George Lawson Gallery, in collaboration with TI-155, presents
1 Avenue of the Palms Suite 155
Treasure Island, San Francisco
Open weekdays 11-5 pm
This exhibition presents selections from a body of over 100 small canvases by noted Los Angeles painter John Millei, all completed in what seems like a single creative burst during the first few months of 2017. The collective title, From the Same Hill, refers to Millei’s hillside Santa Barbara studio. Millei characteristically works in a rich impasto, juxtaposing the characteristics of oil and acryllic. His work flows seamlessly between figurative reference and physical gesture, and even at this small scale, exudes a robust presence. John Millei’s work has been shown internationally and can be found in numerous museums and private collections.
This exhibition is a collaboration with TI-155 and will be held at 1 Avenue of the Palms Suite 155, Treasure Island, San Francisco. The proceeds will in part benefit the ACLU.
