The Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena is a highly regarded, community-based contemporary arts center that offers innovative approaches to creating, exploring, and presenting the visual arts. Deeply committed to public access, education, and outreach programs, the Armory designs its exhibition and education programs to work together to offer innovative experiences for all visitors.
The grant will help support the solo exhibition Sara Kathryn Arledge: Serene for the Moment. Pasadena-based Arledge was an under-recognized visual artist who was also an innovator in mid-20th century experimental cinema. As a filmmaker, Arledge created new visual experiences such as environmental light shows of abstract, hand-painted slide transparencies. She was also a prolific painter whose psychedelic abstractions feature vivid color and organic shapes. The funded exhibition will be on view from January 27, 2019 through May 19, 2019.
