Simon Lee Gallery announced today that it now represents Sarah Crowner in London and Hong Kong. Her work is currently featured in a group exhibition, “Faux Amis,” on view at Simon Lee’s London location until October 7. Crowner is represented by Casey Kaplan Gallery in New York.
The Brooklyn-based artist has also been included in group shows at the Jewish Museum, the Whitney Museum (including the 2010 Whitney Biennial), the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, WIELS Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels, the Institute of Contemporary Art Philadelphia, the Zacheta National Museum of Art in Warsaw, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Her work is held in the permanent collections of the latter two institutions.
Crowner, who earned her M.F.A. from Hunter College in New York, is known for her sewn-canvas and linen paintings and small, organically-modeled ceramic sculptures. She has a solo show in the works at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.
