Most of the art venues in West Adams start their seasons tonight, as does the post-humanist outpost The Nook Gallery — relatively nearby to the south on N. La Brea Avenue in Inglewood. They get started early, with the aptly named group show, “The Regenerates.” After that, The Landing on Jefferson has abstract architecture-inflected paintings by Jonathan Ryan; Lowell Ryan Projects shows inventive, retooled sartorial constructions by Erin Trefry; Chimento Contemporary welcomes anticipated shows from Pamela Smith Hudson and April Bey; Erin Morrison riffs on the aesthetics of currency at OCHI Projects, and Josh Hagler and Maja Ruznic infuse Big Pictures L.A. with a soft sense of sensual madness and magic.
