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!
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.
