After discerning similarities in the work of Southern artists and their California counterparts, Ruby Green guest curator Mery Lynn McCorkle has organized a show of illustrations by 15 artists from Southern California. McCorkle is based in Los Angeles but hails from Georgia, and her selections demonstrate the way that the warm weather, and laid-back culture of both the South and Cali result in similar artistic expressions. Artists include Cherie Benner Davis, Tao Urban, Joe Biel, Timothy Nolan, Thomas Muller, Nick Agid, Rebecca Niederlander, Heather Brown, Mara Lonner, Alison Foshee, Virginia Katz, Andre Yi, Samantha Fields, Roland Reiss and Dawn Arrowsmith, whose meticulous work details the artist's interior landscapes, creating psychic portraits and emotional schematics.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Oct. 18. Continues through Nov. 29, 2008
