Please join us Saturday October 3rd from 7-10 pm for “Where the Magic Happens” a group exhibition celebrating Los Angeles artists who are going out of their comfort zone to create opportunities for themselves, establish their place and thrive beyond the gallery system. With more pop-up and artist run galleries, independent artist art fairs, artist run blogs and magazines and a plethora of organizations helping artists succeed on their own, artists are bypassing the gallery system. The exhibition is presented by Shoebox PR who believes that artists are living in a DIY art world and they have to create opportunities rather than wait for them to happen.
Phantom Galleries Los Angeles (PGLA) revitalizes and energizes communities and pedestrian thoroughfares by converting vacant storefronts throughout Los Angeles County into temporary galleries and pedestrian viewing only galleries transforming districts into vibrant cultural hubs through the 24/7 public presentation of art. – See more at: http://www.phantomgalleriesla.com/about/mission/#sthash.tmSMA6ta.dpuf
Shoebox PR was created in February 2014 when Kristine Schomaker started working with a friend who needed help getting press for an exhibition. Working as social media, marketing and advertising manager for the Brewery Artwalk Association and an artist herself, Kristine has been using social media and press to gain exposure for her own art and that of the artists she supports at the Brewery. She realized very fast how much artists were looking for help getting their work out to the public, media and galleries. Most artists want to focus on working in the studio rather than handling the business side of art. Kristine’s many years of administrative experience as well as her skills in leadership, organization, art history education and knowledge of the art world have given her the experience needed to help these artists gain greater exposure for their work so they can continue to create unhindered.
