LA Artcore’s “Connections to the Natural World” ft. Sarah Kriehn, Monica Aissa Martinez, Carolyn Lavender, and Mary Shindell

Are you in LA this weekend and looking for something to do? We suggest checking out the last weekend of “Connections to the Natural World” exhibit at the LA Artcore Brewery Annex. This collection features the personal responses to nature through various media of seven unique artists, four of those artists being past SR Contributors. Sarah Kriehn, a printmaker, uses nature as a visual framework for intuitive play. Monica Aissa Martinez works to experience and understand nature through human anatomy in her intricately rendered paintings. Carolyn Lavender explores natural preservation while portraying the fake and the real of flora and fauna in detailed graphite drawings. Mary Shindell reframes nature’s geometry and reorganizes its special relationships in her large-scale installations.

This collection is only on view until January 30th during normal gallery hours (12-5 pm Thursday- Sunday). Be sure to admire these artists’ brilliant work in SR. Sarah’s paintings were featured in Issue 10, Monica’s drawings in Issue 9, Carolyn’s drawings in Issue 9, and Mary’s work in Issue 11.

ArtFarm Collective’s inaugural event, “Nurturing the Landscape,” uses a raw interior environment, analogous to our oft-referred-to desert environment, as the backdrop for work by local artists who have had limited opportunities to exhibit in the Phoenix area but whose work is recognized nationally and internationally.

Featuring the work of Melinda Bergman, Christopher Jagmin, Mimi Jardine, Bobo Johns, Amy Manning, John Nelson, Christina You-Sun Park, Adria Pecora, Patricia Sannit, and Erin V. Sotak
