Rohrer hosts Halley exhibition Rohrer Fine Art, 346 North Coast Highway, will present an exhibition of new work by painter Peter Halley alongside aluminum furniture by mid-century master Warren McArthur. The exhibition opens with an artist reception from 5 to 7 p.m. July 14, and runs through Aug. 12. Peter Halley's paintings consist of brightly-colored blocks of color embedded among rectangles and squares of contrasting colors, which he calls prisons or cells. Halley has painted in this post-minimalist style since the 1980s when he and a group of his contemporaries, dubbed Neo-Geo, began painting pure geometric forms reacting against and referencing earlier generations.
