Westmont Professor at LACMA

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).Inside%20Out.jpg

“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.”Oblation.jpg

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.
