Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s 15th curated exhibition, Secret Longings, is currently on view at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles until 15 April. So if you haven’t yet visited the gallery to see this amazing exhibition, please do make some time this week – its not to be missed! Of course you can see the entire exhibition online here. If you are interested in adding to your collection do take a peek – the work is exceptional! You can contact Gallery Director Sherri J. Trahan at firstname.lastname@example.org for sales enquiries.
Secret Longings explores our hidden desires and deep longings, whether these are emotional or physical; focused on a partner or friend; lifestyle or career – these longings come from the heart. They are our hearts, or souls if you rather, whispering to us.
Secret Longings is our 1st Beautiful Bizarre Magazine curated event at Corey Helford Gallery, featuring 78 of the best International artists in the New Contemporary Art scene. The exhibition is a phenomenal success with collectors enthralled as they visit this dreamy wonderland. Danijela Krha Purssey, the co-founder and editor in chief, has created a sophisticated and glamorous world with Beautiful Bizarre Magazine. It is a utopian landscape where magical, sumptuous artwork springs from the pages. Imbued with her incredible intuitive sense, she has a talent for curating the best of the New Contemporary Art genre. I’ve been enamored with the magazine since its inception in 2013, and so this collaboration with Beautiful Bizarre Magazine on Secret Longings is a dream come true for Corey Helford Gallery.Sherri J. Trahan, Gallery Director
This is the first time that Beautiful Bizarre Magazine has worked with Corey Helford Gallery in this capacity, and we are so grateful to Gallery Director, Sherri J. Trahan and team for their professionalism and hard work on behalf of Beautiful bizarre Magazine and all the artists involved.
It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.GEORGE ELIOT
