Formerly located at Bergamot Station Art Center, Laura Korman Gallery's exhibitions will continue to be online as of September, 2017. You can check our 1stdibs and Artsy pages for new work. Our gallery offers a mindful approach to participating within the international and local art markets, showcasing the work of contemporary artists. The works of art encourage viewers to connect deeply with the universality of the human experience.
Korman’s artist roster highlights the works of emerging and mid-career artists with a keen eye for the pulse of contemporary society. Whether through vibrant color, social commentary, or innovative structural techniques, these artists offer thought-provoking imagery across a variety of media.
Laura Korman is a Los Angeles native whose relationship with the arts is a family tradition. For her father, comedy veteran Harvey Korman, creativity was a way of life. And after growing up immersed in the talents of Hollywood, his daughter forged her own artistic path.
Korman received her B.A. from Scripps College in Psychology and Italian, and earned her M.A. from New York University in Childhood Education and Special Education. By combining her interests in education and art, she built a career in arts administration, sales, and marketing as a Gallery Director at TAG Gallery for three years, before beginning a gallery of her own in 2015.
Korman is active in the Los Angeles community; she has served on the Santa Monica Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) as a board member, was a steering committee member of the Bergamot Station Gallery Cultural Association (BSGCA), and a member of Buy Local Santa Monica and the Kiwanis Club of Santa Monica. As an arts advocate, Korman was selected for the Arts for LA "Arts Education" track of the 2016-17 ACTIVATE Arts Advocacy Leadership Fellowship Program, in which she was dedicated to making the arts a core in K-12 public education. She also initiated a "Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship" for public school students in the Santa Monica - Malibu Unified School District under the Kiwanis Club in 2017. Korman is a member of the National Art Education Association (NAEA) and she serves the international art community as a member of the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD).
