"Being Here and There" at MOAH Lancaster, photographic works by twenty-six artists whose imagery derives from their individual and contemplative experience of place are featured in the Main Gallery. Situated among an array of topographies and ecosystems from the desert to the sea, each of their creative works provides us with a unique view and perspective of a spectacular landscape, unlike any other. These photographic works developed from each artist’s creative impulse to visually articulate and convey their independent vision of our remarkable Southern California landscape. Being Here and There Artists: Laurie Brown, Stephen Callis, Cristopher Cichocki, Scott B Davis, Lewis deSoto, John Divola, J. Bennett Fitts, Robbert Flick, Corina Gamma, Alexander Heilner, Steve King, Meg Madison, Tony Maher, Douglas McCulloh, Thomas McGovern, Catherine Opie, Naida Osline, Christopher Russell, Mark Ruwedel, Julie Shafer, Nicolas Shake, Kim Stringfellow, David Taylor, Andrew K. Thompson, Tom Turner and Amir Zaki. www.lancastermoah.org/

Spotlight: Las Vegas By Dawn-Michelle Baude

...McMackin currently curates a range of satellite spaces, including intimate, classy pop-up exhibitions in Emergency Arts, the downtown creative hub, and large, performative exhibitions in a whopping 5,000-foot warehouse on the edge of town. Running through January is "1 IS THE ZERO THAT COMES BEFORE," a solo exhibit by LA artist Nicolas Shake presenting sculptures, large-scale oil paintings and a site-specific photo collage. Next up in the warehouse is Mark Brandvik's "Volume Control" in February. "Long-term exhibitions are important, but I like to foster spaces and make something happen, for a day, for a week," McMackin says. "There are so many great sites around town--it's hard to choose."

DougH On The Go! review of No Region Would by Dough Harvey: "There are some very interesting sculptures and painting/sculpture hybrids, like Nicholas Shake's two-part work pairing a wretched albino clump-entity made from "friendly" plastic casts of tire treads and what looks like a basketball hoop with a circular monochrome black painting; your basic dog/moon kind of relationship, filtered through Rauschenbergian irony." http://dougharvey.blogspot.com/2013/10/no-region-would.html
