From the KPBS weekend arts preview:
Oolong Gallery opens a new exhibit, "Cool School (Trane of Thought)," on Saturday. It features the work of four artists: Amanda Farber, Mensah Bey, Ceres Madoo and Adam Rabinowitz. It's inspired by a movement in midcentury California art history that was dominated by white male artists — though these four artists add diverse, new voices.

Details: Opens with a reception from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 26. On view through Oct. 7. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Oolong Galley, 349 N. Coast Hwy 101, Solana Beach. Free.

From the gallery:
Oolong Gallery is pleased to announce an upcoming four person show at the gallery that flirts with Southern California art history while adding a new wave of diversity. The 20th century LA Cool School worked in a semi-urban abyss between the desert and coast and consisted of a mid-century style that combined both Pop and abstract expressionist influences alongside some homemade ingredients. This predominantly white male art movement produced immense work that has remained inspirational to a myriad of artists working today. Cool School (trane of thought) at Oolong Gallery brings together said new artists and their unique bodies of work, related to a degree but created independently from one another. Please join us August 26th from 6 to 9pm for an opening reception at the gallery and outdoor terrace level.
