CB1 Gallery is pleased to present Summer Reverie, a group exhibition featuring twenty-one contemporary artists, many represented by CB1 Gallery but also a few surprises—younger artists as well as several whose work has not been seen in LA in recent years. The paintings, many of modest size, vary in medium from traditional oil and acrylic to gold leaf and other non-traditional materials; the drawings include graphite, ink and natural pigment drawings and range from post-it note size to much larger scale drawings. The exhibition opens on July 23 and continues through August 26, 2016; an opening reception will be held on Saturday, July 23, from 3:00 until 6:00 p.m.

Emily Davis Adams, Lisa Adams, Tom Betthauser, Ain Cocke, Jack Davidson, Georganne Deen, Merion Estes, Elliott Green, Nathan Hayden, Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia, Phung Huynh, Kevin Larmon, Michael Mancari, Annelie McKenzie, Timothy Nolan, Dane Patterson, Brett Reichman, Daniel Samaniego, Matthew Scarlett, Lily Simonson and Craig Taylor
Imagine a lazy summer day with time to spare. You stroll in the park. No particular goal. Not a super orchestrated event. Just taking in the scenery, maybe the flora, maybe people watching. Maybe something or someone catches your fancy and you linger a bit longer. Maybe just lying down looking at the sky with summer clouds, letting your imagination soar. Like that lazy summer stroll you’ve imagined, Summer Reverie allows the viewer to take in various works of art by numerous artists, linger longer in front of something that catches your eye and imagination and spend time enjoying the visual pleasure of the artists’ work.
Paintings and drawings abound in this summer exhibition, some abstract, some tightly representational, others narrative or surreal. All intriguing and draw your eye to look closer to explore the present or imagine another world altogether—things that compose your summer daydream when you visit for our Summer Reverie.
