Maxwell Alexander Gallery Commemorates an Exciting First Year
Jeffrey Carlson Reporting

What better way to celebrate the culmination of an exciting year of art installations than with another attractive show?
Maxwell Alexander Gallery is nearing the end of an eventful first year. In 2013, the Culver City, California, gallery went a long way to establishing itself among the premier destinations for contemporary realism on the West Coast. From its highly attended grand opening exhibition last December to a hyped exhibition organized around the theme of skulls, Maxwell Alexander Gallery has offered a consistently quality blend of figurative, still life, and landscape paintings and drawings, executed in traditional, progressive, and Western modes of representation.
The works on view are united not by any common theme, but by their status as forerunners in their particular genre. Kim Cogan’s visionary cityscapes hang next to David Kassan’s deeply spiritual and psychologically penetrating portraiture. Colorful pop-Western images of cowboys and Native Americans from Duke Beardsley, Logan Maxwell Hagege, and Bill Schenck represent the freshest wave in art of the American West. Joseph Todorovitch has a place among the most technically proficient painters of the human figure working today, while Jeremy Mann and Vincent Xeus have excelled to similar degrees with provocative pieces that offer unsettling,
impressionistic distortions of their subjects. Whichever genre is under discussion, Maxwell Alexander Gallery hopes to hang only the best of the “new breed of fine art.”
Amid the participating artists are several who have shown there in the past, along with some fresh faces who will also be making future appearances at the gallery. “Our goal was to have tightly curated shows with the highest quality, and I think we’ve been extremely successful at keeping this vision alive,” says gallery owner Beau Alexander. “I’m excited for our clients to see what we have planned for the coming year.”The “One-Year Anniversary Show” at Maxwell Alexander Gallery opens December 14, with a reception beginning at 6 p.m. To see more, visit www.maxwellalexandergallery.com.
