This weekend, those folks close by should head on down to Culver City Saturday night, April 18th, from 6-9 pm for a gallery opening at the Cerasoli Gallery for an exhibit featuring new work by John Grande, Franziska Klotz and Nick Potter. According to Freddi, their fine art work invokes various photographic genres through the use of paint.
"In Gallery One, contemporary painter John Grande’s oil on canvas portraits often resemble archival budoir photographs cleverly interwoven with archetypal gender narratives. German-born artist Franziska Klotz collects, tags, and archives snapshots, which she then reconfigures as paintings that are often contradictory and dreamily abstract. Influenced by the banality of everyday spaces in his native England, Nick Potter’s current works use architectural spaces and images of desire to explore the implicit interrelations between class, materialism, isolation and anxiety."The exhibit will be running through May 13th. Also going on this weekend, for my friends back in the C'Boro, Wootini will be hosting a Mini Munny Mobile Decorating Party on Sunday, April 19th.
Here's the scoop, according to my man Mike,
"All you have to do is show up, and express interest in decorating a Munny - then we simply give you a Munny Mobile while supplies last. We'll have some tables and chairs, as well as some materials to use to decorate your Munny. Local artist Amy 'LizzPhizz' Richards [will be] on hand to help give you ideas and assist in creating your Munny. Pictures will be taken and submitted to Kid Robot."I will see if I can hit up the Kidrobot here in LA, but I figure it will probably be some crazy shit going on that day. And I can't miss the farmers' market this week. This economy is stupid. Everybody, recycle your old stuff so you can go out and buy some new stuff to stimulate this shit.
