It’s all about the animals at the current LGAP exhibit, and curator Laura Von Rosk took on the challenge of balancing the diverse work of 15 different artists into a coherent Noah’s Ark-like show at the cozy Courthouse Gallery. But she did an excellent job, and it’s well worth your time to dash up to see it. But hurry, as the exhibit’s last day is Friday, August 14.
The first pieces to grab hold of me were a pair of long, horizontal collages by Reet Das. Gorgeous in color and detail, the matching 80″-long works combine anatomical cross-sections with skulls, birds, rats, maps and more, conjuring a kind of fauna timeline.
