LA Art Show

over the weekend i attended the 15th annual los angeles art show, which is the biggest art fair happening on the west coast. it's the first time i've ever attended this event and had a great time perusing each gallery!

at the front of the convention center, large crowds formed around talented artists painting ginormous canvases, each one very unique. there were also printmaking demos scattered through out the various booths.

the subject matter and styles varied widely from traditional landscapes and prints to quirky sculptures (one being a giant walk in kiss! crazy!).

ray turner had some really cool oil paintings on glass, frank relle had awesome photographs of decaying homes in new orleans and my favorite gallery was sue greenwood fine art in laguna beach.

this is definitely a show well worth checking out next year, if you're in the area. i will be there...for sure!

Wow, it's enormous! Looks like the sort of event where it's impossible to see everything. It sure would be fun to catch some year. I echo Lori's question-- will you be exhibiting next year?
