For the exhibition “Out Of Order,” the interior of Saltfineart, 1492 S. Coast Highway, will be transformed for the next month into the physics-defying vision of Mexican artist Aníbal Catalan.

Trained as an architect, Catalan is known for his ability to create work informed by the space in which it lives. Each installation is an on-sight improvisation where Catalan arrives with the tools and materials needed to create structures reminiscent of satellites in space.

Laguna Ink Spot and Gallery hosts “RETROspective: Works by Evie Yapelli,” which opened this past week and continues throughout May.

The gallery of tattoo artists at 412 N. Coast Highway will showcase the resident artist’s watercolor paintings as well as her most recent project, found object ceramics with enamel paint.

“I paint all of my watercolors using traditional tattoo flash techniques,” says Yapelli, who was formally apprenticed in Chicago, her hometown. “One of my mentors told me that whenever you’re not tattooing you should be painting, and it’s such great advice. I find that my artwork absolutely informs my tattooing, and it’s really allowed me to develop my own style.”
