Home Sweet Home

Artists interpret the humble abode in one of LA’s new art collectives

by Mike Gigliotti and Jon Cournoyer

Tucked away in LA’s fascinating enclave of Highland Park is THIS, an up-and-coming gallery that has been steadily making a name for itself. This month features Home Sweet Home, a six-day exhibit showcasing the work of five young artists riffing on the idea of “home” and the domestic sphere.

The varied personalities of the artists can be detected through the featured works on display that run the gamut from photography, to sketches, to watercolors. From a collection of creatives which include art professor Jon Cournoyer, madball sketch artist Michael Gigliotti, painter and musician Hannah Hooper, artist Vanessa Prager (whose solo work we have previously featured on Cool Hunting), and photographer Annie Thornton; each artist takes an interpretive swing at the concept of what “home sweet home” means to them.

The opening reception for Home Sweet Home is scheduled for 7p.m. on 9 September 2010 and will run through 15 September 2010 at LA’s THIS gallery.
