“Youth Parade,” an exhibition of new work by New York-based Michael Mararian opens 2010 at Cory Helford Gallery. Mararian’s painting places the innocence of youth in often frightening narrative. His intent, clearly, is to investigate the pressures facing children (both familial and societal). “Youth Parade” is Mararian’s second solo showing at Cory Helford and features both ink-on-paper drawings and acrylic pieces.
Complementing “Youth Parade,” LA artist Miso unveils paintings and sculpture in her “The Cold Returns” exhibition. Both shows open on January 16, 2010 and run through February 6, 2010.
Cory Helford Gallery is located at 8522 Washington Blvd in Culver City, CA.
