Event Description

World of Wonder and Artists Corner Gallery present “Round Hole, Square Peg 2”, a juried international exhibition and first queer/LGBT show ever staged at Photo LA. “Round Hole, Square Peg 2″ is an on-going search for new LGBTQ visual archetypes. 30 emerging and mid-career artists selected from an international competition will be presented in the Artists Corner booth at Photo LA. An invitational, curated Wall of Fame featuring current top photographers will form a special part of the exhibition. Now in its 25th year, Photo LA – from January 21-January 24, 2016 – is one of the longest-running fine art fairs in the USA.

After Photo LA, the exhibition will open at the Artists Corner Gallery in Hollywood, California on Saturday, February 6, 2016 from 7-10 PM. The gallery’s opening night reception will be a fundraising auction-party for The Trevor Project: the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to (LGBTQ) young people. Tickets are $40 and will be obtainable through Eventbright. Celebrity-driven art works on auction will be available for viewing and bidding at Auction winners will be notified by phone and e-mail. Sponsors of “Round Hole Square Peg 2” include Artillary Magazine, Fabrik Magazine, LA EyeWorks, The Tom of Finland Foundation and West Hollywood Lifestyle Magazine. Later in 2016, “Round Hole Square Peg 2”, will be on display at the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Advocate & Gochis Galleries for a five-week exhibition.
