I’m very happy to announce the scheduling of my first L.A. show since moving back here a month ago!
Opening on Saturday, March 5, 2011, at Hold UP Art Gallery in downtown L.A. (located in one of my favorite areas, Little Tokyo), I’ll be exhibiting a considerable amount of brand-new work…about 2 – 3 times more pieces than my last show at The 4th Wall Gallery in Dallas this past January – March. Simply put, it’s going to be a pretty exciting show, for a lot of reasons:
For one, this is the first L.A. show I’ve booked since being back in town (there are others being discussed, as well), and I’m really looking forward to having all my hometown friends and collectors come on out and celebrate (and out of town guests, as well). And Hold UP Art is a fantastic space — opened at the beginning of 2010, Hold UP Art Gallery is quickly establishing itself as a “destination gallery” in the genres of Urban, Pop, and Contemporary art. In the short span of time that they’ve been open, they’ve already completed a major expansion of their space (it’s beautiful!), and have put on some incredible shows. Case in point: they recently finished a major show of new works by acclaimed Urban artist Justin Bua that was opened to a packed house. Owners Brian Lee and Ben Kaufman have put all their passion into this new gallery…and speaking as an artist, it really shows. Big props to Brian and Ben! (gallery info and address below)
Second, while this will be a full-throttled THH70 show, the gallery and I will be curating the exhibit to include the work of several additional artists who are very near and dear to my heart, and whose work will add a whole other level of intensity to the show. Consider them “very special guests”, as well as an integral piece to what we’re going to make this show into. I’m not listing any names just yet…but, you’ll find out once the show gets a little closer. :-)
And last — not content in waiting until March to display my work, the gallery has already taken possession of EIGHT paintings of mine to make available & exhibit NOW, a full five months before the show opens. For all of you in Los Angeles, or if you’ll be in town visiting, make sure to stop on by!
