The work of artist James Scott Geras’ first show was a complete sellout, breaking all records for the gallery. Soon after, James was signed to an exclusive contract with Artbeats, Inc., an international poster art publisher with over 28,000 galleries worldwide. In addition, James appeared in Visions Art Quarterly, and was recognized by the L.A. Weekly on their list of the Top 100 Artists of the 90s
Exhibitions include the Second Annual Robert J. Lieb Memorial Art Show in Beverly Hills benefiting the Concerned Foundation for Cancer Research, the famed “Block Party on Rodeo Drive” in Beverly Hills, and the Western Heritage Museum for the Options House Celebrity Benefit hosted by entertainer Randy Travis. Geras was recognized as the only artist invited to show his work at the Bob Hope Recognition Dinner in Long Beach. Later, James was again asked back for his second “ Block Party on Rodeo Drive,” as well as being invited for his third consecutive year to participate in the Celebrity Art Auction held at the Rotunda on Rodeo Drive, where James received the second highest bid for the evening. James has also participated in several International Art Expos, including New York, Paris, Barcelona and Tokyo, Art Expo Las Vegas. The New York Art Expo, the “Women in Show Business for Children” celebrity benefit, the APLA Backlot Party held at Universal Studios, the Long Beach Celebrity Art Auction benefiting the Heart Association, and “Divine Design’ at the Pacific Design Center to benefit Project Angel Food. In addition, the original Fixation piece, “Diva Lounging in Hell,” was featured as the album cover for recording artists Spin Cycle, an exclusive champagne and chocolate reception hosted by the Hotel Group of America in San Francisco at the Diva Hotel on Union Square, and was commissioned by the City of Long Beach to design a poster commemorating the “41st Annual Grecian Festival by the Sea.”
James has created a series of highly stylized fine art photographic images culminating in the project, FIXATION. The new works explore the uniqueness of the individual, and allowed for exploration of topics other than what James was best known for. But while the subject matter may be different, the overall theme of Geras’ earlier works is still apparent: however, the fragmentation of image is now seen more subtly within the photograph itself. When viewing the pieces, you begin to notice intricacies within the frame and nuances that make each observation a little different than previously seen.
James lent his artistic efforts at “Angel Art” to benefit Project Angel Food. As a bonus, the work was noticed by a Los Angeles newsperson, which in turn led to Geras appearing on Los Angeles’ highly-rated television program, ‘The Morning Show, where he was interviewed by film critic and entertainment reporter Sam Rubin. James has also appeared on ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, as well as CNN.
Geras was chosen to photograph celebrity portraits for the Until There’s a Cure Foundation. These portraits; To be used in their worldwide advertising campaign for “The Bracelet”, have appeared on billboards and in major magazines such as Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, and Vogue.
