AERO THEATER, a painting of the historic Santa Monica movie theater, is one of the works by Peter Kempson that will be part of a new exhibit at the TAG gallery in Santa Monica.

TAG Gallery in Santa Monica will present a new exhibition featuring artists Lorraine Bubar, Peter Kempson and Stephanie Visser beginning Tuesday, Nov. 27 through Dec. 22.
The opening reception is scheduled from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1 at TAG, 2525 Michigan Ave. D3, Santa Monica. A conversation with the artists will be held Saturday, Dec. 15 at 3 p.m.
In her latest exhibit, Family Trees, Bubar continues to explore papercut techniques by representing family tree motifs, including various associations with the words “family” and “trees.” Her papercutting technique is rooted in an art form traditionally used to graphically represent the hierarchy in families over generations and practiced in many cultures, ranging from Eastern Europe and Asia to Mexico.
Kempson’s current show, Let’s Have Some Fun!, makes a departure from his previous Los Angeles street scenes and turns to playful explorations in mixed media. Engaging in humorous social critique, Kempson digitally layers familiar icons from pop culture to create satirical situations and landscapes that cross between fantasy and reality.
Visser’s latest body of work, The Inception Series, aims to challenge her viewers with paintings rooted in deeply intimate moments – those which intertwine emotion and memory. According to Visser, these “mental photographs” are reflective of everyday life, conveying paradoxes of sunlight and shadow, stillness and movement, sound and silence.
