LAND Exhibition at Irvine Fine Arts Center Opens Jan. 20

The Irvine Fine Arts Center announces the opening of LAND, its first exhibition of the new year. LAND runs Saturday, Jan. 20, through Saturday, March 10, and a free reception open to the public is Saturday, Jan. 20, 4-6 p.m. at the Center.

LAND focuses on works that seek to understand, highlight and critique our connection to land – from environmental issues to cultivation, development and mapping – and traces the change in that relationship from the past to the present and into the future. The multidisciplinary exhibit includes paintings and prints by Virginia Katz; drawings by Jennifer Celio and Christine Weir; paintings and a site-specific sculptural installation by Christine Nguyen; a live garden project by Michael Nannery and Kiyomi Fukui; and an immersive paper, video and sound installation by Chris Natrop.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. Exhibition, opening reception and parking are free. The Irvine Fine Arts Center is located inside Heritage Community Park at 14321 Yale Ave. For more information, visit irvinefinearts.org or call 949-724-6880.
