“Space and Substance: Abstract Paintings by Craig Antrim and Ron Linden” is an exhibition featuring 50 paintings by two well-known South Bay artists with studios in San Pedro who work in an abstract painting mode. The exhibit opens on Wednesday, Oct. 23, and continues through Dec. 5 at the University Art Gallery at California State University, Dominguez Hills.

Craig Antrim integrates new techniques, color, and his love of symbols and shapes in his luminous gold abstract compositions. His understanding of philosophy, Jungian psychology, Joseph Campbell and art history influence him. Ron Linden’s subtle abstractions encompass repeated geometric forms and submerged lines and contours; his abstractions slowly reveal layers of monochromatic color and spare imagery. He uses industrial materials like resin, graphite, vinyl, gauze, and acrylic to create his rich surfaces.

Both artists will attend the opening reception on Oct. 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and participate in a question and answer session at 6 p.m. in the University Art Gallery.
