Walk-ins welcome, appointments encouraged.

Shulamit Nazarian is pleased to present Lacuna, a series of new sculptures by Los Angeles-based Fay Ray. This will be the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery.


Lacuna continues the artist’s exploration of sculpture that exists between the terrestrial and the intangible. Through a vocabulary of symbols, the artist utilizes industrial materials to explore a wide range of references––from desert culture, to her familial and religious roots––while employing abstraction to transcend their material origins. Through the use of mass, scale, and medium, Ray’s suspended sculptures elicit the body as they react to the conditions of their environment, causing them to shift, enlarge, or disappear in the space. Slipping between presence and absence, this new series not only signifies a body that isn’t seen, but one that is endlessly contracting and expanding.

Shulamit Nazarian is pleased to present By the rivers, I stood and stared into the Sun, a solo exhibition by Star Montana.

Born and raised in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East Los Angeles, Montana’s photographic practice reflects her family history, as well as the varied physical and cultural landscape of Boyle Heights and city of El Paso. Through newly authored images and the repurposing of her family’s archive of personal photos, Montana explores fragmented histories, reimagining lost time as part of the continuous cycle of life.
