Social Equity

Lark Gallery uses the conversations of color, shape, texture, and line to demonstrate that communication can be free of prejudice toward any language, religion, and philosophy. They apply this concept to their events including diverse international artists of all nationalities, races, and gender. Among the prominent exhibitors are persons with handicaps.

One of the modern philosophers said that only the wisdom and loving energy of women can safe our planet from the human and nature produced disasters. They bring our civilization up to a new level when humanity becomes associated with kindness to each other and mutual support of the different nations and religions and not the wars, gun violence, and hatred.

The role of women is crucial in the modern world in politics, economy, and human relations. The only way the women’s voices could be heard is if they themselves evolve to the next level of their human qualities and harmony inside them. Women have fought for their rights for many years. Now it is the time to realize that only the power of love without separation of men and women can can bring peace to our planet.

Women’s History Month At Lark Gallery

At the women’s history month Lark Gallery wants to not only show, as usual, women’s talents in art, music, and other creative fields, which are countless, but also to give women tools to develop their skills to live in inner harmony, be beautiful, peaceful and at the same time powerful in the society, acting from their open and forgiving heart. Besides the concert and art show, Lark Gallery is planning to have educational and creative workshops for women, woman’s support groups, rejuvenating yoga classes to teach women how to create and save physical and spiritual beauty, give them anti-aging tools, and teaching meditation classes. All of this will benefit not only women but also the community of West Hollywood.
