L.A. to LA: A Robby Klein Photography Exhibition
January 20 - February 16, 2023
Opening Reception: Friday, January 20, 2023 | 5 pm - 8 pm | Main Gallery
Hailing from the Northshore, La and based in Nashville, TN, Robby Klein is an entertainment and portrait photographer. It was in the south that Robby first found a passion for photography at a young age. Growing up as an artist drawing and painting, it was an easy transition into taking pictures the day he found a camera. With a love for people Robby was quickly drawn into portraiture, add a background in music and gravitating toward entertainers was only natural.
Working all over the country, Robby is known for his personable images of some of today's most celebrated personalities in music and film including Dolly Parton, Billie Eilish, Justin Timberlake, A$AP Rocky, DJ Khaled, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Anthony Hopkins, Donald Glover, Jason Bateman, Natalie Portman, and Julia Roberts to name a few.

Mezzanine Gallery: Luminous Flow: Experiments in Light and Color Exhibition by Cindy Blair
January 20 - February 16, 2023
Opening Reception: Friday, January 20 | 5 pm - 8 pm | Mezzanine Gallery
Initially inspired by works found in luminary processions from around the world as well as the incredible shapes and colors of sea life found in our oceans. Cindy Blair's work has since evolved into experiments in shifting color and light and dramatic movement. In these most recent pieces, Blair explores texture and new materials, as well as experimenting with the flow of the material as it’s allowed to fold and fall when wrapped into various shapes.
On view in the Mezzanine Gallery Friday, January 20 - February 16, 2023 during regular gallery hours: Wed - Fri from noon to 6 pm.
