Born 88 years ago today — Edward Kienholz! As a gallerist, curator, art dealer, and visual artist, he was a promoter of the Los Angeles avant-garde. In 1957 he cofounded the #FerusGallery with #WalterHopps. Known for his large-scale, immersive sculptures, Keinholz pushed the boundaries of contemporary art. Happy Birthday #Keinholz! #edkeinholz #edwardkeinholz

#OnThisDay in 1977, Elvis Presley passed away in Memphis. However, the King of Rock and Roll’s legacy lives on to this day. Andy Warhol was largely fascinated by the cultural icon and sex symbol. He used Elvis’ image from the 1960 movie Flaming Star as the subject for his famous screen prints which debuted at the Ferus Gallery in 1963.

#MuseumMonday Works by John Mason at the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Mason’s sculptures are "an unfathomable technical feat evincing extraordinary control of the medium and yielding flat planes and geometries that are unnaturally precise” - Michelle Grabner, co-curator, 2014 Whitney Biennial. #JohnMason #albertzbenda #WhitneyBiennial2014 #sculpture #ceramic #ferusgallery #LAartist #AmericanArtist

#TBT Ed Moses at work in his studio in 1985 – Moses is known to paint with a variety of non-traditional tools and techniques on un-stretched canvases laid out on the floor. His work is currently on view at the New Britain Museum of American Art, CT as part of California Dreaming: Ed Moses, Billy Al Bengston, & Ed Ruscha. #throwbackthursday #edmoses #albertzbenda #wip #inthestudio #painting #ferusgallery #coolschool #thestuds #nbmaa #californiadreaming

Yesterday was Andy Warhol’s birthday! The famed artist was born on August 6, 1928 in Pittsburgh. Before starting his career, Warhol worked as a shoe designer and a commercial artist where he used a silk screen. In 1962 Andy had a solo show at the Ferus Gallery, but it was the 1964 group show, "The American Supermarket," which catapulted him to be the leading figure of the Pop Art movement.

Last night's sunset reminded me of the Joe Goode painting I grew up with . 🌞🌅🌈✨ #joegoode #californiaartist #dadhadgoodtasteinart #tomcloud #ferusgallery #coolgang #california #solucky

Today's blog post is on one of my favorite Los Angeles artists, Craig Kauffman and his plastic wall-reliefs. Kauffman's wall-reliefs were some of the most ground-breaking works to come out of the Los Angeles "Cool School," which included artists such as Ed Ruscha, Robert Irwin, and Billy Al Bengston. These sculptures diverged from the popular expressionism practiced by many of his peers and began to explore the minimalist style. I hope you enjoy it! Link in bio
