Larry's photographs will be featured in the exhibition and publications related to Niki de Saint Phalle: Mythical California opening January 13 – March 4, 2018 at California Center for the Arts. He was one of the chief photographers documenting the construction of her sculpture garden, Queen Califia's Magical Circle, a major work gifted to the city of Escondido. In the early 1960s, she was a member of the "New Realists," a group that included Christo, Yves Klein, and Jean Tinguely (whom she later married.) She is known for oversized, voluptuous female figures called "Nanas." Among her large-scale installations are the Stravinsky Fountain at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
Once Upon a Body is a project in collaboration with Art Produce, July-Nov 2017. Using ideas, images and stories gathered from community participants during workshops and open studio sessions,Bhavna created paper sculptures and wearables shown in a community celebratory event on November 18, 2017. Thanks to Lynn Susholtz and her incredible team at Art Produce for their support.

Melissa Smedley Shows “Perishables,” an Installation, through December 5, 2017 at Open Ground Studios
Perishables is a visual meditation on (the) “Lettuce Curtain” and other facets of the agricultural tapestry of the Salinas Valley. In this era of vigorous debate over our country’s lack of clear policies on immigration and severe climate factors, many of us are actively wondering, “what is the true cost of our food in this country?" What if we were to compensate these tax-paying workers with overtime and create paths to citizenship? And what if we were to, as a community, vigorously and conscientiously protect the crucial water table beneath our feet?
