On Saturday, July 25, 2015, Corey Helford Gallery ’s extremely popular Art Collector Starter Kit group exhibition returns for its third annual event with all new 12” X 12” works from an exciting line-up of new and established New Contemporary artists. In addition to this exciting show, CHG will be celebrating its last exhibition in Culver City. After nine years on Washington Blvd., the gallery will be opening a new larger gallery space in Los Angeles. The location and projected grand opening will be announced soon. The motivation behind an exhibition of all 12” X 12” paintings stems from the fact that newer collectors, or enthusiasts, who have never bought an original piece from one of their favorite artists, may now do so. CHG, through its CIRCA gallery, continues to pursue its mission of spreading the joy and satisfaction of art appreciation and collection to the larger, often not reached, public that sees itself some what outside the elevated world of gallery attendance and/or the pleasure that comes from the owning of original art. The art world often seems to have an invisible wall, making some patrons feel unwanted.
CHG, through its live events, open to the public, and its free print and free poster program - 17,000 anti-war posters created by some of the top artists in the New Contemporary scene were given away at the Art Basel art fair in 2007 - hopes to create a more welcoming experience for these patrons and the affordability of 12” X 12” original works is a step in that direction. The opening reception for the “3rd Annual Art Collector Starter Kit” group show will be hosted on Saturday, July 25, 2015, from 7-10pm at CHG Circa. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition is on view through August 15, 2015.
