Shayna Saide LaBeouf 'Universal Wisdom' will be on show at JNA Gallery starting Monday, May 5.

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

child.

The transcendent constructions combine ephemera and mementos,

including archetypal images of women, gemstones, and vintage found

objects.

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.
