In a new group show at Beinart Gallery in Australia, nature’s flora and fauna are explored. Courtney Brims, Lauren Marx, Crystal Morey and Thomas Jackson, each with his or her own distinctive approach and themes, contribute to “Botanical Bestiary,” which runs from Aug. 11 through Sept. 2 at the space. Much of the work is inspired by the terrain of Australia itself, from the native artists.
The bricolage sculptures of Stephen Ives are the focus of an upcoming retrospective at beinArt Gallery in Australia. His pieces, surreal blends of discarded objects, model kits, toys, and other materials, are often playfully militaristic. Even at their most humorous, each of these creations feels as though it has its own purpose.
beinArt Gallery presents Small Works 2016. This group exhibition features over 55 of the most highly skilled and imaginative artists in the new contemporary art movement. With all works under 10” x 10” (25.4 x 25.4cm) this greatly anticipated exhibition will offer collectors a rare opportunity to acquire affordable art from a host of internationally celebrated artists. Opens Saturday, September 17, 6pm – 9pm. Runs until October 9. See complete online preview.
Australian artist, publisher, and curator Jon Beinart is the founder of the beinArt Surreal Art Collective, a group of international artists notable for their surreal and imaginative styles. 2014 marked the reinvention of this collective which at one point featured over 500 artists- many of them will come together in a special iteration of the “beinArt Surreal Art Show” at Copro Gallery in Los Angeles this February.
The beinArt Surreal Art Collective has announced a compelling stretch goal after an extraordinary beginning to their Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign. With additional contributions, they hope to open a beinArt Collective Gallery and Shop. A real-life creative hub which would focus solely on strange, surreal and imaginative figurative art. The artists of the Collective have rallied together and contributed an extraordinarily long list of rewards for backers, including original artworks, limited-edition prints and books! These generous, heavily discounted deals will only be available for the duration of the campaign, which will finish in 8 days!
