Join us Saturday, July 24th, at bG Gallery for the opening reception of our seventh solo exhibition with painter Gay Summer Rick: Interventional Itinerary.

A longtime Los Angeles transplant from New York, Rick has used painting to reclaim home and her place in ever-changing cityscapes. Rick's work expresses quiet vibration and the surprising beauty of commonplace elements found in the urban environment.

Envisioning aerial landscapes suffused with light and atmosphere, Rick undertook preparation for the exhibition by traveling, what she terms, a very "intentional itinerary" between Los Angeles and New York. At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, she was forced, as was the rest of the world, to reevaluate her focus and turn it inwards toward family, friends, and safety. Rick's newest paintings are meant to help viewers emerge from their collective lockdowns and to carry them to inspirational places. The series is a gorgeous celebration of our return to life. Rick explores location, palette, and the unexpected with a wide-open lens, championing optimism, peace, and joy.
