Meredith Allen's “Ice Pops” show cartoon character ice pops melting in the sun, the passage of time evident. Laura Fayer and Rachael Wren’s paintings tears nature up into little strokes of light and paint floating on the picture plane. Laura Fayer, Rachael Wren, Jeremy Stenger and Bryan Osburn explore the mysterious and moody world of a garden at night. Caleb Nussear's silverpoint drawings capture the delicacy of the clouds while Nitin Mukul depicts fleeting impressions of the LA River.
