Openings: Amy Sol – “The Wilderness Buffet” @ Copro Gallery

We stopped by to check out the opening of Amy Sol’s (interviewed) show “The Wilderness Buffet” in the large room at Copro Gallery last weekend. While taking in Sol’s new body of work, one can’t help but get drawn into her world of soft colors and and serene landscapes. We couldn’t take our eyes off “Sea Ice Caravel” (above), one of her largest paintings to date and a prime example of the increased detail Sol has put into the pieces for this show. It’s also […]

Teaser: Amy Sol @ Copro Gallery

Amy Sol (interviewed) sent us a first look at her upcoming show at Copro Gallery in November.  It’s been a while since we have seen a solo from Amy (last December at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery), and even that one was a break from her usual wood pieces.  That’s why we are especially looking forward to this new body of work.  The Las Vegas-based artist tells us that she will have be focusing on her love for the desert and will explore this particular theme in […]

AM had the pleasure of attending the opening of Crazy 4 Cult 3D show at Gallery 1988 (LA) a couple weeks ago.

But what we enjoyed were some new cult films such as The Jerk, Never […]
