TUE | OCT 7
Carol Es daringly explores her Jewish identity on canvas. Most vivid with language, Es often embroiders giant Hebrew letters onto her works as a way of binding her Judaism to her identity as an artist. In this exhibit, "She Dreamed She Remembered," the native Angeleno and self-taught painter focuses on memory, her childhood dreams and recollections as a way of reconciling her painful past to her present reality. Tue. 11 a.m.-6 p.m. (Tue.-Sat.). Opening reception, Oct. 11, 5- 8 p.m. Free. On display through Nov. 15. George Billis Gallery, 2716 S. La Cienega Blvd., Culver City. (310) 838-3685. http://www.georgebillis.com.
