Go See Some Art

If you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, you should go see some art.

Specifically, the Los Angeles Art Show is on this weekend (Jan 23-25, 2009) and I trust it will be worth seeing. At least, I found last year’s show worthwhile, and this year it’s supposed to be bigger (so, one hopes, it’ll be just as good but there will be more of it).

I will not have any work in the show. This is a big expensive galleries-only extravaganza. Kind of like a trade show. Individual artists don’t generally show at these things, just art galleries and related businesses. But if you go on Saturday, when I’m planning to go, you might bump into me in the aisles.

You can get more information about the where and when of it all at the Los Angeles Art Show web site.

If you go here, you can print out an online coupon that gives you $5 off the $20 admission fee. I don’t know how much parking will cost (it’s in a new location this year) but I doubt it’ll be free, so carpool if you can.

I’ll write about my impressions after the show is over. We can compare notes!

Oh, if you’re not lucky enough to be in L.A. this weekend, go see some art anyway. It’s good for you.

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
