The third edition of Beyond Eden will once again be hosted by the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park this coming October. Beyond Eden is a multi-gallery event celebrating the New Contemporary Art Movement in Los Angeles. The public is invited to attend this special event and admission is free.

After the overwhelming back-to-back success of the 1st two editions of Beyond Eden, both of which drew over 5,000 people to the beautiful confines of Barnsdall, the organizers plan to keep the focus of the event on the thriving New Contemporary Art Movement. This genre of art continues to build momentum on a national level and is finally starting to receive mainstream recognition from major institutions and publications the world over. With its foundation firmly planted in Southern California and a patron base here in Los Angeles that has been building over the past several decades, it’s easy to see why Beyond Eden has been welcomed with such open arms by the Los Angeles arts community.

Beyond Eden 2011 will showcase the works of a half dozen galleries and will be held inside the beautiful confines of the historic Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery during the weekend of October 1st and 2nd with an opening night celebration planned for Saturday, October 1st. Participating galleries include C.A.V.E. Gallery, Copro Gallery, Gallery Nucleus, La Luz De Jesus Gallery (in celebration of their 25th Anniversary this year), Toy Art Gallery, and Thinkspace.

In addition to the works on display from the participating galleries, Beyond Eden 2011 will also feature live painting demonstrations throughout the gallery inside and out alongside special exhibitions from Cannibal Flower (emerging LA based artists) and Spoke Art (the LA stop of the traveling ‘Quentin vs. Coens’ exhibit) and a special showcase of Los Angeles street artists presented by Thinkspace and curated by local artist Euth. Rounding out this special event will be a showcase in the media room of the ‘best of’ Sketch Theater, the popular online site designed to inspire creativity through time-lapsed, start-to-finish sketches from the world’s best artists.

Founded in 1951, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is a historic 10,000 square foot facility located on the sprawling grounds of Olive Hill in the Barnsdall Art Park. The park overlooks the city of Los Angeles and is also home to the famous Frank Lloyd Wright Hollyhock House and Arts Complex. Under the Department of Cultural Affairs, the LAMAG is the premier city-run gallery that focuses on contemporary art, particularly the work of living Southern California artists.
