Opening this Saturday, Santa Monica’s CoproGallery presents Fire Walk with Me, a group show featuring artworks inspired by the eerie world of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks.
Curated by Lynch and Rob Wilson, this exhibition commemorates the 20th anniversary of the film Fire Walk With Me, which served as a prequel to the cult TV series. Laura Palmer, Agent Dale Cooper, Bob, Audrey Horne and other characters have been lovingly crafted by into mixed media pieces, paintings and stunningly accurate dioramas made exclusively for this must-visit art event. Lynch himself contributed, with paintings and prints available for sale starting at just $100. There are also signed, limited edition black-and-white photographs taken by Richard Beymer, who played Ben Horne on the show AND Tony in West Side Story (talk about a charmed life!). Twin Peaks fans are a rabid bunch (with good reason), and many of the works have already been sold. So if you’re aiming to own a little piece of Lynch, fire walk on over to CoproGallery.
