Beautiful Bizarre Magazine is thrilled to be collaborating with long term partner Copro Gallery, to bring LA the best representational artists from around the world for the incredibly exciting group exhibition – “Lucid Dreaming”!

By embracing your subconscious, you gain a different way of seeing and experiencing—an expanded perception that opens a doorway, not only to lucid dreams, but also to the mythic dimension. As in lucid dreams, you see yourself or others with new eyes; your senses awaken and grasp an experience more fully than ever before; suddenly, you find your ears are open to hear with a deeper understanding.

Jenny Davidow, Embracing Your Subconscious

This exhibition will bring the pages of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine to life, with artists working across styles and mediums in exploration of the ‘Lucid Dreaming’ theme!

The opening reception will be open to the public. The gallery will of course be observing all measures to ensure the health and safety of its visitors. Please wear a mask.

Copro Gallery will also have all of the works up online so you can peruse the exhibition at your leisure. Please make sure you email Gallery Director Gary Pressman to get on the Collectors’ Preview list, to ensure you don’t miss out on your favourite work! The gallery will also be sharing a virtual tour of the exhibition – stay tuned for more information.
