Art Openings in and around LA this weekend!

Here are three great art openings to check out in LA this weekend. If you are very clever you can try to go to all in one night! That would not be regrettable if possible 🙂

Civilizations: The Art of Dylan Cole at Gnomon Gallery
Opening Reception Saturday, November 14th 2009 from 7 PM – 11 PM
A collection of large format matte paintings by Concept Artist and Matte Painter Dylan Cole.
Artist Statement
“I have a deep fascination with epic environments and fantastical cities. I enjoy the scope and possibilities that they offer. What may start as a simple painting becomes an anthropological journey. I find myself inventing stories and customs as I add the detail that makes each of these worlds come alive.
“I often draw from existing cultures when developing my own civilizations. The detail and inventiveness of the varying cultures around the globe are far more potent than the imagination of one artist. So in drawing upon our rich history, I try to envision fantastic futures and alien pasts.”
