Things Really Are Black and White at Linus Art Gallery
2011-12-01 · By Editor
Linus Galleries of Southern California will have an open reception on December 9, 2011 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at their Long Beach/Signal Hill art gallery. The theme of the art show is “Black and White,” presenting not just photography, but all two-dimensional monochromatic artwork.
Linus is the brainchild of fine art photographer Linnea Lenkus. Lenkus created her art galleries in her studios as a way to help artists she admires show their work to a Southern California audience. “I was frustrated with what I saw in many art galleries, and I knew that there were many artists out there who share my vision about art and were not getting seen. This is my way of adding to the art world. Their vision is my vision,” Lenkus said.
Linus Galleries will have upcoming collective shows based on such art themes as Beauty, Portraits, Landscapes, Green, Abstracts, Still Life, Food, Love and Nudes. Call for entries for artists can be seen here: http://linusgallery.com/call-for-entries.html
