TWIN PEAKS Art Exhibition is a Place Both Wonderful and Strange
I've got good news. In the mood for some damn good art to put on your walls at home? Well, there's a gallery that might be able to help but it's filled with seeeeecrets.
The Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, California is presenting an art exhibition called "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me," curated by Rob Wilson in association with Twin Peaks co-creator and director David Lynch. The exhibition will run from April 21 through May 12, 2012 to honor the 20th anniversary of Lynch's 1992 film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me that served as a prequel to the ABC TV series Twin Peaks that ran from 1990 to 1991.
After a previous Twin Peaks exhibition called "In the Trees" was held in February 2011 in downtown Los Angeles, Copro contacted David Lynch about doing a sequel exhibition featuring the darker side of Twin Peaks that was explored in Fire Walk With Me. Lynch liked the idea and discussed it with the producer of the first show was was brought on board as curator for the event.
The "Fire Walk With Me" exhibition will also feature artwork from Lynch along with stars Grace Zabriskie (Sarah Palmer), Richard Beymer (Benjamin Horne) and James Marshall (James Hurley), unreleased music from Twin Peaks and surprise guests. The gallery is located in part of what used to be a train station, which fits the theme of Fire Walk With Me since the character of Laura Palmer was murdered in an abandoned train car by the tracks.
