MATTHEW BRANDT Sticky/Dusty/Wet

September 12 - December 28, 2014
MATTHEW BRANDT Sticky/Dusty/Wet was organized by the Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio and is Brandt’s first one-person museum exhibition. Brandt is a Los Angeles-based artist who received his BFA from Cooper Union and MFA from UCLA.

Amy Cutler

September 12 - December 28, 2014
An internationally collected artist, Amy Cutler creates small-scale narrative images in a variety of media.

Traditionally, the figures in Cutler’s worlds are women, stoically grappling with the vicissitudes of life.

This is the first showing of these works in an American museum.   …
