  • About the ExhibitionThe Zealot’s Elixir is a group show curated by Doubleparlour. All work is in sculpture or three­dimensional form in a variety of mediums including ceramic, resin, wood, and found objects. The impressive roster of artists includes international artists as well as many from the thriving local Bay Area community. They were chosen by Doubleparlour because of their work holds emotional and intellectual qualities that engage the viewer, as well as a commitment to perfecting their craft. The theme of the show is based false prophets and snake oil. The artists each present a unique interpretation on this theme that embodies trickery, faith, hope, and lies.
  • Lana Crooks loves the antique, the creepy, the cute and the mysterious. A textile sculptor by trade she resides in the depths of Chicago, IL. Constructing creatures from fabrics and found objects, she is a purveyor of faux specimens and soft curiosities. Sought after for her pattern-making abilities, Lana has frequently been spotted teaming up with other artists to breathe three dimensional life into their illustrations. Crooks is also a member of the OhNo!Doom collective in Chicago and the gallery director for Clutter Gallery in New York. But, on an average day, you can find her in the studio surrounded by skulls, old books, model ships, faux fur, glass eyes, a menagerie of stuffed friends and a cat named Tanuki.
