Canzani Center Gallery (map it)

Widely recognized as one of the most significant and influential founders of the Los Angeles punk aesthetic, artist and designer Gary Panter has wielded his “punk, nuclear, hillbilly” sensibility in the art world since the late 1970s. Using his characteristic jagged line and raw brushstroke, he presents chaotic, image-strewn landscapes as well as more axiomatic works that center on film archetypes.

Perhaps best known for his Jimbo graphic novels, Panter has won numerous awards, including three Emmys for his production design on Pee-Wee's Playhouse and the Chrysler Award for Design Excellence.

Also on view in the Canzani Center Gallery from Sept. 5–Oct. 4 Martha Colburn's Camera, Lights, Charge, Pop, Kirk Hayes' Rule by Fear, Jeff Smith's RASL, and Loud Flash: British Punk on Paper .

Gallery Hours: Monday, closed; Tuesday–Friday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday, noon–5 p.m.
