Saturday stroll on Santa Fe (on bike)
Another wonderful day in downtown Los Angeles. Hopped on the bike and followed this guy from the Historic Core to the Arts District on this fine Fall afternoon. Road down to Sante Fe and visited a few galleries. Special thanks to Wilding Cran for letting me in even though they weren't open yet and still preparing for tonight's opening.
It's great to have these two galleries in the same building: popped in next door at CB1 to see the work of Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia and Timothy Nolan. A gentle suggestion for CB1 and Rosamund Felson: install a bike rack in your ample hall or entrance way and you will be rewarded by many bicycle riding art lovers.
Next stop was Wilding Cran, where the two feisty pups inside were a noisy doorbell and got the owner's attention, who kindly let me in even though they were still setting up for tonight's opening. The artist of the hour, Jeremy Everett, was there installing a video piece in the back and spent some time giving me some background on the work. It's a terrific show. Bon chance!
Plopped my bike on the floor and had a stroll through the galleries. The projection in the back room is wonderful and strange—a milk truck crash in the desert. Great stuff.
