Joni, Sidney and Kalyn celebrated the first issue of ForYourArt’s Benefit Edition, a selection of artworks published in support of various non-profit organizations across Los Angeles, at the Soho House on Monday evening. As part of their ongoing mission to cultivate arts patronage and cultural engagement, ForYourArt Founder Bettina Korek and Exhibition Coordinator Sarah Williams curated an exhibition of 128 editions from over 100 artists.
Hanging on the twisting hallways of the SoHo house were artworks by Gemini artists Jonathan Borofsky, Chris Burden and David Hockney. There were also works by John Baldessari, Toba Khedoori and Bill Viola, all printed by Gemini G.E.L. to benefit the Orange County Museum of Art, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles and the Ojai Music Festival, respectively. The Toba Khedoori etching was the artist’s first collaboration with the Gemini workshop, made in 2005 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters Los Angeles, for which Joni is a long-time board member. Ayn and Ellen Grinstein and Gemini Sales Director Kenturah Davis were in attendance along with Getty Deputy Director Andrew Perchuk.
