l.a. art show



chuck and i ventured out to the l.a. art show yesterday.....we found a pocket of time where the weather was kind to us, neither soggy nor chilly. this is the first time either of us have experienced the fair, and now i think i'll wanna go every year. it's just a great way to one stop shop, pure and simple. i saw some rauschenberg, warhol, johns and nevelson. that ALONE was worth admission.

aside from the george billis booth, which had my all time fave californian artist carol es, i think i died and went to heaven when we stumbled upon the william shearburn gallery booth, showcasing both tim liddy and ciao fonseca's work. butter, i tell you!

of course, i couldn't help but stop by the gallery c booth (shown above and below) we stopped and chatted with the gallery director, sugar brown (great name, eh?) and was pleasantly shocked to hear they had sold a number of my pieces. so, YEA.



cause for celebration, i thought.....so we found a cool little mexican joint called gilbert's nearby to whoop it up....fernando the bartender was a doll, and the homemade tortilla chips are to DiE for.....


mwaH, @ gilbert's

I found...
90% of the time if the chips are good in a mexican restaurant I have found that the food is also very good!

congrats on the sales, and thanks for the plug. now you get to have sugar brown as your director. she sure was great at my gallery as well.

i am also a big fan of ciao fonseca. LOVE him. i saw those tim liddy pieces and the ciao fonsecas and thought of you. i knew you'd like them. :)

when i was at the vermont studio center in 2004, someone there compared my work to ciao fonseca and i just about died. gave me ego fuel for a long long time.

i LOVE the new work you've been posting on your blog lately. I better get more of your work if I know what's good for me.

well, it's easy to plug the biggest art star in l.a.!!!!! my pleasure, luv...

i think my fave was the game box piece by liddy ('park and drive') i was drooling all over it!

and i can totally see why you were compared to ciao!!!! geometric patterns placed in seemingly simplistic compositions....buttuh!

thanks for your sweetness! you have an open invite to my studio, ya know....and i'll even serve you crumpets-whatever those are!
