Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 6, 2007
Creative Art Bridges announces a new art gallery website (http://www.artbridgesgallery.com) exhibiting the works of premiere Southern California artists at the peak of their careers: Carol Bishop, Dorte Christjansen, Joseph Gatto, Gayle Salmon Gale, Lukman Glasgow, John Kempton, Mildred Kouzel, Thea Robertshaw, Joel Schiller, Barbara Thomason, Kent Twitchell, Stephen Werlick, Eleanor Yudkoff and LaMonte Westmoreland, and joining this winter Mark Steven Greenfield, Janice DeLoof and Matthew Thomas.
According to Claire Isaacs Wahrhaftig, former Executive Director of the San Francisco Arts Commission, "If you collected one artwork from each artist on Art Bridges Gallery [website] you'd have a first rate collection of Southern California artists. What a wonderful way to save gallery hopping!"
Kent Twitchell is the featured artist in the September launch of Art Bridges Gallery. He's a nationally recognized public artist best known for his monumental murals found throughout the Los Angeles basin.
Selection for the site was based on 25-plus years of professional experience, recognition of peers, and the invitation of the Gallery Director, Joan deBruin, former Director of the Craft and Folk Art Museum, Los Angeles, CA. The online gallery is unique because it is not an adjunct to a particular museum or gallery and can be navigated with three distinct gallery spaces: 1) Two-Dimensional, 2) Three-Dimensional and 3) Collections. DeBruin writes, "As the first of its kind, Creative Art Bridges provides the viewer with the complete gallery experience -- music and poetry frame the curated exhibitions. The gallery includes exhibition titles and notes, a biography outlining the artist's background, collections in trust, works of historical artists, as well as a secure means to purchase these exceptional pieces. In addition, site visitors may commission public and private works."
In the past, fine art has been restricted to exclusive viewing and ownership by a few. No longer is this the case. The website, artbridgesgallery.com, brings a one-of-a-kind gallery experience to curators, art collectors and the public.
