Art:LA 2007


So I missed the boat in telling you about Photo:LA, a show each year at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium that boasts about 70 photography galleries, dealers and bookstores displaying (and hawking) their wares. It took place this past weekend, and I went yesterday. Although I couldn't fully enjoy the various offerings, owing to the crutches that impeded my mobility and left me huffing and puffing, it was on par if not better than last year's show.

Fortunately, I can still fill you in on the companion piece to Photo:LA, which takes place next weekend at the aforementioned location. Art:LA will showcase galleries, dealers and booksellers that offer works in an array of media.

Some artists I dig, whose work has been shown in the past and will likely reappear this year, include Megan Whitmarsh, former Royal Art Lodger Jonathan Pylypchuk, Souther Salazar and Saelee Oh. There are also galleries from far-flung and strange lands such as Vancouver, Milan, Stockholm and Miami, so there should be ample new discoveries to behold as well.

Check it out if you have a chance. It's a bargain at $15 for a day pass (Photo:LA was $20).
