A local artist will have his "found object" art pieces on display at California State University Dominguez Hills beginning at the end of the month, according to a news release from the university.
Palos Verdes resident Ron Pippin's solo exhibit, titled "Ron Pippin: Crossing the Axis, a Survey 1985-2014," will open Jan. 29 and continue through March 19 at the CSUDH Art Gallery.
"A survey of Pippin's vast and intriguing work in assemblage will include his eerie, densely layered books; his sculptural animals recreated out of discarded skeletons, found objects and other accoutrements; and other mythic figures and vehicles," according to the news release. "With his obsession for lyrical detail and his potent expression of inner struggles, Pippin's archetypal figures and animals become visual poetry."
Pippin, who graduated from the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles in 1968, has exhibited his works at the Obsolete Gallery in Venice, Couturier Gallery in Los Angeles, Sherry Frumkin Gallery in Santa Monica, at California State University Stanislaus, the Palos Verdes Art Center and the Sun Valley Center for the Arts and Humanities, among other places.
Pippin's exhibit at CSUDH will run concurrently with another titled "Camilla Taylor: A Conversation, Relief Prints, Monoprints and Sculpture." Taylor's paper and fabric sculptures will be on display.
The exhibits are presented by the College of Arts and Humanities and sponsored by the Instructionally Related Activities Committee of the Associated Students.
Both artists will participate in a question-and-answer session during the Jan. 29 opening reception at CSUDH. The reception is scheduled for 5:30-7:30 p.m., and the Q&A session will take place at 6 p.m.
The gallery is located in La Corte Hall A-107 and open from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Admission is free.
CSUDH is located at 1000 E. Victoria St. in Carson.
