Los Angeles art fair
We are settling in. The key to Saturday’s endless errands was two stops to try tacos. We first started at a green market we drove by in Santa Monica and had chicken tacos.
One taco did not fill us up so we opted to pull over at La Playita, a local dive and try a shrimp and fish taco. It hit the spot.
The late afternoon we went to the Nada art fair in Santa Monica.
It was a small show. A few galleries we know and others we did not.
This was kind of funny. Sharpies.
Really liked this painting.
Thought this was hilarious.
The artist did an amazing job of painting people in daily events.
Thought these brush strokes on canvas were cool.
This booth was filled with coffee mug pieces.
These shots of food mixes were kind of crazy.
Always love the artist Sarah Greenberger Rafferty.
Just starting to get a picture of the art world in Los Angeles.
I would venture that you like Richard Serra prints?
huge fan of Richard Serra
Looking at the brush stroke piece above reminds me of this piece I’ve had hanging over my dresser forever. Still touches me and such a huge wink to the world by one of my favorite artists.(sorry-horrid photo)
Pasadena– the home of the Chouinard Institute– has an incredible art tradition. Chouinard produced a lot of cartoonists includding the late John Dempsey of Playboy and the New Yorker.
Joanne, another great place worth checking out for tacos, tortas and aguas frescas is http://www.gallogiro.com/ with several locations in the LA area. Enjoy!!
Found this little spot on Santa Monica last year…shrimp, fish, scallops tacos…so good.http://www.yelp.com/biz/tac…
Do you and Fred mainly collect contemporary works?
Love the giant brush strokes on canvas piece.
