Conversation With… DJ Hall
Thursday, December 4
D. J. Hall is known especially for her paintings depicting beautiful, smiling women in luxurious suburban settings in Southern California. Beneath the images of perfection and happiness, there is however an undeniable sense of unease and gloom. Hall’s work has been exhibited in more than 80 museum and gallery exhibitions throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan, including solo museum exhibitions at the CA Heritage Museum (2012-13); the Palm Springs Art Museum (2008); and the Barnsdall Park Municipal Art Gallery (1986). She is represented in by Craig Krull Gallery in Los Angeles and her papers are archived in the Special Collections of the Charles E. Young Research Library at UCLA.
The museum is open for free from 5:00-9:00 p.m. the first Thursday of each month. Guests are encouraged to view the museum’s current exhibitions as well as participate in the Laguna Beach First Thursday Art Walk which takes place at area galleries from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
