Openings: Clowns! @ Corey Helford Gallery

The Clowns! (previewed) show opened last night in Culver City and AM contributor Marcus was on hand to snap some photos. This group show had a pretty unique and strong lineup as Corey Helford teamed up with Stolenspace (UK) to exhibit artists from both sides of the Atlantic. Photos of all the work after the jump.

Openings: Candice Tripp @ Lazarides (Newcastle)

We were pretty impressed with the setup of Candice Tripp’s show (previewed) after seeing photos from the opening last night. Lazarides (Newcastle) really put time and effort into staging the pieces even using one of the images from her previous paintings as the wallpaper. Photos after the jump.

Openings: Tin, Kukula, Sas @ Copro Nason

Rounding up AM‘s whirlwind gallery tour of LA last weekend was Copronason’s show of Kukula, Tin, and Sas Christian. The Santa Monica gallery was busy with three appealing artists at its opening this past Saturday. As usual, Sas Christian presented a quality, not quantity body of work. It was great to see her alluring works in person; those eyes are bigger than life! Kukula’s body of work looked even better in person than the images which we previewed last week. If you already had a […]

Openings: House Industries @ Subliminal Projects

This past Saturday night, Subliminal Projects was decked out in the typographical patterns of House Industries. The Delaware based group showcased a new collection of prints and patterns and transformed the gallery into a graphical delight that showcased just what some simple fonts can do. AM was invited to the opening night rock out with the beats of DJ Diabetic, who kept the night bumping way past closing time. For those who don’t know the Los Angeles based Subliminal Projects; its an amazing space owned/curated […]

Openings: Nate Frizzell, Scott Belcastro @ Cerasoli:LeBasse

Both Nate Frizzell and Scott Belcastro had show openings this past Saturday at Cerasoli:LeBasse.  AM dropped in on the opening and we hope you get a better feel of the work from the photos after the jump.  If you missed the opening, we would recommend dropping by Cerasoli:LeBasse to see this for yourself.  The shows run until November 29th.

Openings: Jose Parla @ Cristina Grajales

AM was in attendance Saturday night for the opening of Jose Parla’s first NYC solo show, entitled Layered Days at Cristina Grajales. In addition to the caligraphic abstract paintings and watercolors for which Parla has earned his reputation as one of urban art’s most sought-after artists, the exhibition also included several beautiful ceramic works, made in collaboration with the Ichi-Yo Gama family-owned Bizen-yaki factory in Japan. There was also a wall-sized mixed-medium installation of paintings, drawings, photography and more. Parla himself was on hand for […]

Openings: Hush @ Opus Gallery

Hush’s show Desensitized (previewed) opened up at Opus Gallery a couple nights ago. His return to Newcastle (where he studied Graphic Design & Illustrator at Newcastle school of Art & Design for 5 years) was marked by street installations and a exhibition of his characteristic melding of the asian influences of his travels with the style of UK street art. Photo of the opening after the jump.

Openings: The Drawing Room @ Thinkspace

Last night’s show “The Drawing Room” (previewed) at Thinkspace opened with a tremendous showing by art fans. The long line snaked outside from the beginning to end with the gallery packed to maximum capacity. Not only were the fans there to see Audrey Kawasaki (curator) & her work, they were there for the many other talented artists that participated in the show. Photos after the jump.

Openings: Faile – Lost in Glimmering Shadows

At an abandoned school house in Vauxhall, UK last night, Faile and Lazarides held a special opening reception for their new show: Lost In Glimmering Shadows. There was much speculation and rumors regarding their new works which included Wood Palettes and Prayer Wheels. AM recently previewed some exclusive images for the coming show, but we never could imagine what the final product would be… Judging from the last night’s tremendous opening, it’s apparent that Faile brought the “heavy lumber” directly from New York and transformed this schoolhouse […]

Openings: Greg Simkins – It Wanders West

Ever let your imagination run wild? Well you wouldn’t have a choice at a Craola show and this one was a stunner. Last night, Greg “Craola” Simkins premiered Part II of his “It Wanders…” show and AM was on hand to catch the opening reception. A lively crowd quickly packed Gallery 1988 to see the sold-out show. Greg was on hand to meet and greet his numerous fans. Taking time to speak and catch up with his fans is something that Greg tries to do […]
