Samantha Wall, originally from Seoul, South Korea, is an artist working in Portland, Oregon. Wall immigrated to the United States as a child and comes from a multiracial background. Operating from within this framework, her drawings embody the experience of navigating transcultural identity. Her projects have been exhibited at the Hangaram Art Museum in the Seoul Arts Center, CUE Art Foundation in New York, and the Portland Art Museum, as well as exhibition spaces in New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Frankfurt. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including an MFA Grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, a Golden Spot Residency Award from Crow's Shadow Institute for the Arts, and a Hallie Ford Fellowship from the Ford Family Foundation.

Joshua Holzmann Photo

Joshua Holzmann, a native of Milwaukee, is an artist living and working in Los Angeles, CA. His primary mediums are paint and collage. His art practice employs paint as content and the complicated history tied to the medium through the lens of an African American male. As a conscientious millennial, the artist struggles with putting more objects into the world. To mitigate these concerns, Holzmann uses repurposed materials and collected items from his family and friends' daily consumption as the raw materials for his paintings.

Holzmann holds a BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA and an MFA from the University of California, Riverside. He has exhibited at the Riverside Art Museum, Harriet and Kern Gallery, Nan Rae Gallery at Woodbury University, Barbara and Art Culver Center for the Arts, Phyllis Gill Gallery at the University of California Riverside and ArtCenter DTLA. His work is in the permanent collection of the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. Holzmann is an Assistant Professor of Art at Art Center College of Design.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Talyor, and Ahmaud Arbery have once again brought attention to the pervasive racial violence, brutality and killing of black lives.

The LAVC Art Gallery stands in solidarity with the Black community. We believe art is a vehicle for self expression and communication, and we pledge to be an inclusive platform that celebrates and lifts up the voices of the Black community and also extend this promise to people of color. We will strive to meet the challenge of becoming a safe place where dialogue can lead to learning and growing. We are committed to disrupting systemic racism in order to advocate for racial justice and equity and will continue to seek out avenues where we can support this cause.

The LAVC Art Gallery invites you to join us in contributing to the Black Scholars Matter scholarship fund today.
