An Afternoon at the LA Art Show


Saturday I went downtown to the LA Convention Center to see as much of the LA Art Show as I could see in an afternoon. It took place in a huge space and seemed endless. I suppose one can't expect to take it all in in a few hours, yet I made sure that I looked into every booth - but so much of it was a blur.


A few booths stood out to me, such as the Winterowd Gallery and the Erik Thomsen Gallery; both very well set up and elegantly arranged.

The Winterowd Gallery has some beautiful Charlie Burk Grass paintings.



I was also captivated by Sung-Tae Park's mesh wall sculptures at the Pyo Gallery Booth. They made such beautiful shadows.


One of the best aspects of the day was running into people I know in the crowd!

You can look through a catalog of the participating galleries online.

I had hoped to get o the Art Los Angeles Contemporary Fair on Sunday, but sadly my poor dog had to go to the pet emergency room for back pain. He's on medication now and feeling a little better and will see his regular vet today about further treatment. What happened to cause the injury remains a mystery.

The Arcadia Gallery booth was beautiful!
I like Lee Nam's work, but I'm so in love with painting and drawing that all other mediums have a hard time holding my attention.
It was lots of fun seeing you there too!
