Lucid Dreaming @ Copro Gallery: A Beautiful Bizarre Curated Exhibition

Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s 11th curated exhibition, Lucid Dreaming is currently on view at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, CA!

In case you missed the opening, here are a few photographs of the gallery. Sadly, we couldn’t be there in person this year due to the ongoing pandemic, but we are so happy to see that the opening night was still a huge success. We love how Copro Gallery displayed the artworks – and we are so grateful to Gary and Erica (Gallery Directors) for their ongoing support of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine. Their love of the arts matches our own and their enthusiasm is truly infectious!

Additionally, this show couldn’t have been put together without the 67 incredible artists themselves. My deepest gratitude goes out to every one of you who have taken part in Lucid Dreaming. The high caliber of artworks produced for this show went above and beyond our aims. Lucid Dreaming is an evocative mix of 2D and 3D artworks which combine the aesthetic of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine with that of Copro Gallery, and each piece is a unique pleasure to behold. Myself and the Beautiful Bizarre team are extremely proud of this group exhibition!
