Massachusetts-based artist Caleb Neelon is staging his first West Coast exhibition, "Caleb Neelon Is Working On It" at West Hollywood's Carmichael Gallery opening this weekend. The solo show includes several variations of his groupings of multi-colored Beech leaves against brushy backgrounds and marks, in Neelon's own words, "a new and very personal direction for me."

In conjunction with the show, the artist is also painting a mural on a nearby building (see below).
In addition to his prolific fine art work, he was the author and illustrator of the children's book, "Lilman Makes a Name for Himself," co-authored "Street World," and has a new book of his art coming out this year through Ginko called "Caleb Neelon's Book of Awesome."
