10th Anniversary Exhibition @ Corey Helford Gallery


If you planned to view Corey Helford Gallery‘s 10th Anniversary Exhibition in person, but had not had a chance to do it, don’t delay! The exhibition is going to close this Saturday, September 24, and is truly an exhibition you wouldn’t want to miss. There are hundreds of artworks – paintings, sculptures, installations, and digital artworks – by some of this decade’s most influential contemporary artists from around the world. Many of the works are in very large scales; and, collectively, their impacts are larger than life. Recently, I had the pleasure of viewing the exhibition in person. I truly wish I could’ve stayed in the gallery a few hours longer. Being surrounded by numerous stunning artworks I could hardly avert my eyes from is an unforgettable experience I can’t get enough of.

    Wow, that was amazing. I won’t be able to go to CHG, but i did go to their website, where they have the entire exhibit posted, however, your angled shots really helped add necessary dimension, and i really appreciate that. Especially with work like Riikka Hyvönen’s and Handiedan’s. Also, it was wonderful to see the work with their frames, which is another whole added dimension, esp with those artists who use such ornate ones, like Camilla D’Erico, Jasmine Beckett Griffith, Alessia Iannetti, and Jennybird. It’s so risky, what their doing, so against the modernist grain, i really applaud them for it. I’d be afraid that the frames would compete with the artwork, which i think is the case, at least a little, with Griffith, altho that frame is beautiful and matches her subject matter well. I think D’Erico is very wise to use white frames, and Jennybird black ones, they really complement their work, and fold the ornate frame within the artwork. Iannetti chose a beautiful frame, the intricacies of which echo her work so wonderfully. I also loved the Installation views, I appreciated getting to see how the art was arranged. Anyway, thanx for letting me see added dimensions of this wonderful, historic event. I so wish i could have gone in person, but this is def helping me get a feel for what it was like.
