Upcoming: Rosson Crow @ Musée Régional d’Art Contemporain Languedoc-Roussillon

Starting Saturday (June 28th) in France, in the heart of Languedoc-Roussillon in the town of Sérignan, the Regional Museum of Contemporary Art will be opening a show from Rosson Crow (featured). Showing through November 2nd, the exhibition will feature the young painter’s hallucinatory abstractions of decadent interior spaces, oftentimes embellished with elements more often seen in urban settings.

Openings: Rosson Crow – “BALLYHOO HULLABALOO HABOOB” @ Honor Fraser

Over the weekend, the Honor Fraser Gallery hosted the opening for BALLYHOO HULLABALOO HABOOB, Rosson Crow’s (featured) second solo at the Los Angeles showspace. The new body of work marks a departure from her signature imagery of decadent interiors from the past rendered with colorful urban references (last seen in 2010 here and here), and sees the LA-based painter move her narrative towards a looser and more abstract look at scenes of American growth and decline, all with a more muted palette. More photos taken […]

Openings: Rosson Crow – “Myth of the American Motorcycle” @ CAC

It seems that it paid off as this series is a great match for “RoCrow’s” nostalgic abstraction on familiar settings that “never-was”. Check out this great show after […]
