We recently received a touching testimonial from participating artist Dr. Mark Valinsky: "I was very honored to be a part of this art exhibition. Thousands of people attended the overall event at the prestigious Bergamot Station Art Complex in Santa Monica, California. There was a consistent overflow crowd of art enthusiasts visiting the Sulkin/Secant Gallery. It was the best attended art showing ever, closing almost 2 hours later than anticipated. I want to personally thank Ms. Lark Larisa Pilinsky, Gallery President and Mr. Tony Clark, art expert Trustee of the Hollywood Arts Council for a memorable and highly successful event."
Also please read an excerpt from a letter by Fahriye Mahrenholz:
"LarkGallery is an incredible example of international collaboration, work toward mutual understanding, and a model for public discourse on social topics through the arts. We strongly support LarkGallery Online. It provides an invaluable service to the public and organizations such as ours."

We work to increase the visibility of talented artists from around the world and foster appreciation of art by teaching people of all ages a 21st century art language. We use the conversations of color, shape, texture and line to demonstrate that communication can be free of prejudice toward any language, religion or philosophy.
