Thought you might be interested in seeing the recent blog posted by Hillary Metz, founder of Blythe Projects Gallery. 


She recently travelled deep into the jungles of Peru to the village of Santa Isabella where she met (and stayed) with the renowned Shipibo artisans, experienced firsthand the development of their paintings, embroidery and beading rich with complex geometric patterns, met with the children who were just learning the sacred craft and artists who have been creating these one-of-a-kind designs for decades, and experienced the spiritual awakening that arises within the Shipibo community and beyond from its creations.  

If you are interested in speaking with Hillary or for more information or images, please contact me at 310.857.6994 or via email.  Also, see below for additional information on Blythe Projects and Hillary Metz.



Established by Hillary Metz in 2009, Blythe Projects represents US-based artists creating conceptually and spiritually driven work in a variety of media. The gallery’s transcendent aesthetic and commitment to works of contemporary interest and timeless significance are underscored by its innovative structure. Blythe Projects is not tied to a permanent gallery space, but rather hosts acclaimed exhibitions within eclectic spaces—such as Andaz West Hollywood, Sunset Marquis, private homes of notable art collectors and other distinguished venues—that reflect an artist’s specific ethos. The result is a gallery experience that is consummately unique, adventurous, and extraordinary for collectors and enthusiasts. Described as “that small space where Leonard Cohen meets Led Zeppelin,” Blythe Projects also participates in several international art fairs, with a strong focus on Miami, Los Angeles, and New York.
With an art career spanning 13 years, Hillary Metz founded Blythe Projects, which represents US-based artists creating conceptually and spiritually driven work in a variety of media, in 2009. Metz’s transcendent aesthetic is underscored by Blythe Projects’ innovative structure—the gallery is not tied to a permanent gallery space, but rather hosts acclaimed exhibitions within eclectic spaces and noteworthy venues that reflect an artist’s specific ethos. Representing both mid-career and emerging artists, Metz supports visual artists who create works at the intersection of representation and abstract, whose processes reflect paths that interweave the aesthetic, spiritual, and scientific. 
Metz’s unique approach is informed by extensive travel and diverse life experiences. She grew up in South Dakota where she developed a keen sense of spiritual culture, travelled throughout the South Pacific, Australia, New Zealand, and South America, and studied the art and anthropology of various cultures around the globe. As a result, Metz’s work embraces a distinct context that is at once metaphysical, urbane, modern, and accessible. Before creating Blythe Projects, Metz was the director of prominent contemporary art galleries in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she mounted 12 exhibitions a year. Metz is a Hammer Fellow and a member of LAXArt’s Curator’s Circle, LACMA’s Modern & Contemporary Council, and the Space Tourism Society. She also served on the MOCA Contemporaries Board from 2008-2010 and is serving a second term on the Los Angeles Art Association Board.
