Billy White Solo Exhibition Shrine Gallery LA

Shrine LA 538 N Western Ave Los Angeles, CA 90004, Los Angeles

March NIAD Opening Reception + Artist Talk // “a clearing”, organized by Mel Prest + “Danny Thach: Best Buddies” + “Heart & Soul of Richmond”

NIAD Art Center 551 23rd Street, Richmond, CA

Through a variety of materials, these artworks attain a color energy using vibrant hues and textures. Optical vibrations and textures rumble as deeper looking opens to a clearing."
