Openings: MS Fundraiser for Tim Strazza @ Joshua Liner Gallery

We all hit bumps in the road, but with a little help we can all overcome any obstacles.

We helped sponsor a fundraiser created by the gallery to generate funds that went to support Tim and his medical bills. It seemed that almost everyone came out of the woodworks to donate artwork for the charity auction including a heavy rotation of […]

Openings: Audrey Kawasaki – “Restlessly Still” @ Merry Karnowsky

On Saturday night, the LA art crowd packed the Merry Karnowsky Gallery to see the work of three artists – Femke Hiemstra, Deedee Cheriel, and of course Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed). On display were paintings and cutout drawings all displaying Ms. Kawasaki’s exquisite eye for detail, mastery of her medium (especially in integrating wood grain), and her sensuous touch. After being impressed by what we saw in an advanced look a couple weeks ago, we can now say that seeing the pieces on the walls and in the proper […]

Time Release Print: Audrey Kawasaki – “Charlotte”

AM stopped by for a visit with Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed) yesterday and caught her in the midst of signing her next time release print.  If you remember, she put up a couple paintings for a fan vote back in May with the consensus winner being the image you see above – Charlotte (which originally exhibited at the Suggestivism show). We’ll have more details later but look for an early August release date. Also, as you know, she’ll be showing at Merry Karnowsky at the end of the month. […]

Charity: “Artist Help Japan” Art Auction

Christina Conway, who if you remember curated the kokeshi show (covered), has again put her curatorial skills to work – this time to benefit the Japan relief efforts. Artists like Audrey Kawasaki, Yoskay Yamamoto, Jeni Yang, Allison Sommers and many more were asked to paint “Emas” – small wooden tablets left at Japanese shrines, usually with an image on one side and a handwritten wish or prayer on the other. These small pieces of art were then put up for auction here, where your bids […]
