Needless to say we haven’t been behaving ourselves, but there’s just too much great art out there. We also recently added a beautiful piece from Sarah Joncas to our collection that she gave to us as a thank you for her recent solo show with us. I’ll be posting up a picture of that once it comes back from the framers.

Keeping our fingers crossed for a nice piece from Josh Keyes to accompany our two smaller works we have from the man. Big shows at Swarm and LeVine are coming up quick.

Speaking of not being able to behave, look for a new collector interview to be posted here next week. We got an amazing reaction to the 1st one and many more are getting wrapped up as I type. Some great ones coming up.

Brendan Monroe’s return to LA just around the corner…
