Lights, Cameras, ColorField Action

By Julia Beizer

Logan Circle is on and popping this weekend with several exhibit openings and two multimedia art parties. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and last until 1, so no matter what time you end up on 14th Street, there will definitely be something to see.

Let's start with the early shift. From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Hemphill Fine Art, Curator's Office, Irvine Contemporary and Randal Scott Gallery host opening receptions for their new exhibits, many of which are a part of the citywide ColorField Remix celebration. Hemphill is offering works by well-known color field painter Leon Berkowitz, in addition to works by contemporary painter Jason Gubbiotti and installation artist Portia Munson. Curator's Office kicks off a new technological art project called "Remembrancer," where robotic painting arms are controlled by data sensors in and around the gallery. Irvine Contemporary offers an exhibit of color field works, but it's also showing a new series of work by Oliver Vernon.

Randall Scott Gallery gets away from the color field theme with "The Living Room Show," an exhibit of contemporary art set in a space decorated like a regular living room -- if your living room is filled with top-notch European furniture, that is. That gallery is open until 9 p.m.

Further up the street, from 7 to 10 p.m., Project 4 Gallery and the Pink Line Project host "Press Play," a multimedia party featuring video and performance artists. Attractions include a projected piece using a person as the screen, an artist who blindfolds people and cuts their hair and the musical stylings of Aphrodizia, a loungey electronica band. There's no cover for the event, and beer and water will be free.

Finally, closing out this arts extravaganza will be the dudes from Dissident Display, Adrian Loving and Ayodamola Okunseinde. As part of ColorField Remix, an installation of their conceptual video work will be on view at the restaurant Viridian. Check out the exhibit's opening on Saturday from 10:30 p.m. until 1 a.m. when Adrian Loving and DJ Juliana will be on the decks.
