Juxtapoz, Art Ltd., & Artillery cover our Nov. exhibits…

Art Ltd. has a great review (see above press clipping) of our November exhibit with Timothy Karpinski in the new issue now hitting news stands and galleries. To view the review online, check it out here.

“Karpinski’s installations and paintings emit a spirit of gentleness untouched by many of his contemporaries. ‘The Place I Call Home’ delivers work that makes you want to fall in love or lounge underneath a weeping willow.” – Art Ltd.

The folks over at Artillery have also covered our November exhibition, this time focusing on the main gallery’s exhibit, The Drawing Room – curated by Audrey Kawasaki. The review of the show will be in the new issue hitting galleries and museums this week. There is also a very interesting feature / mini-interview (though I’m misquoted once or twice) with Audrey that is an online exclusive with Artillery – check it out here.

“Those who’ve seen one of her creations in person know that any tree would be happy to give its life for Audrey’s cause; it seems as though it grew the way it did – a knot here, a line there – to compliment her own lines and knots of hair.” – Artillery
On top of all that, Juxtapoz ran some great shots from the opening reception, including a priceless shot of Karpinski passed out at evening’s end in the lil’ chair from his installation.

Thank you again to all that came out to help make this a very memorable night!!!

"The Drawing Room" opening night… / prints sold out…

Thank you to all that came out and made last night such a huge success for Audrey and all in ‘The Drawing Room’. It was awesome to have 11 of the 24 featured artists and Audrey herself in the house for the opening, as well as Robert Pokorny and Timothy Karpinski (both of whom were showing in our project room).
Audrey sold out before the doors opened (as did many in her curated group show) and once the doors did open, her two special limited edition giclee prints that were created for the exhibition quickly followed suit and were sold out by 10PM – 400 prints in 4 hours, it was a whirlwind in our office to say the least. We’ve already seen some up on eBay, really saddens Audrey when this happens… You think people could come up with a better way to make money than flipping limited edition prints and toys. Pathetic low lifes.
We’ll be posting a slew of opening night shots later tonight, but our good friends over at Arrested Motion have already posted up a nice set (including the shot taken above) – check out the following link for many more shots from the opening night: http://arrestedmotion.com/2008/11/openings-the-drawing-room-thinkspace/#more-3623
The line to view the works and purchase prints went around the block all night long. What a night!!! The LA art world was out in force as well with many big names rolling through to check out the show and pay their respects to Audrey.
There are still some amazing pieces on hand from those Audrey curated, so be sure to check our site. She really did an amazing job curating this show and all that attended seemed to really enjoy the works on view. Look for more soon…

‘Drawing Room’ preview link now live / love from BoingBoing.net…

Please know Audrey spent a lot of time and love putting this lineup together and we want to be sure all also take the time to look over her curation, as you can be sure many gallery owners will be and it’s a sure thing you’ll be seeing much more from many of the newer names included in the exhibit.

The Drawing Room comes to life…

The Drawing Room started to come to life tonight. Audrey is recreating the studio/inspiration area of her home in our front install area for all to take in.

Great first night of install and all really brought their A game to the show. Fun night this eve with a big Italian feast had by all as well as a visit from the folks at Arrested Motion (Marcus Lo seen talking below with Audrey and her boyfriend Brian) as well as a very special visitor…

That visitor being Josh Herman from Artillery magazine done up as ‘Lydia’, one of Audrey’s more popular paintings (see below), to help break the mood a bit as he was swinging through to do a brief interview for his magazine… classic. Definitely lightened the mood to say the least hahaha… Look for an interview with Audrey and an overview on the show in the next issue of Artillery.

For those of you on the waiting list for this show, the preview link will go out late Wednesday night and we’ll begin reaching out to all on Thursday throughout the day (full details will be included in the preview mail itself).

We will also be announcing print details Wed early evening PST here on the blog… stay tuned.
