Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
Los Angeles based contemporary art gallery, Linus Galleries, exhibits local, domestic, and international artists at every level of professional experience. The budding art gallery curates both live and online art exhibitions, which allows them to exhibit a wide variety of mediums and sizes of visual art. Curator and owner of the art gallery, veteran Los Angeles photographer Linnea Lenkus, says the mission of the gallery is to “Embrace contemporary art that is sophisticated and thought provoking” and Lenkus selects her pieces through juried art competitions from the galleries’ calls for art.
The calls for art feature interesting, visually responsive themes which are written with artists, curators, and those interested in art collecting in mind. “We have had several artists comment that our calls are so inspiring that they have created art pieces specifically for our themes,” gallery director Julianna Calin shared. Upcoming 2014 themes include The Feminist Agenda; art honoring the female spirit, Traditions and Uniforms; which both embrace culture and Undressed; the popular call for artwork depicting the human figure. Linus Galleries said that any art calls that focus on the human form can attract a lot of different levels of art and the gallery is clear that they are looking for tasteful and sophisticated artwork that represents the human physique, both subtle and bold without being explicit.
Linus Galleries continues to be very active both in the LA area and worldwide with a strong web presence through various social media outlets and blog posts that continually feature the galleries' artists and their work. The gallery strives to share exceptional artwork and with their unique international art calls they are guaranteed to keep their edge in the art world.
