Abbot Kinney Art Gallery, featuring Contemporary Art and Sculpture, is a new artist-owned gallery nestled in the heart of Venice, California’s thriving Abbot Kinney District and art center. Opened officially in mid-March, the Grand Opening will take place on Saturday, May 7th from 5:00 9:00 pm. The gallery represents a select group of 16 established and award winning contemporary artists from the greater Los Angeles area. The collection is exciting and eclectic with works on paper and canvas in a variety of media including 3-dimensional wall art, ceramics, glass and sculpture.
The Gallery occupies 1400 sq. ft. of dedicated exhibition space for its artists. Of particular interest is the use of the space itself. Walls are structured to stand away from the windows allowing air and light to free-flow throughout the installations. The result is the creation of a space within a space. Some paintings are also hung in suspension from rails constructed in the ceiling resulting in the interplay of atmosphere and art.
Gallery artists include: Susanne Belcher, Marylyn English, Rachel and Avidan Ross (Tarzana), Sandra Cooper (Bel Air), Linley Eathorne (Pasadena), Susan Gesundheit and Dafna Gilboa (Sherman Oaks), Lee Goldberg (Bell Canyon), Karen Hansen (Burbank), Cynthia Kagan (Santa Monica), Sarah Willman Grote and Yolanda Klappert (Topanga), Camey McGilvray (Pacific Palisades), Darlene Mellein (Van Nuys), m. Rheuban (Woodland Hills), and Mary McGill (Agoura).
Every month the gallery will host a new show and featured artists will be showcased in monthly installations.
