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.

Wonderful work by Maureen Selwood at Rosamund Felsen Gallery, a tribute to Pussy Riot.

Was very happy to catch the last day of Maureen Selwood’s first solo exhibition at Rosamund Felsen Gallery. Kick ass feminist art!

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!

Jeremy Everett's Double Pour exhibition runs November 14–January 9—go see it!

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.

Headed back my part of #DTLA, with a quick hello at the new American Tea Room and a slow ride by of One Santa Fe.

New American Tea Room location on Santa Fe is posh, if "a bit over wrought," as Verity said. The neighborhood is seriously changing, and super fast.

Biked through the courtyard of One Santa Fe to check out the progress. The aesthetic is meh to me, but happy that there are new buisnesses.

Happy One Santa Fe has bike racks, but guys, a few more please!
