On Saturday, July 25, Corey Helford Gallery presents ‘The 3rd Annual Art Collector Starter Kit’ group exhibition. This annual event features all 12″ x 12″ works by an impressive list of new and established artists working in the New Contemporary scene. Since its inception, the Art Collector Starter Kit group shows have allowed new collectors and fans to acquire new works by artists they may not have been able to acquire otherwise.

Wonderland Art for Animals Show Now Online


On behalf of Leanna Lin’s Wonderland and North Central Shelter, I want to thank everyone who came out to last night’s opening event despite the weird weather! (Who ever heard of a July thunderstorm in Los Angeles?) Rain didn’t dampen our spirits, and the gallery was busy all night long. Many pieces sold out but plenty of great works are still available. View the entire show online.

Thanks to all of the artists and opening event donors for their participation! Gallery and event photos will be posted this week so stay tuned.
