 “A community, once hidden, breaks through and rises unapologetically," comments Carlos Benitez, Gallerist of AC Gallery.

AC Gallery presents LGBTQ HERITAGE Past, Present, Future, a group exhibition dedicated to presenting the work of mixed media artists exploring queer identities. Sponsored by PRIDE Wellness, the first and only LGBTQ cannabis company, is curated by artist/activist Leon Mostovoy in partnership with artnet and Artsy.

 Artists working in an all-encompassing media spectrum from painting to drawing, photography to sculpture, installation to video and film, showcase the diversity that is a staple of the LGBTQ community. And just in time for Pride Month in Los Angeles and around the world, the exhibiting artists enliven a community once again with documentary photographs of former struggles communicating freely with brave portraits of today's queer individuals attempting to draw new connections for succeeding generations to follow - a heritage of works from a community set to help humanity remember the past, respect the present, and reassert the future.

"Ganz's global icons reveal the everlasting inspiration and impact of femininity," comments Carlos Benitez, Gallerist, AC Gallery

Rachel Ganz has been painting, drawing, and creating artwork since the age of four. Ganz was inspired by her love of Pop Culture and Ancient Egypt including her most recent exposure to the magnificent King Tut exhibit at the California Science Center this past year. Expressionistic paintings characteristic­ of ­Rachel Ganz’s oeuvre, including the artist's bold use of bright colors, striking design, thick paint, and high glosses bring the characters to life with their soulful eyes and charming faces will illuminate the White Cube exhibition space inside AC Gallery. Ganz will debut her latest paintings including 'Betty Boop' - a starlet of Pop Culture and more than 1930's Jazz Age flapper with her big-lashed flirty eyes and petite body responsible for showcasing a very savvy, sophisticated, and confident woman in animated form as well as the monumental 60x36 inch mixed media 'Nefertiti Holding Hand of Goddess Isis' - a painting that glorifies the Ancient Egyptian deities Queen Nefertiti and Goddess Isis, recognizing the religious revolution they helped construct in Ancient Egypt.

Global icons that have characterized feminine beauty and power - Nefertiti, Betty Boop, and others - will come together and draw the viewers' gaze into their eyes, allowing the feel, magic, and mystery of the past Ancient Egyptian to more current Pop Culture eras to emerge.
