Los Angeles –
Black Maria Gallery is proud to announce “The
Kids are Alright”, an emerging artist showcase series. “The Kids are
Alright” is a five city showcase tour of 25 young artists that have either
recently graduated or are still attending art school. The Series was designed
to give young artists an opportunity to develop their talents while receiving
direction and feedback from a curator and several different galleries.
Artists join the program from Los Angeles, New York, Toronto,
London and hail from some of the top art schools in the world including Otis,
Art Center, Sheridan Institute, RISD and Parsons.
Participating artists will have new work at each of the five
gallery exhibitions. This Tour will premiere at T and P Fine Art (Philadelphia,
PA) and make its way to Subtext (San Diego, CA), Black Maria (Los Angeles, CA),
Show and Tell Gallery (Toronto, Canada) making its final stop at London Miles
Gallery (London, UK).
The Tour is curated by Beau Basse, owner of LeBasse Projects in
Los Angeles. His goal in producing the Tour is to create a platform for young
artists to gain experience working with galleries in order to properly prepare
them for future success as professional artists. More information can also be
