Ron Pippin: Crossing the Axis, A Survey 1985-2013
Camilla Taylor: A Conversation, Relief Prints, Monoprints and Sculpture
Solo exhibitions surveying the work of two well known Los Angeles artists who work in figurative imagery in widely varying media and styles ranging from found objects in Ron Pippin's richly embellished assemblages to bronze and fabric in Camilla Taylor's stylized scultures. A survey of Pippin's vast and intriguing work in assemblage will include his ghostly model ships, his sculptural animals recreated out of discarded skeletons, found objects and other accouterments, and other mythic figures and vehicles. With his obsession for lyrical detail and his potent expression of inner struggles, Pippin's archetypal figures and animals become visual poetry.
Multi-media artist Camilla Taylor creates prints, illustrations, consumer objects, sculptures and more, drawing upon her interest in the figure that she filters through her unique design aesthetic and concepts. Her narrative prints, multiples, and 3D objects center on dark, monochromatic figures that have an anthropomorphic energy all their own. She also is involved in a dizzying array of other projects including her Portrait Project, her Paper Craft series and her Among Us series. These exhibitions are presented by the College of Arts and Humanities and are sponsored by the Instructionally Related Activities Committee of the Associated Students, Inc.

By Suzan-Lori Parks, Directed by Sharrell Luckett
Their father named them Lincoln and Booth...as a prank. Now grown men, their names and their histories haunt them. Trapped by their poverty, family history of abandonment, and ominously prophetic names, these two black men find themselves locked in a dangerous game of deception, fighting over just which one's the Player and which one's the Played. The brothers find themselves constantly conning those on the street and, ultimately, each other in this darkly passionate story about family grievances, racism, deep wounds and healing.

School for Scandal
By Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Directed by Kelly Herman
It's social networking — old school with the poisonous gossip of Richard Sheridan's School for Scandal. This is the original reality show, fraught with competition, sex, backstabbing, and debauchery. This classic still has enough bite to draw blood and it reminds us that human nature has not changed much as we can always be seduced by a tale of status, love, and betrayal.
