Los Angeles

Group Show

George Gallery

This new gallery opened with a group of paintings, sculptures and prints of mixed quality. Some of the old guard Los Angeles area painters (Phil Dike, Emil Kosa, Doug­lass Parshall) are exhibited along with artists who are somewhat more adven­turous. The work ranges from shallow decoration to pleasant abstraction to work which shows some consideration for esthetic problems. Outstanding in this group is Walter Askin’s Aetna, a stark, black, red and grey abstraction. Also noted was a print, Etching #3, by Ernest Freed.
