If you are an artist from Eastern Europe and feel that you brought with you the seeds of your homeland's culture to plant them in Western soil, please participate in our exhibition Art Ark - From East to West, modeled after Noah's Ark and share with us the universal language of art.

A recent testimonial from Find Your Roots participant, artist Frank Whipple: "I just wanted to let you know that my Open House event was a lot of fun, and really successful on many levels. I want to thank you and the community in West Hollywood for providing such a nice opportunity and for a wonderful space for us to put on our little show."
We received a great testimonial from Doctor Laura Kristan Wilhelm about our International Women's Day event:
"Stunning event at the PDC on Sunday!!! I liked the singers, the paintings, the wardrobe stylist, the chocolate goodies, and everything else."
A touching testimonial from our Represented artist Dr. Mark Valinsky: "I was very honored to be a part of this art exhibition. Thousands of people attended the overall event at the prestigious Bergamot Station Art Complex in Santa Monica, California. There was a consistent overflow crowd of art enthusiasts visiting the Sulkin/Secant Gallery. It was the best attended art showing ever, closing almost 2 hours later than anticipated. I want to personally thank Ms. Lark Larisa Pilinsky, Gallery President and Mr. Tony Clark, art expert Trustee of the Hollywood Arts Council for a memorable and highly successful event."
Also please read this excerpt from a letter by Fahriye Mahrenholz:
"LarkGallery is an incredible example of international collaboration, work toward mutual understanding, and a model for public discourse on social topics through the arts. We strongly support LarkGallery Online. It provides an invaluable service to the public and organizations such as ours."
