MEG FRANKLIN: gloryland
Oculus Gallery will present Gloryland Brooklyn-based American painter Meg Franklin's first solo gallery exhibition on the West Coast from March 22 through May 2, 2018. The exhibition will be held at the Varola Gallery space, suite B256, located at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.
Oculus Gallery is pleased to present a selection of Italian (and Italian-inspired) fine furnishings, lighting and accessories entitled Italian Style: 1930s – 1980s. The exhibition will be held at the Varola Gallery space located at the Pacific Design Center.
This exhibition will outline three major themes, tracing the Italian design movement’s trajectory from the inter-war years through the Post-Modern era: the influence of traditional “Craft Arts” from through the early years of the Marshall Plan; how these earlier traditions led to high-quality, small-scale production of modern goods in the later 1940s and early 1950s; and finally the emergence of a more European-focused Italian approach through the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s.
Italian Style: 1930s – 1980s will feature Italian works from Fontana Arte, Stilnovo, Cassina and Paolo de Poli, as well as American-made pieces which utilize hand-crafted elements imported from Italy and Edward Wormley for Dunbar’s decidedly Italian-inspired La Gondola sofa from 1957.
