RGB filters, deconstructing the scene. Digital applications reconstruct the scene to reveal nuanced colorful shadows.
Exhibition runs through March 2nd
FREE STREET PARKING

Gil Kofman’s (January 7- January 19) project, “Formally Yours,” resumes attention of the placement of images in a rectangular field. Much like a stage does for a play, Kofman’s work creates an atmosphere for people to enter into his photographs, capturing a scene of their lives.
Second installment of “What’s New” featuring the latest photographs by the dnj Gallery artists for the inaugural show on Ocean Park Boulevard. Sia Aryai, Catherine Asanov, Ellen Cantor, Ray Carofano, Darryl Curran, Corey Grayhorse, Suda House, Gil Kofman, Clay Lipsky, LA Marler, Rick Risemberg, Annie Seaton, Dylan Vitone and Melanie Walker.
Corey Grayhorse, (November 17 – December 1) as always, designs vivid, colorful scenes full of the absurd and silly evoking a made-up reality. In a sense, she’s recreating dreams. In her series, “Artificial Memories,” she continues to describe a kind of “human expression.”
In this new body of works, Susan Moss explores transparency, light, nature, and being feminine through vibrant layering and dramatic forms. With her canvas she examines various elements of personal identity by tackling the mystery of half-hidden layers. Susan sought to explore the essence behind lurking emotions. When looking into a pond, is our own image reflected back capturing our attention, or do we see deeper?
bG Gallery, Ocean Park presents a solo exhibit of the latest work by artist Gay Summer Rick. “Skyways and Highways” is a series of color-rich works with a focus on air and land travel. The new series captures air flight above the horizon of the artist’s usual subject matter, iconic urban and coastal areas.
A longtime transplant to Los Angeles from New York, Gay Summer Rick’s work has been distinctive in finding beauty in the constantly developing city. Train routes, city centers, and freeways have met the artist’s touch and are reinterpreted as atmospheric energy. Recently, a new flight path above Los Angeles has diverted her gaze to the skies. Gay Summer developed a fascination with the passage of flight. This fascination led her to redirect recent air travel in order to revisit and study different airport locations.
In response to the growing tide of hatred in the current political climate, Reilly sought to create a series of work about love. For this new series Reilly uses postmodern exploration and shaped canvas to create a series of works exploring love narratives and traditional love myths, reinterpreted in contemporary context.
