Belton Gallery presents Doors of Perception, an exhibition featuring the works of five young artists, Nicole Belton, Gretchen Nuechter, Jameson Baldwin, Trevor Zank, and Carson Vandermade. This exhibition debuts contemporary and abstract work from young artists in Los Angeles. Doors of Perception references Aldous Huxley’s autobiographical volume The Doors of Perception, published in 1954.

Inspired by Aldous Huxley's groundbreaking book The Doors Of Perception, this exhibition explores the universal and ever-present urge for self-transcendence and the need for new perspectives. As Huxley wrote, "I wanted to be shaken out of the ruts of ordinary perception, to be shown for a few timeless hours the outer and inner world, not as they appear to an animal obsessed with survival or to a human being obsessed with words and notions, but as they are apprehended, directly and unconditionally, by Mind at Large".

This exhibition invites you to see the world through the eyes of these young artists, to experience the need for frequent chemical vacations from intolerable selfhood and surroundings. Through their works, they offer changes in consciousness that are more intrinsically valuable than mere sedation, dreaminess and release from inhibition.
