ABOUT TOBEY C. MOSS GALLERY
The Tobey C. Moss Gallery began in 1978 with a listing of "Selected Prints". Since then, the direction in the gallery has broadened to include art in all media, especially works originating in southern California between the 1920s and the 1960s: post-surrealism, abstract classicism, minimalism, hard-edge, assemblage, the Federal Arts Project and printmakers launched in lithography with Lynton Kistler during the '30s-'50s and the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in the 1960s and beyond. Past exhibitions have included works from Clinton Adams, Werner Drewes, Leonard Edmondson, Jules Engel, Lorser Feitelson, Ynez Johnston Helen Lundeberg, Peter Shire and Emerson Woelffer, among others.
