Silvana Art Gallery, at 1731 W. Glenoaks Blvd. in Glendale, is the culmination of a longtime dream of gallery owner and curator Silva Ambar, who along with her sister Hasik Sarkisian celebrated its grand opening reception on May 1. Previously, the gallery existed solely as an online operation.
Ambar’s gallery has a variety of art, from the paintings of traditional Texas artist Tod Williams, to Los Angeles native, oil painter and en plein air artist Jennifer McChristian, to the miniature sculptures of Ricky Maldonado and the etchings of Tigran Sahakyan, with his piece “Old Yerevan.”
“A lot of the clients that we have really need to come see the originals,” Ambar said. “This is a great location to open a gallery. In Glendale, we don’t have this type of gallery.”
