Laura Korman Gallery is pleased to announce The Arts Must Go On, a group exhibition benefitting the Frostig Collection, running from June 21st-August 16th. A private reception will be held on Saturday, July 1, from 5-7 p.m.
This exhibition will also mark the final show for the gallery in this space – after two years at Bergamot Station, Laura Korman will be closing her gallery storefront to pursue new paths.
Fully devoted to continuing her active role in the arts, Korman will maintain an online presence for the gallery, work as a consultant for private clients and act as a counselor for students interested in pursuing careers in the arts. Due to the continued success of the gallery’s representation of Washington DC-based artist, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, Korman will be working in collaboration with Lia Skidmore of Skidmore Contemporary Art to maintain Tzu-Lan Mann’s presence at Bergamot Station.
To mark the occasion, State Assemblymember Richard Bloom, who serves on the California Joint Committee on the Arts, has been asked to speak during the reception on July 1st for The Arts Must Go On. An active advocate for the arts in California, Assemblyman Bloom introduced AB 189 in 2015, which sets out to foster and preserve arts and culture districts throughout the state.
The Arts Must Go On is guest curated by Kate Stern of the Frostig Collection. The show will feature works by Larry Bell, Ed Moses, Charles Arnoldi, Alison Saar, Eric Johnson, Gary Baseman, David Buckingham, Kenton Nelson, Mike Stilkey, Ray Turner, Michael Kalish and Brad Howe.
