Art can take us to places that are figments of the imagination, let us see people consigned to a paragraph in a history book, or even transport us to realms that never have and never will exist.
bG Gallery continues its newly-incepted residency at Bergamot Station with “Portal”, a show that asks the viewer open their mind, and be lifted toward fantastical realms, surrealist fantasies, and mystical manifestations of transcendent transmissions from a series of artists--known and unknown.
As part of the Portal exhibit, bG will have the fantastical bronze sculpture “Angel Landing” which is to be used as this year’s Courageous Content Award trophy. Other sculptures by the award’s sculptor Doug Johns will be on display and the reception will be a preview event for the Courageous Content Woman Award. Art sale proceeds on the award preview and opening reception night will support charities combating domestic violence. bG Gallery will also present the award to recipient, Beth Sullivan (Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman), at the culminating Red Carpet event on November 14th at the Avalon in Hollywood.
The gallery is open from Tues. to Sat. from 11:30am - 6 pm at Bergamot Station, next door to the Bergamot Cafe.
