Griffith Moon is pleased to introduce Coleen Sterritt, a retrospective catalog published in collaboration with the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH). It showcases her work over a forty year period and includes an interview with artist Rochelle Botello and essays by Cooper Johnson, Carole Ann Klonarides, and Sue Spaid.

Sterritt’s hybrid sculpture evokes the interplay between nature, culture, and lived experience. Her source materials are pulled from everyday objects and elements. Plaster, tar, pinecones, fishing line, found furniture, and studio refuse are just some of the components she uses to construct and express her richly evocative formal language. Questioning the diverse possibilities of sculpture in both scale and form, her eccentric, abstract structures present strong polarities possessing a resonance at once familiar and obscure.

Her sculpture and drawings have been included in numerous exhibitions throughout the United States and in Spain, Kenya, and South Africa. Prominent public and private collections include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art, L.A., The Crocker Art Museum, Scripps College Collection, Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art, NM, Nestlé USA, and The Capitol Group Companies, Los Angeles, New York, & London.

Named a John Simon Guggenheim Fellow in 2016, Sterritt has received other awards and fellowships including: the National Endowment for the Arts (1986), the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program (1994), Art Matters, Inc. (1994), the J.Paul Getty Trust Fund for the Visual Arts /California Community Foundation (1996) and the COLA (City of Los Angeles) Individual Artist Fellowship in 2007.

Her teaching career began in 1983 and has included noted positions at California State University, Fullerton; Otis College of Art & Design; and The Claremont Graduate University. Since 1998 she has been a professor and faculty coordinator of the sculpture program at Long Beach City College.

Sterritt was born in Morris, Illinois and grew up in Chicago. She received a BFA from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 1976 and a MFA from Otis Art Institute (now Otis College of Art & Design), Los Angeles in 1979

Writers, illustrators, performers and poets share their stories, memories, struggles, embarrassing moments–and favorite recipes. “SisterWriterEaters is the literary equivalent of a heart-to-heart over a warm slice of coffee cake,” says LaZebnik.   Adds Brown, “We’re human, and we’re hungry.”  SisterWriterEaters is published by Griffith Moon.

In his touching and often hilarious theatrical memoir, Ron Fassler tells the real-life stories of how he saw over 200 Broadway plays and musicals between the ages of 12-16 for as little as $2 a ticket, self-funded by the profits from his Long Island paper route. In the days when 50-60 shows came to Broadway every season, Fassler sat in the last row of the balcony, then headed home to write reviews which he reveals for the first time so many decades later. Ron’s eyewitness account to some of the greatest shows and stars of the 1960s and 70s (with visits backstage to many of them), is furthered by conversing over the past four years with legendary actors, writers, producers, directors, and composers who were part of this remarkable time. Threading his own personal stories with theirs, the book features memories and insights from Jane Alexander, Sheldon Harnick, James Earl Jones, Stacy Keach, Nathan Lane, Hal Linden, John Lithgow, Bette Midler, Austin Pendleton, Harold Prince, Doris Roberts, Stephen Sondheim, and Mike Nichols among many others.
