Call for artists
As the sun spreads it's rays so we bring together the colors and forms of Summer. Our artists' palettes and media reflect the hues of summer in all it's strata. We are embracing diversity and encourage solidarity in this celebration of this most joyous time of the year. Only in Los Angeles could we find such divers artists from so many walks of life. Their works in every imaginable form and medium give us pride in presentation.
In this exhibition there is something for everyone in size, shape and media. This is our Summer Bouquet of both art and artists. Together their voices will be heard in their techniques and expressions. This exhibition is burst of summer that gives a kaleidoscopic prism of visual arts.
We are calling all artists to partake in this celebration. All submitted, high-quality art work will be exhibited on the LarkGallery website and considered for our brick-and-mortar show. 10 best artists will be selected and exhibited in the MD Art Gallery, Los Angeles for the month of June.
This exhibition is juried and curated by Tony Clark, Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

ART-LAB IN CIVITELLA, ITALY
Great news - LarkGallery has an opportunity to send 15-20 artists to an Art Lab and two weeks' residency in Italy from July 13 to 28, 2015. In this program artists from different countries will paint, gain knowledge from masters by working side by side with them, exchange ideas and learn from each other.
Academia Luciana, M.D. Gallery and LarkGallery have pooled their forces to offer the Summer Academy 2015, a forum for artistic creativity amidst the majestic scenery of the medieval castle of Civitella in the region of Alto Lazio. Beside Art Lab activities academy participants will have time to rest, to rejuvenate their creativity and have a retreat from everyday life. Academia Luciana is planning a day trip to the nearby situated Roma, the valley of La Serpara and the Tarot Garden of Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely.
The art studios are located in the renovated castle premises. You can enjoy authentic Italian country cuisine and the famous Alta Tuscia wines in the neighborhood cafes.
After the completion of the Art Lab we will conclude with an exhibition of the best artworks in Civitella. We are also planning a winter exhibition at the MD Gallery in Los Angeles. One art work created during the residency will be retained by the organizers for an exhibition at the museum of Civitella d'Agliano.
The Art Lab participants will be selected in a competition juried by the Academic Council of Academia Luciana, led by its founder Honorary Professor Christian L. Hamsea.
Awards All submitted, high-quality art work will be exhibited on the LarkGallery website. First Prize: Free art materials and free accommodation at Art-Lab 2015.

We received a great testimonial from Doctor Laura Kristan Wilhelm about our International Women's Day event:
"Stunning event at the PDC on Sunday!!! I liked the singers, the paintings, the wardrobe stylist, the chocolate goodies, and everything else."
A touching testimonial from our Represented 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."

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.
