JNA Gallery To Present “Invitation To A Dream” May 5-14:

JNA Gallery at Bergamot Station Art Center presents an “Invitation to a Dream,” the first Los Angeles solo exhibition of work by California artist and designer Shayna Saide LaBeouf.

The exhibit runs Monday, May 5 through Wednesday, May 14, 2014.

An artist reception that’s open to the public will be held Thursday, May 8 from 7 pm to 10 pm.

The gallery will showcase a collection of approximately 30 small mixed media works and a dozen freestanding sculptural purses by noted Los Angeles jewelry and purse designer Shayna Saide LaBeouf.

Her collections have been represented in trendy boutiques in Los Angeles and New York, including Henri Bendel.

LaBeouf’s delightful tableaux, showcased in elegant shadow boxes, are the distilled result of the artist’s personal meditations on love, compassion, and acceptance, including the sacred bond between mother and child.

The transcendent constructions combine ephemera and mementos, including archetypal images of women, gemstones, and vintage found objects.

The subject matter and modes of execution in LaBeouf’s work link to 20th century art currents such as the magical naïve art of Henri Rousseau, the personal surrealism of Frida Kahlo, and the celebration of the Feminine by artist Judy Chicago.

JNA Gallery is located at 2525 Michigan Avenue, Building D4, Santa Monica.
