“Small Works in Flux” is an eclectic mix of little works by more than 60 Southern Californian artists. Betsy Lohrer Hall, curator/director of Flux Art Space, invited artists to bring “from one to five works, measuring no more than 8 inches in any direction.”
The works in the show range from tiny handmade drawings to photographs, paintings, mixed media works and sculptures. The exhibition is a changing installation; each week the configuration will be different, with some works rotating in or out and moving to different locations within the space.
“Small Works in Flux” features selections by artists ranging from those beginning their careers to those having international exhibitions and museum shows. Included are professional muralists, educators and curators. The use of space and placement is remarkable, as are the art works, including photos, drawings, assemblage, sculpture and mixed media.
Flux Art Space, celebrating its one-year anniversary with this show, is a curated project space at the front of the Belmont Heights storefront-studio of visual artist Hall. She is an international artist, curator and educator.
Flux helps to connect artists with each other, with art lovers and the art-curious. During its first year, Flux has hosted nine exhibitions, several workshops and talks, and dance performances.
