Celebrating their Grand Opening this weekend is the Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Culver City, California. This new showplace, founded by Beau Alexander, aims to introduce a new breed of gallery, and to fill a gap in the artists represented in the Los Angeles area. “There are many great galleries in Los Angeles and especially here in Culver City,” said Beau Alexander. “But there are many talented artists whose work is just not available in the Los Angeles area. We are putting a gallery together that is based on curated shows rather than representing a long roster of artists. Our goal is to build lasting relationships with our clients and give the support that the artists we are working with deserve.” The grand opening exhibition features new and moderately priced paintings by 13 artists including: Jeremy Lipking, Kim Cogan, David Kassan, Bill Schenck, Joseph Todorovitch, Glenn Dean, Jefferson Hayman, Mark D. Nelson, and Logan Maxwell Hagege.
Upcoming exhibits in the 2013 schedule will include a show of contemporary Western Art, a category of prime importance to the gallery. “We want to show that there is quality in every genre of art, be it Western, or traditional realism,” says Alexander. “There seems to be some prejudice on both coasts against Western art but we feel it needs to be looked at simply as American Art. Collectors shouldn’t be worried about it matching the style of their homes; certain pieces have a modern feel and can fit into any art collection. It won’t be what people are used to thinking of when it comes to Western Art.”
The Maxwell Alexander Gallery is located at 6144 W. Washington Boulevard, in Culver City, California, 90232.
