The Ministry of Culture is pleased to present Art Salon Chinatown, a new program series of solo exhibitions and accompanying artist talks, organized by curators Sonia Mak and Shervin Shahbazi. The salon will take place at Realm, located in Los Angeles Chinatown’s historic Central Plaza, with the primary focus of showcasing contemporary Chinese American and Asian American artists. The series will begin on March 17, 2018 with an exhibition of works by Los Angeles-based artist Sandra Low. A reception for the artist will be held from 6:00-8:00pm. Sonia Mak will conduct a conversation with the artist at 5:00 pm. RSVP is required for the talk portion of the program as space is limited.
Sandra Low is currently working on a series she calls Cheesy Paintings. A dizzying melange of patterns and textures push and pull against one another in Cranes’ Idyll, the signature piece for the inaugural Art Salon Chinatown. Awash in a palette that evokes the flavor of a middle-class family restaurant’s cheap vintage, the deft brushwork in a broad array of mannered effects show off Low’s undeniable gift as a painter.
