Co-LAb Gallery is pleased to announce LA-based artist Isa Beniston’s second solo show, Especially for You, opening April 29th from 7-10 pm.
As Beniston wraps up her first year working on her retail line Gentle Thrills, the show is a reflective moment that presents finished artwork, working drawings, and apparel alongside one another. Especially for You addresses the thin line between the art world and the retail industry by presenting Beniston’s uniquely playful drawing in two different contexts: apparel and works on paper. Rows of drawings communicate across the room with hand-painted blouses, asking viewers to consider what factors affect the monetary as well as the aesthetic value of a work.
An opening reception will be held Saturday, April 29th from 7-10pm. The reception is free and open to the public. Co-LAb gallery is excited to announce that Georges Duboeuf will be co-sponsoring and providing wine for the event.
Especially for You will be on display throughout the month of May, from April 29th until May 14th. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11am-6 pm, and Sunday from 11am-5pm. Co-LAb Gallery is located at 5319 York Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. For early preview information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
