REHAB @ yacht club gallery
Spend enough time doing anything and you’ll probably, eventually, begin to hate it … this holds true for art as well. But after the reactionary period and the runaway period, there can be a love rekindled.
(I couldn't ask for a better ending.)
So if you couldn't make it out to our last show I will give you some spoiler pics, seeing it was just a one night show. I think we saved our best show for the end and are super happy with the outcome! For all those who made it out to the shows, a big thanks! I feel very satisfied with my original intent of the space: to show local with national artists, and number two: to show that anyone can make things happen in this city if you take initiative. It has been a lot of fun and very rewarding curating these shows and bringing in some wonderful talent. I hate to get all sentimental, but the gallery has been an opportunity to show some of the art that I have been really into lately and has rekindled a new love for this city. It is oh so easy, trust me, to just sit back and say what you like and what you don't like about shows these days, but once you are on the other side it is definitely a different story. I would love to continue some sort of space in LA but I will have to see how things work out and if I can marry any rich movie stars...kiddin! Oh, also a special shout out to Gallery 40000
in chicago for driving out and contributing an artist for this show and also the first one. This is a prime example of the possibilities that are out there if you just do a little digging.....
For now...enjoy the pics. Thanks again.
