Opening Tonight: Zero To Sixty at Corey Helford GalleryJuxtapoz // Friday, 01 Jul 2011
Zero To Sixty marks the fifth anniversary of Corey Helford Gallery opening its doors in Culver City, California, and on Friday, July 1 the gallery will salute the occasion with a massive group exhibition featuring works from Amy Sol, Alex Pardee, Hush, Greg "Craola" Simkins, Nick Walker (above), Todd Schorr, and others.
More than fifty artists from around the globe were invited to create a special piece for the anniversary show. “‘Zero To Sixty’ is a show of what’s best at Corey Helford Gallery and what’s to come — new works from the artists who’ve shown with the gallery from the beginning and a host of works from artists we just love, like Joe Sorren, Todd Schorr, Greg Simkins, Kent Williams, Nick Walker, Sas and Colin Christian, and also some artists who have never shown with us before, like MEGGS and Kazuki Takamatsu,” explains gallery owners Jan and Bruce Helford.
Zero To Sixty opens tonight, July 1, 2011.
Described as a paint-by-number on steroids, one of the show highlights will be a 53” x 40” painting created by San Francisco artist Eric Joyner (whose work is above). Internationally recognized for his paintings of robots and donuts, Joyner created the piece using digital technology to expand an original paint-by-number onto a giant giclee canvas.
Participating artists include:
Jason Shawn Alexander
Josh Agle (Shag)
Stella Im Hultberg
Simone Legno (tokidoki)
