The latest show at Los Feliz's La Luz de Jesus Gallery showcases the work of Annie Murphy-Robinson and Jessica Dalva. Emily and the Cosmos is Murphy-Robinson’s group of photograph-like charcoal-on-linen drawings treated with sandpaper. Breathtakingly intimate, these portraits use her two young daughters as subject matter. In These Days, sculptor and puppet maker Dalva shares 24 woman-centered sculptures and drawings imbued with mystery. The show is on view till February 24.

La Luz de Jesus says…

La Luz de Jesus Gallery was established in 1986 as the brainchild of entrepreneur and art collector Billy Shire, considered largely responsible for fostering a new school of California art and prompting JUXTAPOZ Magazine to dub him "the Peggy Guggenheim of Lowbrow." Showcasing mainly figurative, narrative paintings and unusual sculpture, the exhibitions are post-pop with content ranging from folk to outsider to religious to sexually deviant. The gallery's objective is to bring underground art and counter-culture to the masses. Past shows have been groundbreaking, launching unknown artists who have since become famous, such as Manuel Ocampo, Joe Coleman, and Robert Williams. A new exhibit opens on the first Friday of each month, with an opening reception that DETAILS Magazine calls "the biggest and best party in Los Angeles."
