In honour of our strong women artists represented at Wallspace "Our Voice Is Our Strength" celebrates the many different women artists represented at Wallspace. As a gallery dedicated to creating a working enviroment and relationships with emerging & more established artists Wallspace is delighted to showcase the following artists and works that personify their inner strength.
This online show is a co-curation with artist Amy Smith and gallery owner Valda Lake - International Women's Day is a perfect opportunity to celebrate a gallery where over 50% of the artists are women - to be anything less is unacceptable - unapologetic, gritty, strong, forceful and subtle that come to mind with the women artists featured, as Zeal Harris has said "we speak for a lot of reasons".
Enjoy these unique voices and celebrate their individuality.
Featuring artists - Mb Boissonnault, Betsy Enzensberger, Nathalie Gordon, Zeal Harris, Jacqueline Jandrell, Melinda McLeod, Joan Schneibel, Amy Smith, Angela Stimson, Kymm Swank, Stephanie Visser and Jen Zahigian.
WEST HOLLYWOOD, October 20, 2020 – The City of West Hollywood presents the public art installation RELAX UR OK and ONE LOVE by artist Scott Froschauer, his first foray into neon art. The installation is available for viewing at the traffic median at the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and Holloway Drive through June 2022.
Using the institutionalized structure of road signage as inspiration, artist Scott Froschauer's RELAX UR OK and ONE LOVE surprise and delight viewers by replacing the traditionally negative and coercive language with positivity and inspiration. As a reaction to surreal and unprecedented distanced-reality, Froschauer's words of hope, love, and affirmation stand in stark but positive relief, welcoming visitors and residents alike into one of the most inclusive cities in the world.
The City of West Hollywood installation was curated by long-time West Hollywood resident, Valda Lake, owner of the Wallspace gallery. RELAX UR OK and ONE LOVE is an 'Art on the Outside' project organized by the City of West Hollywood's Arts Division. The Art on the Outside program installs rotating temporary artworks on the City's medians and in parks. It is anticipated to be on display through June 2022.
