I know, I know. I haven't been a very diligent, ack, blogger lately. I've been too busy working on my own stuff, and honestly, I'm fine with that. BUT this weekend, two of my favorite artists are having big shows that you MUST SEE! Leigh Salgado and Ellen Schinderman both made my best of 2014 art list. The talent, intellect and wit of these two artists never ceases to engage me. Their work is time-consuming, painstaking, inevitably gorgeous, and quite often sublime. They are a source of endless inspiration. Both shows are opening tomorrow night (2/7/2015), but the galleries are just about a 20 minute drive from each other (if you use Clueless logic).
BLISSFUL DEFLOWERING is Leigh Salgado's show at:
170 S. La Brea Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
opening reception Feb. 7th, 6-9pm
Rochelle Bottelo is showing as well
STITCH FETISH 3 is a massive group show of woven, knitted erotica
curated by Ellen Schinderman. It will feature her 6 foot tall needlework of Wonder Woman. There will be over 30 artists!
729 S. Spring Street
Los Angeles, CA 90014
Opening Feb. 7th, 8-11pm
