Samuel Freeman Gallery - Culver City Arts District

By

Samuel Freeman gallery is a contemporary art space for solo and group exhibitions of painting, sculpture, photography and film by emerging and established artists. The gallery works closely with a select group of artists based predominantly in Los Angeles, while embracing new opportunities to work with emerging artists from around the globe. Their relationships with the artists they show vary between full-service representation to creative partnership.

Conceptually, the design creates a space that allows for an intimate viewing experience of the artworks. To transition from outside to inside is to enter the world of Samuel Freeman: a world that is private, calm, welcoming, and conducive to the quality of art viewing experience the owner seeks to provide. By maintaining the existing atrium space, but making its walls completely transparent and even retractable, the overall design unfolds gradually, creating an intriguing experience of outdoor/indoor circulation that encourages viewers to both linger and explore. Leaving the kinetic energy of La Cienega Blvd. behind one enters the private, calm and welcoming world of Samuel Freeman. The dissolved line between interior and courtyard affords a private connection back to the outside world encouraging guests to linger and explore this unique art viewing space.
