  • Note:
    Donated by Jean Milant and Cirrus Editions

    The following lot will be sold to benefit Morgan Thomas, an active and vital presence in the Los Angeles art community in the 1970s. A number of artists and their galleries have generously agreed to donate the proceeds from the sale of their artwork to benefit Morgan Thomas in her time of need. Claire Copley, Dorit Cypis and Connie Lewallen have kindly coordinated the donations.

    In the 1970s, Morgan Thomas, Claire Copley and Connie Lewallen each directed innovative galleries in the Los Angeles area. The Claire Copley Gallery on La Cienega Boulevard presented a range of American and international artists including Allen Ruppersberg, Michael Asher, Bas Jan Ader, and William Leavitt. ThomasLewallen Gallery in Santa Monica showed many of the artists associated with CalArts including Douglas Huebler, John Baldessari, Jack Goldstein and Jonathan Borofsky.

    In 1977 Thomas, Lewallen, and Copley developed the nonprofit organization Foundation for Art Resources (FAR). The foundation enabled the gallerists to work more flexibly with the artists they supported. During this time, FAR produced John Baldessari's film Six Colorful Inside Jobs and James Lee Byars' performance and book Open America, which took place in Los Angeles and New York. Still operating today, FAR is the longest extant arts cooperative operating in Los Angeles without an exhibition space.
