Gallery Visits in LA - 2

Another stop last week was Flower Pepper Gallery in Pasadena. I kinda walked in while they were dismantling their previous show and prepping for this weekend’s opening of "The Brave Ones"

The show that I partially viewed “Skate and Create”, curated by G. James Daichendt, features work with the theme of skating and graffiti, which the gallery assistant curator mentioned, often go hand in hand.
A a quick view:

Additionally they had some nice work tucked around the corner of the main viewing space:

Additionally, I got to meet the super talented and lovely artist Poppy Lawman who also assists in curating at Flower Pepper. Her sculptural work is amazing! She integrates delicate materials - like paper and thread - with a sense of wonder into each of her pieces. They are miniature worlds of superbly crafted love and imagination. Please check her out and follow her on instagram! (@poppylawman)

Gallery visits in LA - 1

Visiting a few local galleries while I’m in town. I managed two last week at the suggestion of some friends.

The most adorable art critic Daniel Rolnik just opened his gallery on Ocean Ave. in Santa Monica. My friend Jacob suggested he has the biggest smile in Cali - I might have to agree with him! Daniel is a really awesome guy and such a huge art and print enthusiast - you can tell right away, it just makes him glow.
