Stuart Regen, a prominent art dealer and the executive producer of the highly successful film "Leaving Las Vegas," has died. He was 39. Regen owned the Regen Projects gallery in West Hollywood. He died Tuesday night at USC/Kenneth Norris Jr. Cancer Center and Hospital of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, his wife, Shaun Caley Regen, said Wednesday. Although art was his field, Regen became interested in motion pictures "just by moving to Hollywood," his wife said.

Regen Projects, the prominent West Hollywood art gallery founded in 1989, is moving to a new location in Hollywood, on Santa Monica Boulevard just east of Highland Avenue. The official opening isn't scheduled until Sept. 22, but the gallery has provided a rendering of the design for the new facility by L.A.-based architect Michael Maltzan. The new Regen Projects, currently under construction, is expected to have 20,000 square feet of space. The structure will allow for "larger-scale exhibitions," according to the gallery, and will also feature an outdoor sculpture deck.  The new space isn't being constructed from scratch.

When the late Nicholas Wilder left Los Angeles for New York in early 1980, the decision to move seemed utterly perverse.

During some four decades as an increasingly major center for contemporary art, Los Angeles has had its share of talented dealers. Their galleries have provided essential public platforms for artists and their work. This week, the city lost one of the most gifted when Stuart Regen succumbed to the ravages of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Regen was barely 39, but in slightly more than eight years' time his West Hollywood gallery had assumed a critical position in L.A.'s burgeoning art-ecology.

Since 1982, in sequential series of brash and exuberant paintings typically made on mahogany panels, Lari Pittman has shaken up countless received ideas within contemporary artistic discourse. Now, at 44, the Los Angeles-based artist has arguably become the most significant American painter of his generation. On June 23, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will open a mid-career survey exhibition of Pittman's work, featuring about 40 major paintings and culminating with the imposing, five-panel tour de force shown in November at Stuart Regen Projects.

Trumps chef Michael Roberts gave up his Sunday night bridge game and closed the restaurant to prepare lacquered honey duck, spinach and polenta for friends of the late, legendary art dealer Nicholas Wilder. Asher-Faure Gallery's Patricia Faure organized the evening as a Wilder tribute and fund-raiser for a newly established Nicholas Wilder Center at AIDS Project Los Angeles, to begin construction this summer. Wilder ran his widely known and respected gallery in Los Angeles from 1965 to 1980.

Like nearly every German artist of the past 20 years, Cologne-based Rosemarie Trockel is very much a child of Joseph Beuys. The subject of an exhibition at the Stuart Regen Gallery in West Hollywood, Trockel is frequently described as feminist, largely because she executed a series of knitted "paintings" (knitting, of course, is widely regarded as women's work). She's also made art involving kitchen utensils, perfume bottles and haircuts, so it's easy to pigeonhole her as feminist.

An inaugural exhibit of a new gallery features Lawrence Weiner who helped spearhead the late '60s conceptual art movement with his fragments of text painted on walls. Here, the phrase "assuming the position" is enclosed in a handsome graphic logo of black lines and silver strips. The design and words are repeated on each gallery wall with opposing phrases, such as put together and spread apart or tossed aside and carried along printed above and below.

An L.A. art crowd partied at the Museum of Contemporary Art on Wednesday night at an opening reception for "Cy Twombly: A Retrospective." The comprehensive survey of the works of the American abstract painter--most recognizable for his gray and white "blackboard" paintings--runs through June 25.

Los Angeles artist Liz Larner says that "sculpture is about expanding where a surface begins or stops or changes." An exhibition of her work on view at the Stuart Regen Gallery in West Hollywood suggests that she's interested in closing the gap existing between viewer and art object because she positions her work in that very space. With roots in conceptual and minimal art, her work is about penetrating surfaces, getting into and under them, and she can be wickedly clever in pursuit of that aim.
