“Zero to Sixty is a show of what’s best at Corey Helford Gallery and what’s to come — new works from the
artists who’ve shown with the gallery from the beginning and a host of works from artists we just love, like
Joe Sorren, Todd Schorr, Greg Simkins, Kent Williams, Nick Walker, Sas and Colin Christian, and also some
artists who have never shown with us before, like Meggs and Kazuki Takamatsu,” explains gallery owners
Jan and Bruce Helford.

One of the show highlights will be a 53” x 40” painting created by San Francisco artist Eric Joyner. Internationally recognized for his paintings of robots and donuts, Joyner created the piece using digital technology to expand an original paint-by-number onto a giant giclée canvas.

For the opening night reception, over half of the artists will be in attendance to discuss their works and celebrate with guests, and the gallery will unveil an innovative surprise during the evening where guests will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive installation. Jan and Bruce Helford note, “We try to make every show a special event, so the bar is raised pretty high for this one.” Corey Helford’s first major group exhibition – more than 65 artists of the New Fine Art Movement – debuted in 2007 with Charity By Numbers, a show and charity auction for The Alliance For Children’s Rights.

Jan and Bruce Helford add “It made us realize the power and momentum of this art movement.”

Most recently, Corey Helford invited UK street artist D*Face for his first Los Angeles solo exhibition in April
2011, entitled “Going Nowhere Fast”. One of the many highlights of epic aPOPcalyptic sold-out show was the
“Cheat Death” tombstone that D*Face strategically placed on Charlie Sheen’s Walk-of-Fame star in Hollywood.
