Our Pick of the Week takes place at George Billis Gallery. Growing up in New York City, I’ve always be a fan of city life. Each year George Billis Gallery hosts a citiscape show featuring the urban sprawl that so many of us call home. Come enjoy each artist’s take on city living.
Here’s the scoop, direct from the gallery…
George Billis Gallery is pleased to present it’s fourth annual Cityscape Show, a group show of work by gallery artists and selected guest artists. The exhibition runs from July 12th to August 23rd with an opening reception on Saturday, July 12th from 5-8pm.
The Cityscape Show is a visual exploration of the environs we inhabit. Los Angeles is a unique city in many regards in its architecture, geography, and natural environment. Spanning a space that includes mountains, ocean, and desert, Los Angeles and Southern California are a source of immense inspiration to many artists.
This exhibition brings together a group of artists whose individual works come together to show a multifaceted and fascinating city. These pieces illustrate the ever-changing urban landscape from downtown skyscrapers, iconic landmarks, graffiti-ed alleyways, and vast freeway networks to pastoral hills and the bright lights of the Hollywood Hills.
