took in a fair amount of openings last night in culver city with chuck, ian and madison. i dare say we spent more time on the road getting there, than actually taking in art..but, such is life in L.A. come to think of it...drive-by galleries just might be the next wave..(you heard it here first!)
madison and me at george billis
at our first pit stop, george billis, we ran into my favorite rock star art buddy, carol es. i usually prefer ending our nights at this gallery because it seems much more intimate than many of the other venues. the art never seems to disappoint either, which usually leaves me feeling the hour+ commute was actually worth it.

we also checked out the walter maciel gallery, taylor de cordoba, sixspace and lightbox (who also happened to have a live band and an honest to goddess kegger in the adjoining lot..no jello shots, though, i was bummed)
my favorite stop was gallery revisited, in silverlake (minus the parking, which was a bear and a half) wound up buying some very affordable art to give as gifts (or not?)....and unlike culver city, we had a bigger variety of places to eat afterward. one of the mexican joints even had armed guards out front...gave me that warm, fuzzy down home sorta feelin'. aaaahh...nothin' says home cookin' like a pistol packin' bouncer to greet you with a face only mama could love..
