Here is a list of Santa Clarita arts-related events for Mar. 1 – 3:
Mar. 1: A Conversation with Artist Larry Hurst at College of the Canyons
at 2:00 p.m.

College of the Canyons is hosting a special conversation with Larry Hurst, Los Angeles-based artist and former College of the Canyons Gallery Director, whose work is currently on display in the art gallery.

The one-person exhibition brings together works from three areas of Hurst’s aesthetic investigations: his precise and elegant geometric abstract paintings; his nuanced and poetic collage; and his intensively hand-crafted, often humorous sculptures (which Hurst attributes to his alter-ego, Guy Leadbetter).
