dnj Gallery artist - Darryl J. Curran


"I started this work in the late 1970’s. Influenced by Paul Outerbridge, I set out to make my own color photographs in an old fashioned way, with camera separation. Creating photographs in this manner encourages inaccuracy and serendipity, mistakes and happy accidents. Using the triad color filters; red, blue and green with black and white film I was able to re-create the original color of the scene via Kwik Print (a non silver process), photo silkscreen or preferably, the dye transfer process." by J.K. Lavin (read more)

* Photographs by Darryl C. Curran  will be exhibited at dnj Gallery from January 11– February 29, in the exhibition entitled, "The Path of Darryl Curran:  from the 1960s – the present (and the Origins of Conceptual Photography)."  It will be a retrospective of his work from the 1960s to the present.

LACP's Sixth Annual Members' Exhibition Opening Reception

Saturday, August 10th, 2019

The Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP) proudly presents its Sixth Annual Members’ exhibition, a beautiful collection of photography selected by Douglas McCulloh, Senior Curator of Exhibitions, California Museum of Photography, Riverside. CA. Douglas selected 50 images (from 39 photographers) for the exhibition at dnj Gallery, showing August 10 – 31, 2019. As part of its mission, LACP strives to support its Members in many ways, including this annual exhibition, open to Members only.

A big part of LACP’s mission is to provide “focused programming for youth and low-income families, and community outreach.” We take this very seriously. As a staple in the photographic community, our organization recognizes the importance of giving back by providing education in the photographic arts for underserved youth and other non-profits. This is accomplished through strategic programming at local schools, one-one-one mentoring, supporting local raffles or benefits, and providing our facility to those organizations in need.

dnj Gallery Artist Ellen Cantor

dnj Gallery Artist Ellen Cantor was featured by Peerspace as one of "the The 7 Best Fine Art Photographers in Los Angeles".

From the article:

"Ellen is a visual artist exploring nostalgia with her widely exhibited work. Using still-life images, she explores in photos the cerebral action of remembrance. Her work is an exploration of objects tied to a sentimental past — suitcases, clothing, etc. — all of her subjects move through time and invite you to think about your relationship with life itself. About her own work, she says, “My images are conceived in the family album. By photographing and re-contextualizing precious mementos I have sought to understand how life proceeds and then, ultimately, disappears.” "

See more of Ellen Cantor's work on our websiteartsy page, and in the gallery, currently featured in the Collection Room -- through August 31st.

dnj Gallery Artist - Robert Von Sternberg "Unlikely Conversations"

Unlikely Conversations: Selections from the University Art Collection

California State University, Northridge Art Galleries is pleased to present the exhibition Unlikely Conversations: Selections from the University Art Collection. Drawn from the University’s conceptually and formally diverse collection of historically significant artworks, the 70+ objects in the exhibition represent a variety of artists from the mid-twentieth century onwards, and include drawings, paintings, prints, and sculptures.
The mission of the collection is to encourage learning and research for students, faculty, and members of the local community; and enrich the CSUN campus by loaning works to publicly-accessed spaces on campus. Unlikely Conversations marks the first time a significant number of works are brought together in an exhibition dedicated to the Collection’s legacy.
Launched in 1977 by a generous donation of drawings, paintings, and prints by acclaimed artist and CSUN Professor Emeritus Hans Burkhardt, the University Collection now holds more than 2,000 artworks by other emeritus faculty, alumni, and artists from the San Fernando Valley, greater Los Angeles area, and beyond. In subsequent years, Burkhardt continued to augment the collection with his work as well as work by other artists from his personal collection until his death in 1994.
A number of works on display include prints by Lita Albuquerque and Ed Ruscha from Cirrus Editions, Ltd.; photographs and silkscreens from the Andy Warhol Foundation; artworks by CSUN Professors Emeriti Bob Bassler, Karen Carson, Marvin Hardin, and Robert von Sternberg; and early California works by Maynard Dixon, Paul Landacre, and Granville Redmond. In addition, the Galleries are delighted to exhibit the recent gift of former faculty member Fritz Faiss’ paintings and prints.
