Anomalies

October 13 – November 3

“Anomalies” will be the third beinArt Collective group show at Copro Gallery, curated by Jon Beinart. The participating artists have been hand picked for their natural disposition towards the strange and deranged. This exhibition will showcase over 50 artists’ interpretations of “Anomalies” and sideshow/carny culture. There will be paintings, drawings and sculptures of subjects that will deviate, distort and mystify. Human oddities, anatomical wonders, freaks, geeks & gaffs. Step right up and peek inside the beinArt Collective’s cabinet of curiosities!

Against The Grain

August 25th only

Arches and Rembrandt, leading fine art material manufacturers, present Against the Grain, a one-night art auction to raise grant funds for one Los Angeles-based student artist. With more than fifty participating artists, Against the Grain will feature works on paper that showcase diversified studio practices through a shared medium. Unlike any other charity arts auction, Against the Grain pioneers an artist community-based project in direct support of the next generation of emerging artists.

From the frenzied tableaus of Eddie Martinez to the illusory oils of Annie Lapin, the works donated to Against the Grain will have a humble starting bid of $100. Each participating artist will be provided with newly developed archival paper by Arches paper mill (France) that does not require gesso before painting with oil colors, a key advancement for the painting practice. Additionally, the artists will be given a selection of the finest quality Rembrandt oil colors from Dutch color maker, Royal Talens. Additional sponsorship of gift certificates and cash awards will be provided by local participating fine art stores, announced the night of the event. Local curatorial entity, 5790projects, and curator Amir H. Fallah will select one student artist from a surrounding university to award funds raised from the silent auction– a grant that can be used for studio practice, tuition, or supplies. A pool of student artists will be nominated by each participating university’s Studio Art faculty, each of which will receive a studio visit from event producers 5790projects and Fallah in order to determine the prizewinner. The grant recipient will be announced at the close of the event on August 25th, 2012 at the sponsoring venue, Mark Moore Gallery (Culver City, CA). 

The opening reception will also feature live DJ sets, food trucks, and beer tasting by Brouwerij West. Event tickets are $10 – and can be purchased on:
