Honored To Share Some Great News...

Kline Academy of Fine Arts

congratulates our instructor Lana Gloschat
on her recent "Best in Show" award.

 Very honored, Lana Gloschat, award-winning artist, colorist, and instructor, was selected to receive the "Best in Show" award in the 2019 Colored Pencil Magazine's art competition.

Noted by the judges, Lana's highly realistic portrait demonstrates great technical skill. In Judge Paul Hink's words, "the expressions on the faces of the man and the boy are captured perfectly, and the luminous rendering of the skin tones creates a feeling of light and freshness. This depiction of an every day activity is also elevated by the sensitive observation of a moment shared between father and son." 

Congratulations on an exceptional piece Lana.

Work under Lana Gloschat's guidance and expertise 
every Monday, from 6:45pm - 9:45pm.

Artist-run Galleries defying odds..

Knowing "how" and "where" to exhibit your own work is very difficult.
Kline Academy of Fine Arts 
knows that.

We share with you some valuable information..

"Artist Run Galleries Defy the Mega-Dealer Trend in Los Angeles"

New York Times Article

We recently came across an interesting article regarding Artist-run Galleries. Established in unusual locations, garages, apartments, you name it, these Artist-run Galleries are defying the odds as they compete with mega-dealer trends in Los Angeles. A detailed discussion about the vision behind these artist-run galleries is also introduced, detailing the motivation of the Artists and how they managed to maintain a career as an artist while running a gallery. 

Give the New York Times Article a read.

Artist-run Galleries:

Less Profit Driven

Promote a welcoming / inclusive environment

Establish a strong Sense of community
