Under the ambient glow of the orange moon and the smoke in the air from the SoCal fires, Roberts & Tilton opened the two man show by Ed Templeton and Matt Leines to an eager, thriving crowd. Shoulder to shoulder in the new space, wide support for the artists was clear. There is a broad offering of art that ranges from photography to mixed media to sculpture and, of course, Leines’ usual works on paper. Both artists delivered exceptional works that were appreciated by a noticeably diverse group. Stand-out pieces by Templeton included large sculputures and Leines continued to explore his voice with cut-out forms. Books by both artists are available through the gallery website.
