Love Show Florence

Join us for the opening reception of the 1st Annual Love Show on the Central Coast! A visual arts exhibit that explores love in all its myriad forms and fashions.

This event takes place as part of the 2nd Saturday Gallery Tour.

Inspired by the LOVE SHOW in Portland, Oregon, a large open-call show, implemented by Ben Pink and the Launch Pad Gallery in 2006. Its aim was "to create a safe and engaging space to highlight the many different types and attitudes abound about love." The show ran annually for a number of years, at one point outgrowing the original space, and featuring over 300 artists! Love was spread by collection of food and clothing donations at the event, which were distributed to local area charities.

The last Portland Love Show occurred in February of 2018- but its spirit lives on elsewhere, cities such as Eugene, here in Florence, and at galleries across the country. Let's make this a regular thing!

The exhibit will be on display from February 9th through April 6th. You're welcome to come visit during Open Studio times, events open to the public, or by appointment.
