Crashing into the art scene ten years ago, Corey Helford Gallery has always served up fascinating shows.
There is pretty much only one way to describe the 10th Anniversary Gala Group Exhibition now at Corey Helford Gallery in DTLA – and that’s spectacular. So don’t miss the chance to turn out for this feast of an exhibition, closing this week.
Featuring the work of a wide variety of artists exhibited at Corey Helford over the years, “Ten Years of Amazing Artists: Corey Helford Gallery and Friends Celebrate!” is a terrific retrospective, a kaleidoscopic survey created by curated by Jan Corey Helford & Caro of the diverse artists shown here.

Culling from the gallery’s catalog of artists, the show highlights an emphasis on the cutting edge, the surreal, the subversive, and the simply beautiful.
The gallery grew from a personal collection of Jan Corey Helford, who founded the gallery with husband Bruce. Previously housed in Culver City, the larger space has led to richer shows, with space not merely filled but with art work but space used to create an immersive experience of pop surrealism, street art, and all works contemporary.
So sit back and enjoy a look at some of the stellar pieces that represent the gallery’s exhibitions over the years, then head downtown for the closing this weekend.
