Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present WET PAINT 2: Nine Young LA Artists, a one week exhibition featuring recently created works by talented local artists. These artists — Michael Carter, Patricia Fernandez, Matthias Merkel Hess, Nicole Miller, Jesse Mockrin, Joshua Nathanson, Sean Sullivan, Brendan Threadgill and Cody Trepte–will present work in a range of media include video, drawing, photography, sculpture and painting. The process of selection began immediately following last year’s inaugural edition of WET Paint, and during the course of the last year, over two hundred and fifty artists were considered.

WET PAINT 2 will be on view with extended hours (11 to 9), from Sunday, August 15 through Saturday, August 21, 2010 with the opening reception on Sunday, August 15, between 6 and 9. The exhibition may also be viewed by appointment from Monday, August 9, through Saturday, August 14. There will be two artist talks each night during the run of the show.
