I have been busy as a bee! Had a great trip to LA last weekend. Both Aaron (www.aaroncastro.com) and I had pieces in Cannibal Flower Traveling Group Show at Infusion Gallery & drove down to check out the scene...really liked the vibe, the art & the people who run it (always a plus). We also connected with the good people at the Hive Gallery in downtown LA & they were generous enough to offer both Aaron & myself places in both the July & August shows. The Hive is a good outfit, filled to the rafters with good art, and we're happy to be on board with them. So, fasten yr seatbelts, we'll be hittin the 101 again Saturday morning, for the 12 hour roundtrip drive from our fair Santa Cruz fairyland to the crazy-fun/apocalyptic playground that is LA. We should be arriving, if all goes according to plan, with plenty of time to make the Saturday night opening...so if you're in the area, we encourage you to come out and play with us!
The details are as follows: Saturday night, July 7thy, from 8pm-12:30 am. Location: The Hive Gallery, 729 S. Spring St., Los Angeles. Details are on the postcard below, or check out www.thehivegallery.com.
Other stuff happening in the now:
