    Beasts of the Unknown Curated by Yetis & Friends

    to

    Flower Pepper Gallery presents "Beasts of the Unknown Curated by Yetis & Friends," a fantastical group exhibition that showcases not-so-everyday creatures that delight and awaken the imagination in all of us. 

    Tall tales speak of beasts of legend. Whispers by the campfire warn of what lurks in the shadows. Whether gigantic or minuscule, intimidating or friendly as can be; throughout history, imagination has known no limits when it comes to dreaming up the most fantastic creatures. Wondrous monsters have fascinated people for generations and acted as spirit guides, protectors, or eerie warnings to describe phenomenon that could not yet be understood. This exhibition celebrates them all and there is no telling which fascinating beasts will make an appearance.

    Whether it’s the charming sculptural work of Daria Lapto and Zoë Williams, or the alternative taxidermy stylings of Sweaty Taxidermy and Valency Genis, there is a creature for everyone and they can’t wait to meet you. Stop by and say hello to all of the Beasts of the Unknown, and who knows, maybe one will just beg to go home with you!

    Enjoy the opening reception, free and open to the public, on Saturday, September 23  4:30 pm – 7:30 pm.

    12:00pm–5:00pm

    Armory Center for the Arts joins the citywide Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative with the exhibition "Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in 1990s Mexico."

    This exhibition examines diverse independent artist initiatives – from newly acquired brick and mortar spaces, to ad hoc street performances and interventions, living room galleries, clubs, collaboratively produced ‘zines, archives and collections, pirate radio programs, and more. The project also references pronounced divisions of class, race, and gender, with art objects themselves the tangible outcomes of many different conditions of creating, living, and experimenting within the same place. 

    The Armory Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, 12 noon to 5:00PM.
