Making Talents Visible




Open for Submissions

LarkGallery is seeking American and former Soviet Union artists, sculptures and installations that are influenced by Russian culture and heritage. The deadline for submissions is April 20, 2017.

The City of West Hollywood through its Russian Advisory Board invited LarkGallery to take part in the 16th Annual Russian Arts and Culture Festival. The grand event will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2017 and will give an opportunity to artists to introduce their talents to thousands of people as part of the Russian Arts and Culture Month.

This exhibition shows art that reflects and comments on the culture and history of the former Soviet Union and shows how artists with their roots in East European countries express their art in dialogue with Western influences.

In the last two years our Art-Lab in Italy was a forum for artistic creativity amidst the majestic scenery of the medieval castle of Civitella situated in the area between Rome and Florence. The studios are located in the renovated castle premises.

This year the Academia Luciana in Civitella d'Agliano, Italy, gave us the opportunity to bring a few people for a special program called 'Circle of Friends'. The program will run from August 19 - 31, 2017.

For a fee of 580 Euros the participants will receive lodging for almost two weeks, art studio space and two free canvases. The art created on one of those canvases will be chosen by Academia Luciana for permanent collection in the museum of Civitella d'Agliano. Artists are responsible for their own air fair and meals.

Artists have the opportunity to book a master class in painting or photography offered by Academia Luciana for up to 5 participants and art works will be presented in a public art show. Exhibitions in galleries in the US and Europe are being planned.


We have a special opportunity for you to participate in a International Master Art Class in Saint Petersburg, Russia which will be conducted from September 10 to 17, 2017.

The theme of this Master Class is Global Ecology. 10 - 15 participants will be chosen from the artists who submitted their art. Artists can bring a few artworks selected by organizers to St. Petersburg on the theme of the festival that will be exhibited in the one of the popular local Gallery, located in the center of St. Petersburg.

Participating artists will also have the opportunity to exhibit artworks created by them during this Master Class. Two free canvases and art materials will be given to them by organizers. Artists will donate one artwork chosen by organizers to the gallery's permanent collection.

The participants of the Master Class will also have the opportunity to visit free musical festival events and have a tour around St. Petersburg.

The cost of this art retreat is $850 which inlcudes lodging, painting materials, painting studio and exhibition space. Artists are responsible for their own air fair and meals. We will assist artists to receive Russian visas. If you have questions please call Lark at (310) 473-0890.

Please read the excerpt from a letter by Fahriye Mahrenholz: "LarkGallery is an incredible example of international collaboration, work toward mutual understanding, and a model for public discourse on social topics through the arts. We strongly support LarkGallery. It provides an invaluable service to the public and organizations such as ours."

Our Mission

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.

We want to give thanks to
