Tour Stop 3: LA show at Black Maria Gallery

Black Maria Gallery opens “The Kids are Alright”, an emerging artist showcase series this weekend. “The Kids are Alright” is a five city showcase tour of 25 young artists that have either recently graduated or are still attending art school. The Series was designed to give young artists an opportunity to develop their talents while receiving direction and feedback from a curator and several different galleries.

The Tour is curated by me, Beau Basse, owner of LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles. The goal in producing the Tour is to create a platform for young artists to gain experience working with galleries in order to properly prepare them for future success as professional artists.

For the show at Black Maria artists were asked to work exclusively in black and white.

The Kids Are Alright
July 18th through August 8th, 2009
Opening Reception: Saturday, 18th of July, 7:00 - 10:30pm

Artists join the program from Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, London and hail from some of the top art schools in the world including Otis, Art Center, Sheridan Institute, RISD and Parsons.

Participating artists will have new work at each of the five gallery exhibitions. This Tour will premiere at T and P Fine Art (Philadelphia, PA) and make its way to Subtext (San Diego, CA), Black Maria (Los Angeles, CA), Show and Tell Gallery (Toronto, Canada) making its final stop at London Miles Gallery (London, UK).
