Brian Moss works on his mural, “Town and Country,” for the Freewall exhibit that will be on display through April 10.

Ten Los Angeles-based artists are displaying their work directly on the wall of the W. Keith and Janet Kellogg University Art Gallery now through April 10.

Barbara Berk, JonMarc Edwards, Brian Moss, Stas Orlovski, Alexandra Grant, Mara Lonner, Aaron Noble, Steve Roden, Jay Stuckey and Kim Schoenstadt are part of the exhibit, ?Freewall,? which features temporary paintings, drawings and mixed-media created on the gallery walls.

Rather than bringing finished paintings and objects to the gallery, artists each selected a wall and spent two to three weeks developing their artwork on site. At the end of the exhibition, all artwork will be sanded off and the walls will be re-painted.

?The idea behind Freewall was to have the artists leave the privacy of their studio behind as well as the notion of art as an object or commodity,? said Jody Zellen, assistant professor of Art and exhibit curator.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, call the W. Keith and Janet Kellogg University Art Gallery at (909) 869-4302.
