Art gallery opens dialogue space

NORWALK - The Cerritos College Art Gallery has debuted a repurposed incarnation of its small North Gallery as a dialogue space, inviting emerging and established artists to collaboratively produce and exhibit new work.The inaugural exhibit opens Feb. 1 and is a collaborative project between Los Angeles-based artists John O'Brien and Steve Roden. Inspired by the soon to be superseded mid-century modernist architecture in which the Cerritos College Art Gallery is located on campus, O'Brien and Roden will "integrate the aesthetic patterns of the exterior of the building into the interior of the gallery space," according to a press release. The exhibit will remain open Feb. 1 - March 10. Gallery hours are Mondays and Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 5-8 p.m. Admission to the gallery is free. Daily parking is available for $2 in lot C-10.
