I’ll be posting the ‘recommended openings’ for this weekend early Thursday AM. So many killer shows this weekend. Things kick off Thursday night with the big Hush and Flip shows at Carmichael and don’t let up from there. Really looking forward to the return of the Kitschen Sync group show at LaLuz on Friday too. We really are spoiled living out in Southern California when it comes to the arts.
The press love for Amy Crehore‘s debut Los Angeles solo show with us continues to stream in.
Juxtapoz just posted a nice re-cap of the opening night and a link to the show pieces here.
Juxtapoz also did a cool ’20 Questions’ feature with Amy just before the show. In case you missed that, check it out here.
Additional press of note includes:
, Arrested Motion
, The Rumpus
, Metromix L.A.
(the newspaper version, too), Fabulist
, Format Mag
, and even a nice mention on KPFK
radio via Ali Lexa’s show.
If you missed the interview I posted with Amy here on Sour Harvest leading into the opening of her solo, be sure to check it out here
Amy also posted some nice pics on her blog of the show all hung in the gallery here
and we have a slew of shots of the opening night reception and the works all hung in the gallery as well here
In addition to our photo set, Amy has a nice set up on our her flickr too of all the works here
For those that missed it, a great interview was also posted with Sadie Magazine
leading into the show and a great ful-page preview / mini-interview with both Amy and myself is featured in the new issue of Inked Magazine
(which is now on news stands nationwide
‘Dreamgirls and Ukes’

Also, since the works in the preview don’t feature the ukes strung up and ready to play, Amy’s also posted pics of all the ukes ready to play, after her husband Lou, a professional luthier, strung them and tuned them – they look fabulous – check out the images here
Amy Crehore arrived into town from Oregon late Sunday afternoon and hit the ground running on Monday, waisting no time in getting started on her front entry area wall mural…
Rough sketched out mural/show title starting to take shape…
Coming along nicely… be sure to come by opening night to check out the finished product.
Amy’s ukulele arsenal laid out, and ready for installation…
The ukes are just amazing. All have been lovingly restored by her husband, who’s a professional luthier, and are ready to play. Beautiful antiques taken to another level by Amy’s talented hand.
The installation of things is coming along… going to be a very nice flow of works, can’t wait for all to enjoy this one, really a fun show.
arrived today and is starting in on his wall mural and getting all his paintings ready for installation… the gallery is abuzz with activity.
