CRG Gallery is pleased to announce our next exhibition will be recent work by Russell Crotty. For his first solo exhibition with CRG Gallery, the Los Angeles artist will exhibit a selection of drawings, books and sculptures of astronomical phenomena. Crotty, who is well known for his works on paper and books filled with drawings of the heavens, will exhibit three-dimensional works for the first time. These globe-drawings, M 13 Globular Cluster in Hercules and The Milky Way (Northern Hemisphere), are Lucite spheres measuring two and three feet in diameter, covered with archival paper, and suspended from the ceiling. In addition, the artist will exhibit a series of four foot square drawings of globular clusters, the Hale Bopp Comet, and the Milky Way as well as a series of new books including, Mysterious Travelers, which opens to 10 feet, his largest book to date. Crotty’s visual language is born of a simple poetry. His night observations high in the hills of Malibu both with the naked eye and a powerful telescope are first meticulously transferred to journals and then by day to paper, books and recently globes. His art is a personal and reverential interpretation of science. There will be a reception for the artist Saturday, April 1, 6 – 8 PM. Visual material is available upon request. Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 11 – 6 PM For further information please contact: Carla Chammas, Richard Desroche or Glenn McMillan Next Exhibition: Group exhibition curated by Jessica Brosnon – May 13 – June 17, 2000.
