Unifying city Art exhibits in windows of unleased businesses a quick take on talent in town.
The Glendale Area Temporary Exhibitions Project (GATE), along with the city of Glendale and local property owners, has contrived a symbiotic relationship that promotes local emerging and established artists and brings beauty and culture to downtown Glendale by replacing “for lease” signs in temporarily vacant business spaces with thought-provoking, smile-inspiring artworks.

Artist Srboohie Abajian never knows when inspiration might strike her. For instance, an idea will sometimes flicker in her mind while she’s driving, causing her “to stop and get any paper I find in the car and write very fast,” she said.
Inspiration for her recent art work, on display in a window near the northeast corner of Broadway at Orange Street. at 180 Broadway in Glendale, presented itself by way of observation. “It is a social commentary on how we live,” Abajian said.

GATE was happy to work with GYST Ink to put on their acclaimed Professional Practices Workshop which was held in the Fall at the Glendale Public Library. Throughout the eight-week class, 14 emerging artists learned the essential business skills that come with building an art practice. At the end of the class students met individually with curators, critics, and gallery owners to get feedback on their portfolios. See below for pics from the curator reviews which were held in one of GATE’s exhibition spaces before the installation of INCREMENTS, our inaugural show.
