Liz Harvey works in sculpture, installation and performance. Her work has been shown since 1993 in galleries, museums, and alternative spaces. Harvey’s work “actively engages the rich and multifarious history of feminist art practice, while also attesting to a highly personal and singular vision,” according to Los Angeles critic and poet Eve Wood (Artnet.com, March 2003). She was the recipient of the Peninsula Artists Grant in 2007 and the California Arts Council Artists Fellowship in Sculpture in 1997.
Her solo shows include Spread at Matrushka, Los Angeles; shy lemons greens cool chocolates at Whittier College’s Greenleaf Gallery, Whittier, CA; and Panabnorama at Ed Giardina Gallery, Santa Ana, CA. Group show venues include Sherry Frumkin Gallery, Santa Monica; the Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena; San Francisco Museum of Craft and Folk Art; and the Holland Tunnel Gallery, New York. She has held residencies at Side Street Projects, Santa Monica, and Dorland Art Colony, Temecula, CA. Additional teaching residencies with students ages 9-13 in Long Beach and Los Angeles were funded by the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department and the California Arts Council, and her work with students in public art was featured on public transit buses and bookmarks from 1997-2001.
