Gwynn Murrill: Animal Nature:

Saturday, May 21–Sunday, July 31, 2022

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 21, 2022 • 4–7 PM

Gwynn Murrill's elegant sculptures of animals strike a balance between abstraction and realism. This retrospective exhibition features early works from the 1970s carved from wood, combined with more recent work—including sculptures that merge animal and human forms—made in bronze, wood, marble, and clay. Inspired in part by the contours of the Santa Monica Mountains where Murrill has made her home for several decades, her smooth, streamlined forms capture the essence and vitality of the often elusive creatures Murrill sculpts.
