October 9 - November 26 2011  
Kim Dingle is a much admired Los Angeles painter who launched an impressive career after receiving her MFA and soon after being selected for the 1993 Painting Biennial at Corcoran Gallery of Art. In 1997 her work was included in the group exhibition Sunshine Noir: Art in L. A., 1960–1997," which traveled to several major European institutions, and the Armand Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. In 2000 she was included in the Whitney Biennial. Her work is in the collections of many public institutions including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and MOCA, Los Angeles. She has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles at Kim Light Gallery and Blum and Poe Gallery, and she is represented exclusively by Sperone Westwater in New York.

Dingle’s career took a creative turn in 2001 when she acquired an historic building in Eagle Rock California. It became her studio as well as the home of Fatty’s Café, which grew into a much loved destination restaurant.

In Dingle's new series of oil sketches for Front Gallery, her familiar sprogs return. The portrait-like paintings capture the girls in various moments of mischief and euphoria.
Opens October 8th and runs through November 26th, 2011.
