“Thunder in Our Hearts” is a small-works show featuring the work of Southern California artists working at the intersection of sound, video, performance, and installation. Taking its title from “Running up that Hill” by Kate Bush, the exhibition focuses on tiny works with large impact, small gestures, intimacy, coldness, brief connections, lights, flickers, and tones. Participating artists include: Robert Andrade, Banrei, Brian Benfer, Cindy Santos Bravo, Einar & Jamex de la Torre, Don Edler, Dave Ghilarducci, Brian Goeltzenleuchter, Marina Grize, Gordon Holden, Debby & Larry Kline, Davin Kyle Knight, Alex Kohnke, Angele Lebert, Nicholas Lesley, Omar Lopex, Justin Manor, Carolina Montejo, Margaret Noble, Sean Noyce, Don Porcella, Jason Sherry, Ali Silverstein, Suzanne Thorpe, Katya Usvitsky, and Perry Vasquez.
