~ GALLERY 3 ~
We are honored to present Los Angeles artist, Elizabeth McGrath’s new exhibition, “Dark Howl,” on Saturday, November 5th from 7-11pm. McGrath will be transforming Gallery 3 into her own wonderland of dark whimsy with her delightfully odd creatures variously adorned with jeweled eyes, crystal blood drops and gold trim. Some have miniature diorama windows in which you will find tiny dreamlands filled with cupcakes, the Grim Reaper, Unicorns and more. The “Star” of the show is her three headed deer covered in thousands of Swarovski Crystals.
Los Angeles-born self taught artist Elizabeth McGrath has always had an eye for the strange beauty in the grotesqueries of life; this appreciation is nowhere more evident than in her work. Inspired by the relationship between the natural world and the detritus of consumer culture, she brings forth a new cavalcade of creatures from the darker corners of the streets, the city, the imagination. It is this melancholy interaction between man-made status symbols and suffering specimens of nature that make up her intricate body of work.
