Sarah Cromarty in Artillery 9.26.18

Sarah Cromarty
 
by Annabel Osberg
“WISHFUL THINKIN’,” the title of Sarah Cromarty‘s show at Klowden Mann, indicates its tenor of hope against hope.

Through these works, Cromarty self-consciously elaborates her own imaginary world of lush green jungles and sparkles, positing painters as mythologizers and implicitly underscoring her ...

La Reina de Los Ángeles
SEPTEMBER 17, 2018 – JANUARY 13, 2019

Without the Los Angeles River, there would quite simply be no Los Angeles. While the precise geography is unknown, historians have estimated it’s changed course at least nine times in the first half of the nineteenth century alone.
