On Saturday, October 3rd, CHG Circa presents “Your Pencilled Masses, Yearning to be Free” A multifigure colored pencil works group show. Looking to explore the innocence and simplicity of a medium that is not often used in fine art gallery exhibitions, CHG has enlisted some of the top artists in the New Contemporary Art Movement to create new works that carry the themes of their paintings, but in a lighter and gentler presen- tation. The choice of multiple figures creates a level of complexity that enhances the delicate use of shading and softer lines in each piece.

The opening reception for “Your Pencilled Masses, Yearning to be Free” will be hosted on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015, from 7-10pm at CHG Circa. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition is on view through November 7th, 2015.

Established in 2012 by Los Angeles gallerists Jan Corey Helford and Bruce Helford, CHG Circa is their exciting second art venue on Washington Blvd. After launching the highly-successful Corey Helford Gallery
in 2006 in the Culver City Arts District, the Helfords opened CHG Circa as a platform to highlight
figurative and pop surreal artists worldwide, including Ron English, Shag (Josh Agle), D*Face, Martin Wittfooth, Hush, Sylvia Ji, Kazuki Takamatsu, Brandi Milne, Natalia Fabia and many more. Corey Helford Gallery is internationally renowned for its standout exhibitions, from “Letters From America” during the 2012 London Olympics to “Art From The New World,” Corey Helford’s transatlantic collaboration with the Bristol’s City Museum & Art Gallery showcasing work by a formidable group of 49 of the finest emerging and noted American artists in the New Contemporary art scene. CHG Circa presents exhibitions and special projects of equal quality and caliber. “We believe the artists we show and support are creating timeless art,” the Helfords add, and to celebrate this, CHG Circa has an elegant 1930s’ ambiance, stamped tin ceilings and 10 foot arch- ways. CHG Circa presents new exhibitions every 4-5 weeks. For more information and an upcoming exhibition schedule, please visit coreyhelfordgallery.com
