The Irvine Fine Arts Center announces the opening of LAND, its first exhibition of the new year. LAND runs Saturday, Jan. 20, through Saturday, March 10, and a free reception open to the public is Saturday, Jan. 20, 4-6 p.m. at the Center.

LAND focuses on works that seek to understand, highlight and critique our connection to land – from environmental issues to cultivation, development and mapping – and traces the change in that relationship from the past to the present and into the future. The multidisciplinary exhibit includes paintings and prints by Virginia Katz; drawings by Jennifer Celio and Christine Weir; paintings and a site-specific sculptural installation by Christine Nguyen; a live garden project by Michael Nannery and Kiyomi Fukui; and an immersive paper, video and sound installation by Chris Natrop.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. Exhibition, opening reception and parking are free. The Irvine Fine Arts Center is located inside Heritage Community Park at 14321 Yale Ave. For more information, visit irvinefinearts.org or call 949-724-6880.
