Back on the streets and at galleries: favorites week ending 07.23.17
The pup was feeling much better after a couple of weeks of being sick-ish and blue. We took it slow, but had some good walks around the neighborhood. I've been noticing a little graff war going on between a few writers. It's like a soap opera. Although I quite enjoyed ONOES, it was tagged "You get no love!"
Pup took lots of breaks on our walks. A new RESNT tag went up overnight in the alley by the loft.
Went to a very good talk between artist Sune Woods and curator Erin Christovale at Art + Practice. The discussion centered around the work of Al Loving, currently on display in their gallery space.
POST has been doing a month of different programming each day. It's been a whirlwind month of art. I've caught several shows, including one my museum co-worker Kim Weller was in. Burt! She shared the space with a gorgeous coral and green landscape.
More graff war drama: "I'ma slap you!" tagged across.
Adam works at Stumptown. Left his nametag for a Buzz Feed visit in the alley.
Enjoyed the big summer group show at CB1. A photo album of my favorite images are on the FB page here. Especially liked this abstract by Alexander Kroll and figurative work by Laura Krifka.
I've taken a picture of this sign in the outer Arts Disrict several times over the years. The fence has been recently painted, but it thankfully remains the same.
I was in the Bendix Building a few times again this week including for Helen Chung's solo show at POST—I especially loved the painted aluminum sculptures. A couple of days later was a group show that included some charming cardboard shoes. And I also had a nice mini tour of Gary Brewer's studio down the hall.
Caught the opening of Cabin Pressure, curated by Quinn Harrelson at BBQ LA. There was a whole pig roasting in a cinderblock pit. Oh la la. The show is great. This post's thumbnail is also from the exhibition.
