New Exhibit | EMERGENCE: In Between Spaces

Abstract Paintings by Matt Key

On View May 26 to June 13
By Appointment, contact

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 5th 6 PM to 9 PM
Art Fair and Closing Reception: Sunday, June 13th Noon - 4 pm

Gallery 203 is proud to present abstract paintings by Matt Key. Exhibited are recent paintings from three series: Allium & Parsimony, I-10 West, and D.U.M.B.O.; in which Matt explores passageways and the spaces around them through abstracted imagery inspired during his travels. A sense of emergence from earthly bounds traverses his work and is especially apparent through his use of abstracted plant forms in Allium & Parsimony. In the repetition of form a personal lexicon has emerged for exploring horizontal and vertical planes and how they meet. The architectonics of nature are re-envisioned in the fluidity of paint and Matt’s studied approach to the meeting of places and spaces, suggesting an emergence from earthly to ethereal planes.

Free Event, 3hrs Free Parking with Validation

Little Tokyo Galleria

333 S. Alameda St., #203

Los Angeles, CA 90013

A new alternative art space, Gallery 203, is opening on the border of Little Tokyo and the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles, featuring artwork by Caroline Kim and Kirsten Gabbe.

On display is Caroline Kim’s “Contact: experiment on broadcasting” which plays with the idea of art existing in malls. With her site-specific installations and performance art, Caroline creates unexpected contemplative and interactive moments.

Kirsten Gabbe presents her most recent series “After Paintings,” departing from her representational work to explore the base nature of oil painting in translucent washes on canvas. To encourage interaction from the community, Kirsten set up “Memory Net,” on which visitors can add their personal connections to a Little Tokyo timeline.

The artists are excited to present their work in this commercial mall, with the sounds of the arcade nearby, myriad restaurants around, Karaoke across the way, and Cherry on Top frozen yogurt beckoning below.

Basic street parking or garage parking is available for the event. Entrance to parking garage is located on Alameda, just south of 3rd Street. Validation will be provided for three hours of free parking.

Please spread the word about this new venue in the Arts District. Future plans include featured artists and group exhibitions. For additional information, please contact the artists at
