Matt Gondek recently sat down with curator and co-owner of Thinkspace Projects Andrew Hosner for podcast Harsh Truth and the results are now live over at www.HarshTruthPodcast.com or on your favorite podcast streaming network.
“We discussed our gallery’s history, the state of the art world today, how to properly submit to a gallery these days, what we look for in new artists, are galleries still a viable outlet and so much more. Good talk, thanks again for the invite, Matt!” – Andrew Hosner
Online magazine Cartwheel Art featured the opening reception of Vitality and Verve III: Transforming the Urban Landscape at the Long Beach Museum of Art.
Each artist’s installation is activated by the space it occupies and the work it sits next to. Occupying both floors of the museum’s galleries, it is nearly impossible to view one artist’s installation on it’s own, without seeing another out of the corner of your eye. This aspect of the exhibit challenges you to experience the layers of artworks as they bounce off one another and consume the space in totality. – Cartwheel Art

Online fashion and lifestyle magazine Live Fast featured our August exhibiting artist Alex Garant earlier this year. The pieces highlight Garant’s artistic journey and hypnotizing work.
To immerse yourself in Garant’s ethereal work is to notice the luminous way she drenches her subjects in light, her otherworldly washes of color, how her women look directly at you with a powerful combination of vulnerability and quiet strength, but it is also to feel trapped inside an optical illusion, fighting the message from your brain that your eyes are playing tricks on you. – Live Fast
Visit Live Fast Magazine to read I Only Have Eyes for You: The Mesmerizing Double Vision of Alex Garant and come to the opening of Alex Garant’s “Voyage of the Insomniac” showing her latest body of work August 4th at Thinkspace in Culver City.
Hypebeast just hyped our collaboration with the Long Beach Musem of Art for Vitality and Verve III: Transforming the Urban Landscape and we couldn’t be more excited.

Our current exhibiting artist Wiley Wallace is currently featured on Juxtapoz.com. The New Contemporary Art publication highlights Wallace’s style and themes in the piece which features work from the showing exhibition, “Stay Connected.”
Playful and ambiguous, his luminous and ostensibly radioactive worlds suggest a metaphysical interest in the possibility of alternate realities: the endlessly shapeshifting and protean nature of fantasy at the intersection of the imagined and “real.” Wallace’s paintings combine realistic rendering with elements of the surreal, and near-magical references that include eerily cast light sources bordering on the supernatural. – Juxtapoz
