THE LALO COLLECTION TO BE SEEN AT BROOKLYN’S IN FRONT ROYAL

The first exhibition of artworks owned by Lalo, Inc. will be exhibited soon at Brooklyn’s Marketplace on Main Street in Front Royal. The Lalo Collection represents original works of art by Lalo member artists and contributions of art by Lalo members who want the art to ”live on”. The Lalo Collection is growing. Now numbering over 50 pieces, the entire collection cannot currently be seen in one place. “We’ve tried giving viewers a good cross-section of works by Lalo artists and works by other artists which are now part of the collection,” said Bryane Lickson, Lalo Founder and Chief Curator. The Lalo Collection goes on view in March, 2018 at Brooklyn’s. Works in the Lalo Collection are not for sale, as Lalo is building up an art collection which can be taken to places where original art from a gallery or museum is not usually seen. Lalo also has gallery space upstairs at Brooklyn’s where art by Lalo artists is for sale. Original paintings and fine art prints can also be seen at the Art Gallery at the Warehouse in Luray, the Blue Wing Frog in Front Royal, CrepeWorks in Winchester and Falls Church Distillers in Falls Church. Many artworks for sale and for viewing are online at letartliveon.com. Prints of works from artists all over the world can be seen at: buyartfightpoverty.org – a site administered by Lalo for A Future Without Poverty, Inc.

NEW GALLERY IN FRONT ROYAL

Just in time for the 2017-2018 Holiday Season, Brooklyn’s Marketplace opened in its new home, the former Kibler’s Furniture Store at 206 East Main Street in Front Royal. The Marketplace was founded in 2007 by Arlene Ballou, who is known by her nickname “Brooklyn,” and has expanded from its original 3,000 square feet to 11,000. The Marketplace is funded by The Center for Workforce Development, Inc., a not-for-profit entity administered by Brooklyn. “We are delighted to have so much interest in art at our new site,” said Brooklyn recently. Art at Brooklyns is not new. The former facility also housed a number of artists and art being sold by other non-artists, but, as Brooklyn herself points out, the growing relationship with LALO brings both new art and an art professionalism that brings a new perspective. “It brings exposure and a bit of professionalism” to the field, she said in a recent article in the Warren/Frederick County Report. Brooklyn was referring to LALO’s philosophy of tracking sales and having the art continue to live on through the LALO website, even if the art is sold. Bryane Lickson, founder and Chairman of Lalo, was also pleased to open a new outlet for LALO Society member artists. Currently over 30 pieces of art are on exhibit at Brooklyns. “This also represents our fifth physical gallery she said, “in addition to our online gallery.” All pieces at Brooklyns are for sale, but even if sold, this art will “live on” through LALO’s online exhibition hall. Bryane also pointed out that the display has both original paintings and fine art prints of works done by Lalo member artists. Brookyn herself has become a member of the Lalo Society and Brooklyn’s Marketplace has begun an affiliate relationship with Lalo. Bryane continues to say: “Our mission to ‘Let Art Live On’ remains paramount to any place we display Lalo member art. Any person or organization buying a piece of art from Lalo at Brooklyn’s Marketplace or any of our several galleries will get Certificates of Originality or that the work is a signed, numbered print and a Certificate Upon Resale if they should dispose of the work” . She reminds potential buyers and artists: “We’re going to trace the provenance (history) of each work acquired from Lalo or one of its affiliates as much as possible”. “We’re so pleased that Lalo member artist Karen Weinberg helped bring about the connection with this newest place to see member art,” said Charles “Chips” Lickson, Lalo President. Karen Weinberg has her own space at Brooklyns and also offers classes there on her signature alcohol and ink on glass artwork. FWOP printsAlso on display at Brooklyns is art, in print form, from many places around the world. This display is part of the Buy Art Fight Poverty Program which has become the art component of the commitment to end poverty of A Future Without Poverty, Inc. (FWOP), a 501(c)(3). The Program website, www.buyartfightpoverty.org, has been set up and is administered by Lalo, Inc. for FWOP. The opportunity to see LALO member art at Brooklyn’s Marketplace joins other LALO exhibitions at the Warehouse Art Gallery in Luray, the Blue Wing Frog in Front Royal, Falls Church Distillers LLC in Falls Church and CrepeWorx in Winchester.

FCD Art Installation

Hi Folks: Bryane and I want to thank everyone who helped get the magnificent show up for viewing at FCD in Falls Church.
The team (and it truly was a team effort) worked hard to get art ready and install it on Tuesday and Wednesday. We can all be proud that we have helped add Art to what is already going to be an exciting and attractive venue starting with a soft opening on July 1, 2017. There are currently over 80 pieces of art ranging in size from 6 inches square to 3 feet by 6 feet. Needless to say, we are all tired and a bit overwhelmed but anxious to get going in Falls Church in affiliation with a great crew already there (including Michael, Lorenzo and Jim). Let me also introduce Jason Davis. Jason, as you will soon see, is a most welcome addition to the Lalo family. Chips

SOME CHANGES TO LURAY GALLERY

Effective on June 1, 2017 there have been changes to the Studio Bee Gallery (Lalo’s Retail Art Gallery) in Luray. Jim Mayes, the owner of the Warehouse Art Gallery (“WAG”) and a Lalo Member, had asked that the Expressions Room be returned to its original purpose at WAG as an activity and all purpose room. He also suggested that Lalo receive a display wall in WAG’s largest gallery room. This offer to change from the Expressions Room at WAG to space in the Main Gallery was accepted by the Licksons on behalf of Lalo. The change means that Lalo space at WAG would be reduced, but that artwork on display is now moved to the Main Gallery and, in the opinion of Bryane Lickson, Lalo’s Chief Curator and Jim Mayes, the result would be better visibility for Lalo artists. Karen Weinberg, Lalo artist, now has her alcohol and ink on glass pieces on display in WAG’s Main Gallery. Her works went up on May 31, 2017 and will remain, unless sold, until mid-July. Bryane said she expects that Lalo will rotate member artists onto the new Lalo Wall in Luray so artists will have the benefit of their work being seen in WAG’s Main Gallery. “While we’re a little sad at losing our own room at WAG in Luray, we’re delighted that we have moved to a wall in the Main Gallery,” said Bryane. “I think in the long run, this will be better exposure for Lalo artists,” she added.

Juried Show Postponed

Lalo’s “Call to Artists” Fall Show “Autumns Patchwork Quilt” has been postponed until Fall, 2017, due to technical circumstances beyond our control. We regret that it was necessary, however, we will have a Spring Call to Artists Show “Blossoms of Spring” prior to the Fall event in 2017. We will post the details of this as soon as they are available. The interest, support and passion that each artist who entered the Fall 2016 “Call” shows that the mission of our organization to “Let Art Live On” is a vital one and that artists and others continue to be an integral part of maintaining the synergy that we share with one another.”
