“Bergamot Station” is the historical name for this modern gallery complex in Santa Monica. The site dates back to 1875 when it was a stop for the Red Line trolley running from Los Angeles to the Santa Monica Pier. In 1953, much to the cities transital demise the trolley cars stopped running and the site’s warehouse buildings became home to a celery packing operation, an ice-making plant, and later, a factory for the manufacture of water heaters. It is now home to the Santa Monica Museum of Art, Los Angeles Ballet, an architectural firm, graphic designers and many galleries.

“Eros,” was the first painting I showed at Bergamot Station. Representation by Grey McGear Modern at the Bergamot Arts Center in Santa Monica, California.Bergamot-Flageros_large
