JNA Gallery at Bergamot Station Art Center presents an "Invitation to
a Dream," the first Los Angeles solo exhibition of work by California
artist and designer Shayna Saide LaBeouf.
The exhibit runs Monday, May 5 through Wednesday, May 14, 2014.
An artist reception that's open to the public will be held Thursday, May 8 from 7 pm to 10 pm.
The gallery will showcase a collection of approximately 30 small
mixed media works and a dozen freestanding sculptural purses by noted
Los Angeles jewelry and purse designer Shayna Saide LaBeouf.
Her collections have been represented in trendy boutiques in Los Angeles and New York, including Henri Bendel.
LaBeouf's delightful tableaux, showcased in elegant shadow boxes, are
the distilled result of the artist’s personal meditations on love,
compassion, and acceptance, including the sacred bond between mother and
The transcendent constructions combine ephemera and mementos,
including archetypal images of women, gemstones, and vintage found
The subject matter and modes of execution in LaBeouf’s work link to
20th century art currents such as the magical naïve art of Henri
Rousseau, the personal surrealism of Frida Kahlo, and the celebration of
the Feminine by artist Judy Chicago.
JNA Gallery is located at 2525 Michigan Avenue, Building D4, Santa Monica.
