"Literartistry: A Group Show"
2007-08-11 until 2007-09-05
Corey Helford Gallery
Culver City, CA,
USA United States of America
Corey Helford Gallery is pleased to present Literartistry, a group show featuring works of art inspired by the written word. As Michelangelo was inspired by Dante's The Divine Comedy and John Everett Millais by Ophelia in Shakespeare‚'s Hamlet, each artist in Literartistry will base their piece on a book that has inspired or affected them in a meaningful way. Upstairs, the Gallery‚s loft space will be transformed into a classic library stocked with titles featured in the show. Guests will have the opportunity to check out the artists‚ favorite books for their reading enjoyment ˆ just as they would at a traditional library. The opening reception for Literartistry will take place on Saturday, August 11 from 7 to 10pm and is open to the public. The exhibition will remain on view until September 5, 2007.

Passionate art collectors, the Helfords are producers on the art documentary The Treasures of Long Gone John and have partnered to open their first gallery. Corey Helford Gallery presents a wide range of artists, from members of the new fine art movement, such as Andrew Brandou, Natalia Fabia, Korin Faught, Eric Joyner, James Naccarato, David Stoupakis, and Sage Vaughn, to early Modernist William S. Schwartz. Notable shows include Charity By Numbers, which was co-curated by Gary Baseman and featured an unprecedented lineup of artists including Mark Ryden, Marion Peck, Shepard Fairey, Todd and Kathy Schorr, Camille Rose Garcia, and Michael Hussar. Corey Helford Gallery presents new exhibitions approximately every four weeks. For more information and an upcoming exhibition schedule, please visit coreyhelfordgallery.com.
