    Brian Gross Fine Art: Ed Moses - LA - San Francisco

    Comment by AB: Recent abstracts by Los Angeles artist Ed Moses, active as an artist for sixty years now. He's still going strong with his latest creations harking back to earlier works. Regardless of what you call them-- plaids, grids, diagonals-- they're indisputably good. Go see.

    Root Division: Cut From The Same Cloth; Bizarre Bazaar. Curated by Michael Arcega.

    Artists: Terry Berlier, Christy Chan, Alice Combs, Bronwyn Dexter, Natalie Falero, Juan Luna-Avin, Whitney Lynn, Simón García-Miñaúr, Gabby Miller, Chadwick Moore, Michael Ryan, Rebecca Szeto, Jon-Paul Villegas, Eike Waltz, Irene Carvajal, Rea Lynn de Guzman.

    Comment by AB: Not too clear on coalescence, but according to the deposition, ingredients include consumerism, commerce, the fetish commodity, and the dystopic capitalist system. The first one who puts that puzzle together wins.

    The Great Highway Gallery: Inside Out Upside Down - Jason Arnold & Jonathan Steinberg

    Comment by AB: On one wall, Jason Arnold's surrealist homages are inspired by Andre Breton. On the opposite wall, Jonathan Steinberg's Rothko-esque color-field paintings are actually closeups of old painted swim fins.
