Deciduous Gods: Sculpture by W.S. Milner
Cornelius Projects
San Pedro
June 9th - July 28th, 2018

At a loose end in San Pedro on Satuday? Then you'll do way worse than to pop along to Cornelius Projects for the opening reception of WS Milner's Decdious Gods. The reception runs from 6–9 PM.

W.S. Milner’s scultpures and other objects have a patina evocative of once buried ceremonial relics. She says, “Perhaps it was recently unearthed in a sub-basement of a forgotten temple or church, and represents an icon from some unknown cult,” or. “Maybe it was found in a midden pile, or on an altar of sacrifices.” These Deciduous Gods are romantic, playful, and imbued with a visionary intelligence; and, like all gods, they represent both aspects of the divine, the light and dark, brave and fearful, barren and lush.

San Pedro and Angels Gate studio artist Milner is a multi-disciplinarian who’s worked as a copy editor, theater costume and set designer, scenic artist, television art director, exhibition designer, and writer. In 2001 Warner Books published her novel, In Translation, which chronicles the parallel journey of two travelers set eight hundred years apart. Milner’s fascination with medieval art, mythology, and curiosities continue to be the subject of her stories as well as inspiration for her art. She is a firm believer in the importance of the re-telling and re-interpretation of ancient stories, as they are teachings from the past for the present and the future.

Following the opening reception on Saturday, June 9 from 6–9 PM, Cornelius Projects will be open Friday through Sunday from noon to 5 PM. A red flag flies outside our door when we are open. Appointments can also be made to view the exhibition by calling (310) 266-9216.
