Abstract Vision Female Perspective is a new photo exhibition featuring the works of 7 Los Angeles women photographers. The shows opening reception is on Friday, February 11, 2011 and runs through March 6, 2011 at Urban Sanctuary Gallery, a community art space involved in leading the current artistic renaissance in Boyle Heights.
“Abstract” the show’s theme, is an attempt to free the photographer of current working day assignments without the restrictions or pressure of creating images for profit. On display will be works from artists:
• Bekka Melino,
• Carrie Camacho,
• Grace Oh,
• Janine Lim,
• Kerry Sawyers,
• Kyla Wright and
• Rosalinda Kooyman.
Each of the featured photographers brings something unique to the table. Directly influenced by their diverse backgrounds and multi-career choices, their common denominators include a camera and their love for Los Angeles. The exhibition was currated by local "artivist," Azul 213.
