For three years, Sarah Hurwitz has filled Eye Lounge, 419 East Roosevelt Street, with everything we have ever wanted to own. The local artist’s paintings and mixed-media installations have turned the gallery into an interactive meat shop, a science lab, a jungle, and a gem show, and with her last exhibition as a member of the gallery she’ll make us drool all over again.
“Everything I have ever wanted to own” is a collection of illustrations of items coveted by the Phoenix-based artist that will open on Friday, February 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. and be on view through Art Detour 25, Saturday and Sunday, March 2 and 3. Hurwitz will be on hand to discuss the things she’d like to own, including lawn gnomes, wish bones, parrots, and skeleton keys.
