To make up for my lack of gallery hopping at the end of 2010, I am attempting to fill my weekends with art show openings now. So on my To Do list this weekend is:
Friday night, The Great Showdowns by Scott C at Gallery 1988: Melrose. Always loved his wit and watercolors.Saturday afternoon, The Year of the Rabbit show at GR2 in Culver City. Its a group show including Yoskay Yamamoto and Mari Inukai in honor of the Lunar New Year.
Saturday night, Suggestivism curated by Nathan Spoor at the CSUF Grand Central Art Center in Santa Ana. A massive group show, including Audrey Kawasaki, Craola, and Tara McPherson.
"Conceptually speaking, the term “suggestivism” refers to the ability of an individual to pursue their purpose with an amplified understanding and sensitivity. The artists involved represent precisely this - a wave of purpose, working within the more fluid aspects of narrative or figurative arenas. Through the mere power of suggestion, the magic is transferred from one to another, engaging the world at large from the most vivid and evocative of visual realms."
Also Saturday night, Poster Peepshow: The Art of the Pinup at Nucleus in Alhambra. When are pinups not fun?
And Sunday will be the tribute show for Lisa Nguyen at CSULB.
We shall see how many I will actually make it to...
