Susan Savage’s Work Hits Bigtime
Westmont’s associate professor of art Susan Savage is showing her paintings
at the Los Angeles
County Museum of Art‘s Art Rental and Sales Gallery through
October 26. Savage, a UCSB grad, likes to focus her work on objects
from everyday life, such as the silver bowl featured in “Inside
Out” (top) and “Oblation” (bottom).
“I attempt to portray something that isn’t visibly in place,”
she says, “but can become evident if one takes the time to ponder
the relationships that are presented. In this context, the vessel
stands as a witness to something larger than its temporary and
finite physical form.”
The ARSG is located on the lower level of the Leo S. Bing Center
at LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Blvd. The gallery is open Tuesday,
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
