DanielakArt is pleased to announce A Touch of Red - a new exhibition of paintings celebrating the color red at Phantom Galleries LA.

 An opening reception for the artists will be held on Saturday evening, March 8, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. 


Featured artists include Pasadena-based abstract painter Linda French, who created new work for the exhibition, African-American artist Toni Scott, a former grand prize winner in American Photo Magazine’s annual competition, and award-winning local figurative painter, Julie Snyder.   

A native of Scotland, Ms. Snyder, who is new to DanielakArt, studied drawing and painting at the Glasgow School of Art.  Her artistic career has spanned both sides of the Atlantic and included several years of study in Southern Spain.  She forged her craft as an illustrator in advertising, publishing and the motion picture industry, including Warner Bros. Her distinctive work tells the stories of everyday people in their environment.  For this exhibition, her work features images of boxers and dancers each sporting an outfit that has just a touch of red.     

Larger scale works by contemporary artists Adam Bota and Clemens Wolf are also included in the exhibition.  Their artwork is curated by Edgar Varela, Director of Edgar Varela Fine Arts of Los Angeles.
