Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, California proudly presents Literartistry, a group show featuring works of art inspired by the written word. As Michelangelo was inspired by Dante's The Divine Comedy and John Everett Millais by Ophelia in Shakespeare's Hamlet, each artist in Literartistry has based their piece on a book that has inspired or affected them in a meaningful way. Upstairs, the Gallery's loft space has been transformed into a classic library stocked with the titles featured in the show. Guests will have the opportunity to peruse the artists' favorite books just as they would at a traditional library. The opening reception for Literartistry took place on Saturday, August 11th and the exhibition will remain on view until September 1, 2007. Here are photos of some of the people at the opening, and several of the included works.

Nate Frizzell

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 17, 2007
We're sorry art public. We're sorry we didn't tell you about Nate Frizzell sooner. We know that you like to hear about great artists as soon as possible. But it takes time to find them, to make the post, to publish. And for that time, again, we're sorry. We had no right to keep you from seeing Nate's illustrations. That was wrong of us. We shouldn't have kept you from knowing that Nate has a piece in the Literartistry show at Corey Helford Gallery. We should have told you sooner about how his work has a gentleness and intelligence that fit so well with his rough-hewn style. We don't know what else we can say except sorry for everything. We won't let it happen again. We just want things to be like they were before all this, when we could go fishing together and just chill out. Are we cool? Cool. {moscomment}

Interview: Joshua Petker

Jolene Torr interviewed Los Angeles-based painter Joshua Petker [JUXTAPOZ Issue #80] in the days leading up to the Literartistry opening at Corey Helford Gallery. This literature-themed show features two new pieces by Joshua based on some of his favorite Shakespeare. And for a little voyeurism, there's a photo blog of a day-in-the-life of this "lost, romantic, lonely, lusting" artist.

Van Arno "Medusa" Corey Helford Gallery is pleased to present Sweet Home Valhalla, a solo exhibition of new works by Los Angeles artist Van Arno. His first solo show with the gallery will feature a series of twelve oil paintings, combining elements from World War One and the Gods of Mythology to create narratives that are as visually exciting as they are extreme. Drawing from his lifelong fascination with history, Arno incorporates cultural references, historical icons and unusual storylines into his work. Medusa is caught in an unguarded moment engaged in her hair care and nutrition regimen. Dutch stripper Mata Hari is transformed into a tank-busting goddess. And an antlered Valkerie rescues a dying German fighter pilot. Working in a figurative style he calls Uber Mannerism, Arno presents his characters in the most dynamic way possible. "The goal is to represent the figure in a hyper-stylized way that is still tenuously believable. The rules of anatomy, gravity, lighting, and physics must be altered to fulfill this goal."

On June 1st, Buff Monster's new solo show, Happy Squirter, will be unveiled at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, California. The accompanying installation will consist of more than 700 hand-silkscreened balloons and a 5-foot-tall boob fountain. And, of course, all new paintings and prints. This exhibit demonstrates an even cleaner, more stylized mode of expression than his previous works. Should be quite a sight. Click the image for a little preview.
