Contraption: Rediscovering California Jewish Artists. This group show that presents the work of sixteen California-identified artists of Jewish descent--both historical and living--whose work refers to the machine either literally or metaphorically. Some of the artists are rarely seen now. Among the living artists, there will be large-scale mechanical installations by Bernie Lubell and Sheri Simons, as well as ceramics, drawings, sculpture and paintings by Ned Kahn, Bella Feldman, Howard Fried and Annabeth Rosen.
Using the notion of machinery as a framework, this group exhibition presents the work of 16 California artists of Jewish heritage. This extraordinary and eclectic group of artists includes Bella Feldman, Howard Fried, Rube Goldberg, Ned Kahn, the late, great Richard Kamler, who recently passed, Bernie Lubell and Annabeth Rosen, among others.
