Los Angeles Trip
So I fly out to California and spend a few days making the rounds at the different galleries, . . .leading up to the Blab Show at Copro Nason Gallery in Santa Monica.
I stopped by Gallery 1988 for Luke Chueh's show, talked with Anthony Ausgang, and I spent a day with Chet Zar. We visited La Luz De Jesus gallery for Miles Thompson's show on Friday night
and stopped in at Merry Karnowsky's Gallery and had a brief conversation with Kent Williams, who I haven't seen in almost 20 years, he had some beautiful paintings up.
Visited Gary Pressman and saw a great collection of art.
Spent the next day with Dave Chung, Dim Sum in Chinatown, a visit to Thinkspace gallery, Billy Shire Fine Arts, a brief conversation with Billy Shire, and dinner with Miles Teves and his wife Malena and the very talented Bill Basso. both Miles and Bill had pieces in the Blab Show.
The Blab Show on Saturday night was packed, . . . I got there late, . . .but I managed to meet Robert Williams and his wife, Gary Baseman, Natalia Fabia, Fred Stonehouse, Ryan Heshka, and Long Gone John.
