"I don't mind parting with the corn, but not with the field in which it was raised." John Constable
new works by Adrienne Outlaw
Through April 17, 2015
"I’m interested in individual autonomy in an increasingly diverse and
rapidly advancing society. Spun addresses issues of individual choice
within a framework of global consumption in its exploration of how desire
shapes society. I believe we can create a sea change in a world that
encourages excess by choosing to live in moderation." Adrienne Outlaw.
new work by Joe Sloan
Panels in Chromatransposition each display roughly 21,600 dot stickers, hand-placed one by one. Each piece in the series is based around a single solid color, which is dissected into 4 or 5 base colors. Base colors go through an algorithm that determines their individual influence over the hue and value of the overall color, and are produced in amounts proportional to the surface area of each canvas. The stickers are purposefully distributed randomly to eliminate patterns and to evenly distribute color information reaching the eye of the viewer.

Nothing Means Anything
New works by Kenny King and Keith Stone
June 6 thru June 22
" I've always felt most satisfied with artwork I've created, where in the process I've stepped out of the way. Away from the illusion of separateness and self. Letting a greater force work through me and merely becoming a instrument of its manifestation. Therefore, in an abstract way, if art is the landscape of consciousness, its creation becomes a very holy process although I'm not creating anything because I am only translating one form of matter into another. " Kenny King
PAINTINGS BY ILA ROSE
May 2 thru June 1
Ila Rose explores living and dying in Low Gallery’s Verdant Decay.
Low Gallery exhibits the contemplative and sometimes confrontational watercolors of San Diego newcomer, Ila Rose. Themes of mortality and regeneration run rampant in Ila Rose’s old souled portraits with immaculately rendered flora and fauna.
Everything Makes a Sound
Paintings and poetry by Anna Zappoli
April 4th thru April 27th
Italian born painter Anna Zappoli is well established in San Diego as a wildly expressive artist who who seemingly effortlessly absorbs and releases inspiration to those who are fortunate enough to come near her or her art. Followers of Anna’s work will recognize her signature palette (black) but may be surprised at the abstract direction some of her most recent pieces have taken.
new paintings by Sergei Rusakoff
March 12- March 30
Nucleus comes to Low Gallery in the same spontaneous spirit as Rusakoff’s new work.
Albert and the Black Hearts
A celebration of love and other tragedies
Pop culture commentator and art world sweetheart, Albert Reyes throws his love up all over the Low Gallery Walls.
Just as Romeo sunk under the heavy burden of love, none of us is immune to the temptation of accepting heart shaped boxes never knowing whether their contents will fill us with ecstasy or despair. This exploration of love, lust, and infatuation is dense in the delicate linework of master draftsman Albert Reyes. Reyes meticulously renders his studies with the utmost care and attention making him a natural choice to cover the Low walls with red inked, Valentine like, prints as well as original drawings.
Celeste Byers, Colin Manning, and Marcella Kroll
1/17/2014 to 2/9/2014
Low Gallery welcomes the new year with Eternal Spring, a vibrant chromatic display of visual delights from some of the West Coast’s best tuned instruments. Low Gallery will be bathed in vivid colors, texture, light and sound in it’s maiden voyage of 2014, Eternal Spring, which will feature muralist/illustrator/activist Celeste Byers (San Diego, CA), photographer/projection artist Colin Manning (Portland, OR), fine artist/psychic medium Marcella Kroll (Los Angeles, CA).
Meegan Nolan, the show’s curator sees the culmination of sights and sounds as a smudging of psychic spaceand and a celebration of the limitless potential of renewal. “I have always been fascinated by the idea of perpetual motion and the transfer of energy. From Bhaskara’s wheel, to the ourobourus, to dark energy. It seems we all want to hit the refresh button, but it’s always happening even without us. Endlessly.”
12/13/2013 to 1/14/2014

Lighting design by Jonathan Entler and site-specific installation by Sean Brannan
In keeping with its commitment to blur the lines that attempt to divide one genre of art from another-particularly art and design-Low Gallery presents Post Pop, an exhibit featuring the work of two Southern California artists, sculptor, Jonathan Entler and abstract painter, Sean Brannan .
Post Pop combines Entler's highly sculptural light fixtures, made using only the clay itself, transparent glaze, natural light, and at times, translucent paper and Brannan's latest body, "Response Curves," which depicts concentric circles in sharply contrasting chroma that draw the viewer into an illusory space.
Entler's beautiful mounted lamps and chandeliers will appear to grow out of the gallery's stark, white walls and ceiling, while illuminating Brannan's site-specific installation that is a large-scale extension of his Response Curve series.
New works by Jessica Buie and Conrad Mecheski
Jessica Buie renders abstractions of experiential information as a means of exploring meaning and whether its significance is lost, remains intact, or is altered in it's translation.
Conrad Mecheski sees himself as a storyteller, talking to the paper with ink (in this case) and also eventually to the viewer. His deeply psychological line drawings shift in mood, theme, and intensity as time measures the ritual of his daily practice.
'well & Good
Mike Maxwell and Alli Good
Low Gallery's debut reception, "''well and Good" will feature new art by San Diego heavy hitter Mike Maxwell alongside the visions of cult status Asheville, NC artist Alli Good.
Maxwell sites psychedelics, sex, and war among his sources of inspiration and the level of his craftsmanship has become as much part of his work as the historical and cultural references he makes. Mike is also the host and producer of the Live Free Podcast. Good's work, influenced by comics and pop art, often employs the use of grotesque nudity to explore deep issues of feminity creating images that are both disturbing and strangely poignant. The artists share an unflinchingly bold aesthetic illustrated in acidic colors and muted tones that grab the viewer by the eyes and don't let go. "'well and Good" promises to deliver to San Diego the Wild West on moonshine.
Low Gallery host pop up group show of some of their favorite local artists as a prelude to their grand opening
