Luck of the Draw
bG Gallery, Molly Barnes and Valnes and Company are pleased to present “Luck of the Draw”, a solo exhibition by artist Stuart Rapeport. Curated by Sung-Hee Son.
“Luck of the Draw” is inspired by the almost forgotten history of the Santa Monica gambling ships of the 1930’s (Noir Afloat: Tony Cornero and the Notorious Gambling Ships of Southern California by Ernest Marquez, 2011), combined with a playful new concept to sail along the Los Angeles River. Imagine the poker cards and chips found in the bay. The portholes provide views from the ship as it sails along the way and how those objects could be included into local history.
