A one-time art-school laboratory for born and bred Californians, Los Angeles is becoming a destination for many young artists who might have at one time located to New York City. Interesting variations of West coast art continue to develop L.A.'s Venice, Chinatown, and Echo Park areas where burgeoning alternative and artist-run galleries are nourishing communities of artists who have located there. New Angeles presents 22 artists beginning their careers in L.A, including Dwayne Moser's photographs of movie stars' lackluster mailboxes, Charles Irvin's disturbingly humorous video of a baby playing with a phony severed head, Mary Weatherford's dusky, melancholic landscapes replete with California light and seashell accoutrements, and Robert Gunderman's kitschy but endearing Sculpey and colored pencil bird figurines.
