Celebrate Community and Nationality through MOAH’s Spring Exhibits

Lancaster, CA. April 24, 2014 - The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) is proud to present several shows currently on display through June 8 celebrating community and nationality. Each exhibit is particularly relevant as many of the artists are connected to the Antelope Valley community while still others celebrate nationality.

MOAH’s third floor rooftop and Jewel Box feature sculptures by internationally renowned artist Brad Howe. Mr. Howe is known in the Valley as the artist of the installation soon-to-be-featured in Lancaster’s new state-of-the-art High Desert Regional Health Center (previously known as the Multi-Ambulatory Care Center or MACC). His rooftop sculptures represent a clean slate – a blank canvas where the artist acts as the solo explorer of his own ideas, setting out to translate his thoughts into pure form. A portion of the actual artwork to be installed in the Health Center is on display in the entry atrium with an invitation to the public to name the piece (Courtesy of Los Angeles County Arts Commission).

Also on display are Andrew Frieder’s playful mixed-media pieces. Andrew Frieder (1959-2014) was one of the Antelope Valley’s most prolific artists. Presenting in his unique and compelling visual language, his drawings and paintings focus on his personal mythology, literally stitched together from his life experiences. The exhibit serves as a celebration of his life.
In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage month, Chinese born Yi Kai’s Paintings and Drawings are shown in the East, South and Wells Fargo Galleries. Yi Kai made his way from Beijing to San Francisco and ultimately Minneapolis where he began a new way of life – sworn in as a U.S. Citizen eight years later. His work is noted for recording in pen, ink and watercolor, the contrasts and growing similarities between east and west.

The aforementioned exhibits will be on display through June 8. The Lancaster Museum of Art & History (MOAH) is located at 665 W. Lancaster BLVD in Lancaster, CA. Regular Museum hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, with extended hours until 8 p.m. on Thursday. The Museum is closed on Monday and Holidays. Additional information and donation support opportunities are available on MOAH’s website, lancastermoah.org.
