Everything but the Kitschen Sync

Friday night was the opening night reception of "Everything but the Kitschen Sync" show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. I was there almost the whole time and sometimes it was so crowded you could barely move. I promised photos of friends who showed up, so from top to bottom: the first photo is of Laura De Leon and myself -- you can see my painting in the background. The next photo is of Everett Mendes, Raymond Y Newton, and gourd artist Heather Rasmussen. The third photo is of Lisa Yuan, Tom Vaillancort, and myself in the store section of the gallery where they purchased a bubble-blowing monkey and Crows candy (they're like black licorice jujubes). The store part is a great place to buy unique gifts like bobble head dolls, candy cigarettes, anything with a Mexican wrestler on it or a sock monkey. The art show was great, too. There was some amazing art and so much of it was sold that night! I liked one piece, and by the time I showed it to someone, it was sold (not that I was going to buy it, but still...). It was a great time and the show will be up for a month, so if you didn't get to the opening, or if you need some candy cigarettes, or maybe a temporary tattoo, stop by and see some of the best art in LA. The art is actually on the gallery's website so if you're out of the area, you can check it out here.
