For the past 15 years, Longstreth has drawn inspiration from the “non-place of American capitalism,” including video stores, fast casual dining establishments, big box retailers, and parking lots, along with the atmospheric Southern Californian landscape.
The works on view at the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum will represent these themes, but will also emphasize Longstreth’s more visionary treatment of the landscape. These paintings offer a further subjective, inner perspective that has been an understated, yet consistent theme throughout the artists’ oeuvre.

The Crisp-Ellert Art Museum is please to present an exhibition of recent and past work by New York-based artist Jamie Isenstein. Isenstein’s long interest in the nature of truth and illusion, the self, and the body, has resulted in a body of work that spans photography, sculpture, video, and performance. Included in the exhibition will be a new series of photographs and sculptures, that speak to the mistranslation of the reflection of the body that one might experience with ‘fun house’ mirrors.
