Coming up on March 3rd we’ll be opening ‘Picks of the Harvest 2012‘. This is our 1st group show in a good while consisting almost solely of artists that are new to our gallery. There is some amazing talent on board for this one and we can’t wait for all to see their work in person this coming March.

New mural in Culver City from DABS MYLA and MURO

DABS MYLA recently gifted their second mural to  the city of Culver City, this time with their friend MURO from the Canary Islands. The new mural is located just west of their other mural in Culver City (just up the road from Royal-T). This piece is also located within the Branded Arts compound alongside other murals from the likes of Herakut, Crycle, Andrew Hem, David Flores and Anthony Lister.

Look for DABS MYLA in our upcoming Picks of the Harvest 2012 show next month and keep up with ’em via their blog here.

Morgan Spurlock in discussion with Andrew Hosner from Thinkspace at the Affordable Art Fair LA

On Fri, Jan. 20th writer, director and producer Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me, 30 Days, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold) sat down with Thinkspace Gallery director Andrew Hosner for a discussion during the Affordable Art Fair LA regarding his love for contemporary art and the upcoming exhibit he will be curating at Thinkspace this coming April.

‘Christmas Mural 2011’ with Dabs Myla

Just before the big Christmas weekend this past year Dabs Myla took over Culver City with a massive new mural set up via Branded Arts and Thinkspace at the intersection of Washington and National. The mural itself isn’t just something cool to look at, there is a very moving and real story that is told with this new mural. Filmmaker Carlos Gonzalez documented the project and his resulting footage is just so uplifting. The final edit is a thing of beauty.
