4:00pm - 7:00pm

The Brentwood Arts Exchange presents Rivers and Memories- the art of E. J.

Art Opening at Conner Contemporary Art 
6:00pm - 8:00pm

Conner Contemporary starts off 2012 with Bodies and Soul by Patrcia Cronin.  Inspired by 19th century American neo-classical sculpture, Cronin has created large bronze tombs to protest the Federal Government’s stance on gay marriage.  Cronin’s words explain it best “if I can’t have it in life, I’m going to have it in death.”

Art Opening at G Fine Art

6:00pm - 8:00pm

G Fine Art presents Ian Whitmore’s The Devil, a Shadow, the Notice of a Small Falling Leaf.  In this exhibition, three years in the making, Whitmore grapples with iconoclast Andreas Karlstadt’s anguish of believing paradoxically that religious iconography is blasphemous and should be destroyed while simultaneously fearing divine retribution for their destruction.
