After her last show of paintings accompanying the release of the critically acclaimed Bough Down, Karen Green returns for her sixth solo exhibition at SPACE since 2009.
With the new work Green is back to collage and mixed media on paper, and with her usual delicacy and meticulousness she creates lush tapestries - some reminiscent of vibrant, exotic textiles, while others look like illuminated manuscripts, inhabited by characters from fractured fairy tales.
This work will thrill Green's loyal fans and collectors, and will doubtless win over new ones, as she continues to prove herself an entrancing storyteller in both image and prose. The work will be in view through April 26th.

Ellie Kim, an artist and custom dress designer from LA, will show you how to create one of kind fashions with your closet castaways. Bring in your boyfriend’s or dad's big shirts or pants, your old t-shirts and out of fashion clothing, and update them by learning how to hand stitch, drape, and add unique touches. A fun workshop where you need no previous skills. (Scissors, needles, thread, and some notions and trims provided, bring clothing and accessories to upcycle and other special items you want to add.)
From Dale Chihuly’s flowers to Monet’s Garden, preschoolers will be exposed to different artists and materials as they create their own nature inspired artworks. Children will be introduced to a variety of skills and materials including watercolors, clay, and mixed media arts.
Clay is a wonderful and forgiving tactile medium. Its three dimensional nature encourages us to think about structure, shapes, and forms. We will explore a variety of building techniques while learning to think about ideas and adapt to change along the way. No prior clay or ceramics experience is required. More challenging work will be assigned to students with previous experience. Pieces will be glazed and fired.
