By Patty Tedesco Topanga Canyon,CA(Hollywood Today)11/28/12/—It’s that time again…time for Topanga Canyon Gallery’s Annual Holiday Show. The juried group exhibition will showcase over forty artists with its popular wall of $50 6×6 works. The Holiday Show offers a relaxed sense of community while supporting artists and celebrating the festive season. Many come to find that special gift that can be found nowhere else. There will be an eclectic array of original selections to choose from. The exhibition will feature paintings, sculpture, watercolors, pastels, ceramics, glass, jewelry, gourd art, mixed media, photography, and more. Topanga Canyon Gallery is an artist collective once known as the Topanga Artists’ Guild back in the 1950’s. The organization was revived in 2000 and re-located to its current home. The collective actively presents new exhibitions showcasing emerging and established Los Angeles artists. Although many of the members do reside in Topanga Canyon, membership is open to all. Venice resident Joel Harris has been working professionally as an artist since 2003 and loves being a part of Topanga Canyon Gallery. He explains how his work has changed, “Over the years, I have been interested in discovering how to quiet my mind to allow the pure creative force to move through me.” He continues, “This is slowly changing my interactions and relationship with my art. I enjoy being in a meditative state while painting and this is reflected in some of my latest work.” The Holiday Show is a great time to support local artists while finding that special one of a kind gift for a loved one “It’s dangerous to buy something you adore for someone else,” laughs longtime member and Topanga Canyon resident Rebecca Catterall.“ After the holidays we hear customers saying how they could not bear to part with something and ultimately kept it for themselves. Sometimes this causes them to do more shopping in the gallery for the replacement gift!” Topanga Canyon Gallery, located at 120 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd., #109, Topanga 90290, will host a reception on Saturday, December 1st from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Topanga Canyon Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. You’ll have a second chance to enjoy a reception for the exhibition and pick up some last minute gifts on December 15th, since the gallery will stay open late during Pine Tree Circle’s annual snow night. The exhibition will remain on view through January 5, 2013. For more information about Topanga Canyon Gallery, call 310-455-7909 or visit their website at http://www.topangacanyongallery.com/
