“On Saturday, August 2nd, Flower Pepper Gallery is pleased to present Artists Across America, an exhibit of original artworks sourced directly from the studios of over 50 artists working in the continent of North America. Works range from abstract to figurative, and from nationally celebrated artists to recent graduates. The artists and their work were selected by the world’s most adorable art critic, Daniel Rolnik, in cooperation with Flower Pepper Gallery.

In May, the show’s curator drove across America to visit artists living outside of Los Angeles and New York. He arrived in each city with an open mind – ready to explore whoever was suggested by scholars or encountered by magic. And there was a lot of magic. When he parked in New Orleans it was the French Quarter Festival, when he parked in Dallas it was the art fair, when he parked in Tucson it was the open studio night. All of which was unplanned and fantastic. He thoroughly documented each artist’s studio practice and then invited them to partake in the most spectacular collection of contemporary work to have ever been shown. When you walk into the Artists Across America collection, you are traversing the entire country in one glance. You are driving from coast to coast and outside your window is the artwork of the nation.

Please join us on August 2nd, 2014 at Flower Pepper Gallery for a sampling of art from across the United States that will be nothing short of epic.

The reception is open to the public and on view until August 29th, 2014. For purchase inquiries, or to request a VIP preview please email contact@flower-pepper.com
