Project Gallery : is now the Cerasoli : leBasse Gallery
Two major Culver City Galleries will merge to become the Cerasoli : leBasse Gallery and will launch their inaugural show October 11th 2008. Over the past six years, both galleries have brought the most exciting cutting-edge contemporary artists to the Los Angeles art world.
Launched as a merger between Project: and The Cerasoli Gallery (formerly The Lab101), the partnership combines the strongest work from both galleries rosters. The new gallery will be owned and operated by Beau Basse and Freddi Cerasoli, with over twenty years of combined experience in the fine art world. The Cerasoli Gallery has a history of being the home for some of the most in-demand urban and contemporary artists, while Project: has established itself as the launching point for some of the most highly talked about young talent.
Cerasoli : leBasse will undoubtedly become the destination for both established and first time collectors through a commitment to spotlighting fresh, relevant and poignant new works by their artists. Represented artists will include: Yoskay Yamamoto, Grant Barnhart, Edwin Ushiro, Blaine Fontana, Jennifer Davis, Alexandros Vasmoulakis, Tessar Lo, David O’Brien, Matt Hansel and more.
The Inaugural Exhibition will feature artworks by Melissa Haslam, Vincent Hui, Mari Inukai, Ryuichi Ogino and Deth P Sun in Gallery I. Gallery II will feature Jennifer Davis and Suzanne Sattler. The opening reception will take place on Saturday October 11th from 7 to 10pm at Cerasoli : leBasse Gallery 8530-B Washington Boulevard, Culver City, Ca. 90232.
The selection of artists in Gallery I reflects the second wave of young emerging Asian painters. Hailing from China and Japan these artists are exploring the juxtaposing cultures of east and west in their daily lives and artwork. In contrast to Gallery I, Gallery II features two outstanding female artists depicting feminine characters in a whimsical world.
Plans to take the gallery global are already in place beginning this December at Art Basel, followed by international art fairs in London and curated exhibits in Barcelona and London later in 2009.
