ABBOT KINNEY ART GALLERY features NEW WORKS PLUS SPECIAL EVENTS
Abbot Kinney Art Gallery, specializing in contemporary art and sculpture, opened its doors in mid-March 2005 with an eclectic collection of works by 17 established and award winning LA artists. The “New Works” exhibit opens on September 6 25, 2005. Reception for the Artists is Saturday, September 10, from 6-9pm. On Saturday, September 24, at 8 pm, Yale Cabaret Hollywood will present a one woman show, American Cassandra, by Barbara Bragg
The Gallery, located in the heart of Venice, California’s thriving Abbot Kinney District and art center, creatively alternates its 1400 sq. ft. of dedicated exhibition space for both featured artists and group shows. Walls are structured to stand away from the windows allowing air and light to free-flow throughout the installations creating space within space. Some paintings are hung in suspension from rails constructed in the ceiling resulting in the interplay of atmosphere and art. The common thread in all the exhibitions is exceptional quality and presentation of the work.
The Gallery changes its exhibits monthly and offers special events throughout that are designed to entertain, educate and entice viewer participation. Last month, the Gallery co-hosted two events in conjunction with the Klappert/McGill Exhibition an evening reading to a packed house of the play, “The Hiroshima Daughter,” by Robert Barnett and presented by Yale Cabaret Hollywood; and, a Saturday afternoon premiere interpretive dance performance by Ruth Gould-Goodman, founder of La Madre Yoga, inspired by Klappert’s digital paintings and classical piano recordings.
The represented artists are: Susanne Belcher, Marylyn English, Yolanda Klappert, Sandra Cooper, Linley Eathorne, Susan Gesundheit, Sarah Willman Grote, Dafna Gilboa, Lee Goldberg, Karen Hansen, Cynthia Kagan, Camey McGilvray, Darlene Mellein, Mary McGill, m. Rheuban, Rachel Ross, and Avidan Ross. The Gallery’s exciting collection includes 3-dimensional wall sculptures, works on paper and canvas in a variety of media, ceramics, glass and sculpture.
