Preview: Copro Gallery’s 20th Anniversary Group Show

In 1989, Douglas Nason purchased a Robert Williams serigraph from Greg Escalante. From this moment, a friendship blossomed and the two started Copro Nason Fine Art Publishing in 1993. After curating group shows at various venues, Copro Gallery found a permanent home in 1999 and is now a hallmark of the Los Angeles gallery scene today. Curator and gallery director Gary Pressman (whom we recently interviewed for our ongoing "Gallery Spotlight" feature) joined the team in 2002, and the gallery has continued to show important artists such as Mark Ryden, Travis Louie, David Choe, Luke Chueh, Chet Zar, Audrey Kawasaki and Dan Quintana as well as introducing fresh talent to the art world. Though Douglas Nason left the gallery in 2008, Copro Gallery has continued its mission of showcasing boundary-pushing works of art. This Saturday, August 17, Copro Gallery celebrates its 20th Anniversary with a huge group show with an extensive roster of artists. See our preview of the show after the jump!
