“Small Paintings”

Los Angeles Art Association

This overcrowded exhibi­tion of small paintings should have been a small exhibition. If it had been more carefully edited down to include Helen Lundeberg’s Studio­ Night, Aimee Bourdieu’s Festival, Ruth Rothstein’s Landscape, Ernest Velardi’s Poet’s Dream, Max Bailey’s Two Rocks, J. B. Thompson’s welded sculpture entitled Bird Machine, plus a very few others, it could have been a first-class show.
