Copro Gallery presents the group art exhibition, "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me" curated by Rob Wilson in association with David Lynch. This exhibition will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of David Lynch’s film “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” (the prequel to the landmark television series created by David Lynch and Mark Frost).  February, 2011, an exhibition was held to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Twin Peaks series at Clifton’s Brookdale in downtown Los Angeles titled "In the Trees". However, since Clifton’s is a working restaurant, the art could only be displayed for a single weekend. Copro contacted David Lynch about doing a sequel exhibition featuring the darker side of Twin Peaks which was explored in the movie Fire Walk with Me. David liked the idea and discussed it with the producer of the first show who we brought on board as curator for this event.

This new exhibition will include all of the artists from the previous show, and will also expand it to a gallery setting with an artist reception featuring unreleased music from Twin Peaks and many suprise guests! The fact that the gallery is located in part of what used to be a train station, fits the theme of Fire Walk with Me particularly well since Laura Palmer was murdered in an abandoned train car by the tracks which became ground zero for the TWIN PEAKS franchise.

At present, participating artists include:  Josh Agle (Shag) - Brett Amory - Esao Andrews - Glenn Barr - Chris Berens - Ben Balistreri - Tim Biskup - Megan Brain - Andrew Brandou - Chris Buzelli - Scott C. - Amy Casey - Nicoletta Ceccoli - Paul Chatem - Sas Christian - Colin Christian - Albert Cuellar - Lori Earley - Meesha Goldberg - James Hahn - Ryan Heshka - Stella Im Hultberg - Jessica Joslin - Andy Kehoe - Frank Kozik - Alice Lodge - Ver Mar - Chris Mars - Dan May - Jeff McMillan - Tara McPherson - Margaret Meyer - Billy Norrby - Annie Owens - Chris Peters - Dan Quintana - Carlos Ramos - Matt Rota - Anna Skarbek - Owen Smith - Nathan Spoor - Brian M. Viveros - Keith Weesner - Eric White - Pamela Wilson - Martin Wittfooth - Chet Zar - Rick Zar & more

Also featuring stop-motion animation legend Bruce Bickford's (Frank Zappa’s “Baby Snakes”) scale model sculptures of the town of Twin Peaks. David Lynch and three artists who had acting roles in the film and series, Grace Zabriskie (Sarah Palmer) and Richard Beymer (Benjamin Horne) and James Marshall (James).
