Sarah Crowner’s first U.S. solo exhibition, Beetle in the Leaves, opened at Mass MOCA on April 16 and will continue through the summer. Mass MOCA describes, "...This installation invites viewers to engage directly—face to face, visually, and spatially—with the works, which in turn operate like performers on the raised stage, enveloping the viewer in the scene. The hard, glossy nature of the tiles and the hard edges of their uniform grid structure provide counterpoints to the softly textured canvas and curvilinear forms of Crowner’s paintings."
