untitled # 7 (from The Linens), 2012 acrylic, graphite on polished medium-weight Belgian linen 20 x 22 in.

George Lawson Gallery in Los Angeles presents the work of CCA President Stephen Beal March 15-April 27 (the opening reception was held March 16 from 5 to 8 pm.).

The gallery will showing selections from two series by Beal -- paintings on wooden panels and stretched linen that predominately engage white. A 140-page hardcover book with 62 color reproductions accompanies the exhibition.

Gallerist George Lawson commented on the exhibition. "Both groups provide an opportunity to chart the evolution of Beal’s understanding, and at the same time, to gauge the maturation of painting in general as a discipline responsive to contemporary issues.

"Beyond formal variations on the grid, these works are stages set for what paint can do; they reveal the broad range of the medium’s capacity to record touch, revel in nuance and articulate values in a manner language cannot reach."
