Our guests this morning are gallerist Peggy Zask and curator Mat Gleason and they are going to give us the lowdown on Fresh, The Event! taking place at South Bay Contemporary on December 6 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Peggy Zask taught Art Education at Mira Costa High School for 20 years. She went on to direct a nonprofit art museum during the 1990s and ran Zask Gallery, a for-profit art gallery in the South Bay for the last seven years. Peggy has close relationships with many artists, art patrons, museum directors, curators and educators in the South Bay, and she has shown work by artists from around the world.
Mat Gleason was invited to curate the Fresh exhibition because he insists art be authentic and expressive - in other words, fresh! He is a noted art writer, critic and gallerist. Starting in 1992, he published the Coagula Art Journal and currently operates Coagula Curatorial in Chinatown. He has juried and curated many art exhibitions and knows how to evaluate the work.
Fresh, 2014 is a contemporary art show of new work by dozens of artists. Most of the artists are from Los Angeles and the South Bay, but some come from as far east as New York and as far south as Mississippi. The show’s curator selected ninety-seven artists for the show. The only restriction on entries was that the art be created in 2014. After jurying the show, Mat Gleason said: "The goal was to make a WILD show, not a safe, straight art exhibit. The opening will be epic."

In 1992 Mat Gleason founded and continues to publish Coagula Art Journal, described as the “National Enquirer of the Art World” by the New York Observer. The New York Times described Mat Gleason as a famously provocative Los Angeles art critic, while the L.A. Weekly once referred to him as a cranky, self-exiled gossipmonger. A consummate critic, he has written for numerous publications, from Modern Painters to the Lollapalooza Concert Tour’s Art Program. The early issues of Coagula were anthologized in the book MOST ART SUCKS (Smart Art Press, 1998). In his 1999 review of the book, David Bowie raved: “Gleason clobbers the closed door snobbishness that has increasingly distanced the public from the rarefied air of the art world.” Mat Gleason is a regular guest on the Ovation TV Network and has appeared alongside artists John Baldessari, Richard Tuttle, and Agnes Martin in the art world documentary Art City: Simplicity. Gleason is a featured contributor to the Huffington Post’s Arts pagesince its 2012 debut.
This week on the Alex Schaefer Hour, LIVE at 1pm PDT on coagula.com, I'm going to relax in the comfort of home and talk about the events of the past few days. It's been an adventure to say the least. My hats off to Henry David Thoreau and I hope it awakens America into another wave of active protest.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKUHw5YLY4g
