"Curating a Better World: Tenth Anniversary Show"
2006-07-09 until 2006-08-25
Workmens Cirle
Los Angeles, CA, USA United States of America

"Curating a Better World" at the Workmen's Gallery celebrates 10 years of unique mission with Benefit Show from July 9 to August 25, 2006. Ten years ago The Workmen's Circle of Southern California created A Shenere Velt Gallery (Yiddish for "a more beautiful world") as a venue where the work of noncommercial Jewish and non-Jewish artists, many of them expressing the countercultural ideas our society requires for critical thinking, would be welcome. Since 1996 the gallery has mounted over sixty exhibitions, including literally hundreds of artists, many of them women and so-called "minority" artists often bypassed in commercial galleries.

Many artists-those shown here and others who appreciate the ongoing project-have expressed their eagerness to help the celebration and have generously donated works for our Tenth Anniversary Show.

"Curating a Better World" will run from Sunday, July 9 (Opening Reception from 1-5 pm) through Friday, August 25. There will be a Private Patron Reception on Saturday evening, July 8, from 6-9 pm for those who donate $50, or multiples thereof, in advance of the public opening the next day.

Most of the art work will be priced at $50 each-affordable and accessible for just about any budget, much of it socially relevant-as a benefit for the Gallery, launching a second decade of meaningful cultural work. As a special attraction, art lovers will be able to choose five works for $200. One wall will be devoted to higher-priced items.

Participating artists include: Edith Abeyta, Jill Ansell, Balfour, Mariona Barkus, Pat Berger, Ida Bernstein, Lucy Blake-Elahi, Suzannah Bolton, Mariana BrooksMueller, Linda Diane Bunk, Margaret Burnett, Antonio Castro, Jackie Dimetros, Danielle Ferreira, Sylvia Gavurin, Kevin Haran, Carol Hayman, John Henderson, Cynthia Clarke Jones, Ursula Kammer-Fox, Carmen Hay Kolodzey, Lynette Mathis, Louise McGee, Vladimir Midoun, Connie Millholland, Gloria Moses, Debra Olin, Tony Ortega, Laurel Paley, Nannette Cotton Pawlowski, Billy Renkl, Jane Richlovsky, Jerry Ross, Kathy Ross, Eliza M. Schmid, Masha Schweitzer, Milly St. Charles, Michelle Waters, Kurt Brian Webb, John Pitman Weber, Margi Weir, Peter Whittenberger, Mary Penelope Young, Laura Jean Zito.

A Shenere Velt Gallery is part of The Workmen's Circle/Arbeter Ring, which has been active in Southern California since 1908, dedicated to Jewish culture and social justice.
