Hi folks! There's a lot going on this weekend for those of you who love the L.A. underground art scene!
For starters, there's the Year of the Tiger show at Giant robot GR2 this Saturday the 13th, featuring a cat and dog adoption--opening reception 6:30pm - 10pm.
There's also the Lucent L'amour "Lightning in a Paintcan" event featuring some of the best live painters in L.A. at the Shrine Auditorium on Saturday night 7pm - 4am. You'll have to buy tickets beforehand, and it's a little on the pricey side, so be prepared to shell out some serious dough. My girl Yuki Miyazaki's going to be live painting there, so check it out!
Don't miss out on the Dave McKean show "New Works Inspired by Early Cinema" this Saturday at Billy Shire Fine Arts in Culver City, opening reception 7-10pm. He'll also be doing a signing appearance at La Luz de Jesus Gallery tonight.
And I also got word from Yuki Miyazaki about a Valentine's show she's live painting at on Sunday at MI Alma Gallery in Silverlake (4106 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles), where you can get your portrait done by her, and see live performers, live music, and people dressed in Alice in Wonderland costumes. No cover charge! Sweet!
Also, heads up for next Saturday's Scion Installation and Video project "It Was On Earth That I Knew Joy," opening reception Saturday 7pm - 10pm at their pop-up gallery space in Culver City, 3521 Helms Ave. Two of my former classmates Steve Harrington and Justin Kreitemeyer will be showing. Exciting! Scion's really been turning out cool art exhibits lately--I really enjoyed the previous Papershapers exhibit and can't wait to see what they have in store for this exhibit.
