Christopher Grimes Gallery To Host Opening Reception Saturday Night:

Christopher Grimes Gallery will host an opening reception this Saturday night from 6 pm to 8 pm for a new exhibition of paintings by Sharon Ellis and Dane Mitchell. The exhibition will run through May 3.

Eight years have passed since Ellis’ last exhibition in Los Angeles.

In this long-anticipated show, Ellis applies her singular vision to the representation of timeless landscapes.

Working within the tradition of Romanticism and with a tangential relationship to such early modernists as Agnes Pelton and Charles Burchfield, Ellis’ paintings highlight the interplay between a visible world and an equally present, invisible one.

Ellis lives and works in Los Angeles. Her work was included in the group exhibitions Eden’s Edge: Art in L.A. at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles and POPulence, curated by David Pagel, which traveled throughout the United States.

The Long Beach Museum of Art organized a 10-year survey of Ellis’ work in 2002 entitled “Evocations,” which traveled to the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati and San Jose Museum of Art. Ellis was also included in Flower Power at Le Consortium, Centre d’art contemporain in Lille, France.

The South Gallery will feature a new installation of sculpture and photographs by Dane Mitchell.

Mitchell’s practice is concerned with manifesting the physical properties of the incorporeal. Through the use of scent, spells and shamans, his work channels invisible forces into concrete forms, coupling spiritual tendencies with minimalism and conceptualism.

Mitchell lives and works in Auckland. He has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand (2012) and Govett Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth, New Zealand (2011).

His work has been included in exhibitions worldwide such as the Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool, UK (2012); Gwangju Biennale, Gwangju, South Korea (2012); and Busan Biennale, Busan, South Korea (2010).

Christopher Grimes Gallery is located at 916 Colorado Avenue, Santa Monica.
