What people are saying:

Excerpted from METROMIX
Art attack: Arlene Bogna’s ‘Safari Americana’
By Kimberly Waid & Alie Ward (June 2008)
Photos from her new series, “Safari Americana: Scenes of Delight” pop off the paper with rich pigments and a gorgeous stillness. Exploring the very specific and bizarre theme of roadside animal effigies (fiberglass cows, anyone?), Bogna presents a show that’s hauntingly vintage in aesthetic but also an homage to modern, plasticine life.

Excerpted from SCWCA / Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art
by Suvan Geer (June and July 2008)
The strange, sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing nature of human vs. animal relations is the focus of film maker Arlene Bogna’s first exhibition of color photographs at gallery 825. 6/21 to 7/18.

Part social commentary about [the] role of animals in contemporary culture and part multi-media burlesque – Arlene Bogna’s Safari Americana: Scenes of Delight delights its audience with a myriad of narratives and constructs, all in service of a provocative yet successful formalism.
Peter Mays, Executive Director Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA) / Gallery 825.
