On Saturday, April 1st, Downtown Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery (CHG) will present their fourth annual Art Collector Starter Kit group exhibition, showcasing an array of art from over 50 well known artists and newcomers to the CHG roster.
Opening reception for ACSK lV will be hosted Saturday, April 1st from 7-11pm in the main gallery at CHG. The reception is open to the public and the group show is on view through April 29th.
Four years ago, CHG established what would become an annual tradition — the Art Collector Starter Kit group exhibition. The aim was to have the top artists in the New Contemporary art scene create all new 12″ X 12″ works that would be more affordable for beginning collectors. This way, new collectors could own works from their favorite artists rather than settling for whatever was in their price range. It was also a way for artists to show that they weren’t just interested in the big-ticket collectors, but all collectors. The exhibition was met with huge crowds and incredible enthusiasm and this year CHG introduces ACSK lV with an incredible line-up of 50 artists, including world-renowned artists such as Camille Rose Garcia, Shag, Hush, and many more.
One of the goals of CHG has always been to bring the artists they love into the homes of as many art lovers as possible. At many openings, the gallery hands out 300-500 free mini prints of the exhibiting artist’s works, just to help enthusiasts bring home a piece of art from the show. ACSK lV is an extension of that policy, offering much more affordable works from artists who are truly appreciative of their fans and go the extra step each year to show it. CHG believes art is for everyone and will continue to expand the New Contemporary scene with an “inclusive” approach to fine art.
About Corey Helford Gallery:
Corey Helford Gallery (CHG) was first established in 2006 by Jan Corey Helford and her husband, television producer and creator, Bruce Helford (Anger Management, The Drew Carey Show, George Lopez, The Oblongs) and has since evolved into one of the premier galleries of New Contemporary art. Its goals as an institution are the support and growth of young and emerging, to well-known and internationally established artists, the production and promotion of their artwork, and the general production of their exhibits, events and projects.
CHG represents a diverse collection of international artists, primarily influenced by today’s pop culture and collectively encompassing style genres such as New Figurative Art, Pop Surrealism, Neo Pop, Graffiti and Street Art, and Post-Graffiti.
After nine years in Culver City, CHG relocated in December 2015 to a robust 12,000 sq. ft. building in Downtown Los Angeles, seven times larger than its original space, where it continues to host exhibitions within the heart of the city’s art community. The current space boasts three separate galleries, each of which house individual artist and group exhibitions, whereas the main gallery offers 4,500 sq. ft., providing total immersion for its attendees. New exhibitions are presented approximately every four weeks.
