Cornelius Projects returns. After a pandemic induced hibernation, the San Pedro gallery bounces back with an exhibition of paintings by Lida Lowrey (1934 – 2020). The show is curated by the artist Ron Linden. Cornelius Projects main, Laurie Steelink says, "Cornelius Projects would not exist without the support of Lida and her husband Austin. They generously welcomed me into their space and supported my desire to transform it into an arena for experimentation and community building. This exhibition of carefully chosen pieces represents just a fraction of Lida’s prolific output, and is Cornelius Projects' tribute to her." 

[From the Cornelius Projects press release] Artist Lida Lowrey was prolific, working in various paint and print media exploring both abstract and representational imagery with conceptual and technical vigor.  She was a dedicated follower of the visual arts, architecture, and design through the 20th and 21st centuries. Her work was knowingly referential and witty in subject matter and form. Lowrey, however, never actively sought gallery representation, and so, but for a handful of interspersed juried shows in California (Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Orange County Museum of Art, Angels Gate Cultural Center, Las Vegas Lied Museum) and Mexico (Biblioteca Pública de San Miguel de Allende), Lowrey was a well kept secret, admired and respected by the artists and intellectuals in the outlier arts community of San Pedro. She painted the last nine years in a studio/house she commissioned on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
