What an incredible turnout for the “Silent Communication” art show opening reception! Crowds of art enthusiasts gathered at our Pasadena contemporary art gallery to experience this powerful collection of artwork. Not only were the walls flowing with contemporary art that push the boundaries, leading our eyes from one artist to the next, but overall, the night was filled with bursts of artistic outlets that triggered our visual and auditory senses.
This one of a kind show is comprised of a variation of local and international artists. Their artwork, rendered in diverse media, calls for a profound interpretation. Many of our participating artists were even present that night. This gave way to sharing their process and mindset behind the making of their pieces. As people hovered around one artwork to another, there was an unspoken invitation to converse about what they were viewing. Just walking through the crowd you could hear enthusiastic artists dissecting their art for those who were curious, such as artist Larry Reinhart, who chatted about his connection to animals and why they are portrayed far more grandiose in his paintings than what they are in reality.
Let’s not forget the incredible live performances that were happening throughout the night! Artist Tina Dille, did a live art demonstration using water colors, allowing viewers to observe the spontaneity of the transparent paint’s movement as she lightly brushed it onto the paper. A beautiful set was played by singer-songwriter Alyssandra Nighswonger for the live musical performance. Admirers gathered around as her vocals echoed through the gallery acting as a soundtrack to the art show. And as we had mentioned, gourmet food truck Get Toasted was parked right outside, catering their sandwiches to our hungry art-lovin’ crowd.
Curator at Linus Galleries and fine art photographer, Linnea Lenkus, carefully chose the artists who made “Silent Communication” a memorable art exhibition. Lenkus is delighted to have ended the year with a show revolving around a more serious tone. Our first 2014 art show will be in February. This means the launch of call for entries will begin soon.
It is far more than safe to say the “Silent Communication” opening reception was a success! We highly recommend that if you haven’t seen the show, you check it out online HERE.
