Fabien Castanier Gallery is proud to announce our support of ARTWORKS FOR THE CURE, an eclectic and offbeat show that will take place at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport from Friday, October 11 to Sunday, October 13. At this event, the gallery will auction off works by Speedy Graphito, JonOne, Tilt, and Charlie Anderson.
Over 150 contemporary artists are represented, painters, sculptors, photographers and mixed media artists from all over the globe. A number of the artists from MOCA’s ART IN THE STREETS show will be represented, including Shepard Fairey, Mister Cartoon, RISK, Estevan Oriol and Todd James. There will also be an exhibit focusing on the graffiti that was on both sides of the Berlin Wall and, maybe best of all, you will have a chance to try your hand at tagging street art.
The benefitting charity, the T.J. Martell Foundation, originated in the music industry, and there is definite musical influences in some of the work, including a superb collection of rock photography and the visual art of many music artists including Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp, Edward O’Brien (Radiohead), Brandon Boyd (Incubus), both John and Julian Lennon and Yoko Ono, Leonard Cohen, Grace Slick and Janis Joplin.
There will be at least 50 artists, present on opening night, Friday, October 11th, for the VIP MEET THE ARTISTS RECEPTION. LA CONFIDENTIAL is the Media sponsor. You can get the first look at the art, plus there will be a Red Carpet, live music, wine, beer and hors d’ oeuvres by the owners of Crustacean and Tiato Restaurants.
