Signals Art Exhibition Promotes Connection

Art gallery

The University of La Verne Harris Gallery is hosting a gallery talk Monday, March 18 starting at 1:15 p.m. on its current group exhibition – Signals, which runs through March 21. 

This exhibition features paintings by Nick Aguayo, Greg Ito, Dion Johnson, Helen Lundeberg, Christine Nguyen, Annabel Osberg, and Kristopher Raos. These include paintings of different shapes and sizes that range from figurative representation to color-focused abstraction, graphic precision to expressive gesture, up-beat tempo to calm meditation, and impressive scale to nuanced detail.  

Works included in this show may allude to signs, symbols, or dreams and emphasize that art is participatory, according to Dion Johnson, university director of art galleries and distinguished artist. Each piece transmits layers of meaning from its painted surface to the viewers’ optic receptors – these messages and sensations become part of a lively visual conversation where gallery visitors are invited to look, interact, and discover, he adds.  

The Harris Gallery is across from the Abraham Campus Center at 2000 Second Street on the La Verne campus. Gallery hours are Monday – Thursday 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. or by appointment. Admission is free. Visit for details on current and upcoming shows.
