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 recently expanded exhibition program included a show titled Sculpture from the
Sixties, which included 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 eighty 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, will include several
major exhibitions featuring the work of the 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 is the 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 is a participating gallery in
Pacific Standard Time, and its exhibition program is 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
