MAKING THE SCENE IN 2017

 

Try as we may to extend the holidays, our attention must finally shift to the new year ahead. Let’s greet the future with some art, shall we?


This Thursday (January 12) is the opening night of Los Angeles’ premier photo fair, Photo LA. As a FOCUS Photo Award Finalist, I’ll be making fancy with photography lovers at the VIP benefit before rushing back to unlock the doors for Chungking Studio’s Focal Planes exhibition. We had an epic soft opening this weekend, but our official reception happens in conjunction with the LA Art Show’s Littletopia after-party on Chung King Road, 8:30-11pm. All the block’s galleries will be open, with a guest DJ set by Flavor Flav. Yeah Boyeeeeeee!

The shutterbuggery continues with the CONVERGE | Month of Photography LA-curated Group Show at Space 15 Twenty, opening January 19, 7-9pm, and on view in Hollywood for one week only (thru January 26). All of which makes this the perfect month to find a gorgeous interview in Artillery Magazine by writer and scholar Betty Ann Brown.

Chungking Studio’s 2016 Photo of the Year, “It’s a Mess Without You,” not only enlivens the Artillery spread, but is also the name of my fast-approaching solo exhibit at Porch Gallery - Ojai. The show opens Saturday, February 18, 5-7pm, with a next-day porch-hang Sunday, February 19, 10am-2pm. Accommodations in town that weekend are tight, so if you want to stay the night, please plan soon! (You can hit up the gallery for local intel.) #seeyouontheporch

Finally, with the emotional minefield that is the news these days, maybe it’s time to unplug the TV and stare at some new art! Our Photo of the Month is available for purchase at 20% off directly from Chungking Studio in either large (24x36") or medium-size (17 x 22”) limited edition prints through January 31.

 

WISHING YOU AN ARTFUL NEW YEAR!
