Open Gallery: PORTALS, Stuart Hamilton: Earthly Meditations

January 20, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The gallery is open for walk-in visitors Thursdays – Saturdays, 10am – 4pm. All attendees must adhere to AGCC’s safety policy and protocols.

Well XVI, Esther Ruiz, 2017.


Curated by Stephanie Sherwood and includes works by Erin Harmon, Erika Lizée, Elana Mann, Yevgeniya Mikhailik, Alicia Piller, Adam Rabinowitz, Esther Ruiz, Howard Schwartzberg, and Svetlana Shigroff.

PORTALS reflects on the transformative nature of passageways – contemplating ideas of boundaries, entrance and egress, progress, and travel into the unknown. Working in tapestry, drawing, neon sculpture, resin and site-specific installation among other mixed media, the artists explore transformation, with the Port of Los Angeles as a relevant foil. PORTALS invites an experiential look at the work of nine contemporary artists whose works speak to the nature of these life-altering gateways.

Twelve Double Circles, Stuart Hamilton, 2019.

Stuart Hamilton: Earthly Meditations

Stuart Hamilton: Earthly Meditations includes over 50 works made during the late artist’s 10-year history at the Center. Earthly details taken out of context – stones, sticks, and bone fragments – are arranged in geometric patterns reflecting a sense of order in a meditative process that carefully considers the natural world. As the artist remarked on his practice, “I’ve chosen to focus on the beauty of the small and unspectacular from the natural world around me.”
