134 Yale Ave.
“The Art of the Rybacki Brothers” by Nicholas Rybacki and Stephen Rybacki with guest Artists paPa and Florencia Abergel.
Nicholas Rybacki is a Southern California born independent artist. His work centers on themes of spirituality, states of consciousness and mythos. Describing his work as ‘Hybridism’, he blends digital art and painting into one, creating work that is ever-changing and growing, he is determined to push the boundaries of imagination.
Stephen Rybacki was raised in Rancho Cucamonga CA, and currently resides in La Verne. His work focuses on the delicate texture and colors of rusted objects, and how to isolate the beauty of a simple rusted object with a canvas base, bringing out the oxidized bright oranges and organic broken metal to create a composition.

Abandoned Fabric Art by Sumi Foley
A quote from the artist: “I love fabric. As a child of 4 or 5 years old, I would often spend the night at my Grandmother’s house. She had boxes of kimono scraps. I enjoyed spending my time touching and
gazing at the fabric. At the same time my Grandmother showed me the art of sewing. Years later, when she was about to throw a big bag of old kimono fabric in the trash, I asked her to give me that fabric because I could not bear the thought of it being in the trash. Since that moment more than 25 years ago, I have devoted my life to making my Abandoned Fabric art.”

Roland Reiss: “Unapologetic Flowers and Small Stories” will focus on the work of acclaimed Los Angeles artist Roland Reiss who devoted much of his teaching career to the Claremont community. On view will be selections from two of Reiss’s best-known bodies of work: the “miniatures,” sculptural tableaux suggesting human dramas in familiar settings (1970s-90s), and recent floral paintings that vastly expand the expressive potential of one of the most conventional subjects in the history of painting. The exhibition will remain on view through July 8.

All structures can be reduced to lines: lines of sight, lines of demarcation, and lines of authority. These fibers establish strength in their formation but reveal vulnerabilities when given a good firm tug. So, who will hold the thread? Who will pursue the line of questioning that dismantles the narrative orthodoxy? Who will pull the rug out from under obsolete institutions? And what happens next? Can the fabric be unraveled in such a way that the threads might be repurposed in building the new architecture, in weaving a more just future history, a more permeable mind? Or is it better to return to the spinning wheel and start anew?
There will be fear, fear of the imminent nakedness. These garments have provided reliable insulation, but they’ve also obscured and divided. It can be scary to embrace atrophy and deconstruction as an inevitable part of rebirth and renewal. It’s also sometimes good to hang onto a well-worn t-shirt, to wear it until it falls apart at the seams. What’s important is to exist in a constant state of consideration. We must look at ourselves in the mirror, both individually and collectively, and have the courage to face both the nakedness and the potential.
