Elaine Cohen began this collage series in 2006, inspired by years of walking the Chinatowns of San Francisco and New York City, marveling at the juxtapositions of junk and treasure, dried chicken feet and pearls, sweatshops and food palaces, tradition and modernity. She wrote about jazz and new music for more than 25 years, co-authoring a biography of the Los Angeles bassist Red Callender, published by Quartet Books of London. Five works will be displayed as the Prelude exhibition, which begins on 2/6.

** There will be a reception following this event.
