With CB1 Gallery between installations, Crewest and EVFA having closed their doors, the January 2013 Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk is a low-key introduction to a new year. That is not to say you will not be able to find solid art around downtown this month. Here are some of the highlights for Thursday, Jan. 10:
Art Walk Lounge brings working class concepts with Dee Craig, a Belfast artist "who uses bold hard lines to represent the strength and steadfastness that working class people ooze." Also in the lounge is Nick Begnaud, a artist who uses manipulations and media mash-ups shaped by a world view from being raised in the steel mill community of Youngstown, Ohio. Art Walk Lounge I 6-10 p.m.
