Frank Lloyd Gallery Artists

Frank Lloyd Gallery, established in 1996, represents contemporary painting, sculpture and ceramics. Primarily emphasizing major West Coast artists that emerged since 1950, the gallery also presents ceramic sculpture in the context of the contemporary art world. The expanded exhibition program has included a show titled Sculpture from the Sixties, which featured major works by Robert Irwin, Craig Kauffman, Larry Bell, as well as Ken Price, John Mason and Peter Voulkos. Another survey exhibit presented drawings by Craig Kauffman, Ed Moses and Larry Bell. During the past fifteen years, the exhibition highlights included a major historical survey of works from the early 1960s by John Mason, Ken Price and Peter Voulkos, a phenomenal installation of recent glass cubes by Larry Bell, and an extraordinarily imaginative exhibition by Adrian Saxe. In addition to the mission of re-contextualizing the achievements of major figures in West Coast art, the gallery promotes the work of emerging and mid-career artists. Frederick Fisher and Partners, internationally acclaimed architects, designed the gallery, located in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica.

Frank Lloyd Gallery is an important source for private collectors, and also works with museum curators in curatorial projects and acquisitions. The gallery has placed over ninety works in museum collections, and gallery artists have been included in major survey exhibitions. The Pacific Standard Time series of exhibitions, an initiative of the Getty, included several major exhibitions featuring the work of gallery artists. Frank Lloyd was selected by the Getty Research Institute as a member of the project’s steering committee, and has been instrumental in recovering the history of post-war art in Southern California. Frank Lloyd was co-curator of a major survey, Clay’s Tectonic Shift: John Mason, Ken Price, Peter Voulkos, one of the Getty-sponsored presentations. The Frank Lloyd Gallery was also a participating gallery in Pacific Standard Time, and its exhibition program was coordinated with the museum shows and publications. The gallery is the representative of the Estate of Craig Kauffman and the Estate of Peter Voulkos. Gallery exhibitions have been reviewed in Art in America, Artforum, Los Angeles Times, and other publications.

The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  More information can be obtained by calling the gallery at (310) 264-3866.
