DeFrenS is a luxury home consignment showroom nestled in Westlake Village that has recently expanded their space to include a brand new art gallery. This gallery is beautifully lit to accentuate each art piece featured. The showroom is fully staffed and open to the public Monday through Friday from 10-5pm and Saturday 11-4pm, so the gallery has 6 days of visibility to shoppers. Each exhibit includes marketing and a lovely opening reception equipped with live music and refreshments for artists to invite their collectors and debut their art in the gallery. 

DeFrenS Art Gallery is excited to host “Autumn Impressions” featuring landscape art created by local San Fernando and Conejo Valley Artists.

Golden palettes of beautiful valleys, rolling hills and mountains have inspired artists for generations. Artist’s images could include wooded paths, delicate autumn sunlight, misty lakes and fall colors of a setting sun. Fall landscapes as expressed by the imagination of valley artists. Art can be 2D mediums of watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings, ink, or multimedia. 

9 artists will be selected to participate and participating artists will be notified by August 9th.
