Ist week at the gallery

I watched my cousin Diego last week while Michelle went to the Laker Parade. He had a blast coloring and dancing around the gallery. He it not wearing a shirt because he spilled strawberry soda on himself and no shoes because the ones I picked up for him didn't fit. But does it look like he cared?

Last week was my first full week sitting the gallery. Thank God I wasn't alone in there! My friends stopped by from time to time to hang out and paint and I even got to meet gallery owners from the area.

Steve from Blue Core Gallery came in and welcomed me graciously. I haven't gotten a chance to visit his gallery but that is definitely on my agenda for this week.

I met Hugo Jarmaillo who is working on the Edison building. The work/live units look gorgeous! Complete with recycled flooring and energy-effecient everything! As soon as you walk into one of his units you feel the cool air, even if its 2 in the afternoon. Wonderful work on those units he's been working on for the past 3 years!

I also met Pomona artist Thomas Stubbs. I've always seen his work around the various galleries. Finally I got to put a face to the artwork.

Hopefully this week is as eventful as last!

Opening Night and Artist Reception

Hey Everyone!
A BIG thank you to everyone who came out the LUCHA Gallery to show your support! It was an exciting evening, I couldn't have asked for better company. This exhibition was my first show, hopefully one of many more to come. I am in awe of all the support I've received. I would love to hear any comments you may have! LUCHA Gallery is a space which I hope can always be an exciting, welcoming place for our community.
Thank you again and I hope to see you all at the Closing Reception on July 11th!

Check out some more photos from the show and from the Art Walk on local blogs!

Also, endless thanks to my neighbors at Gallery 475 for their warm welcome and to the Arts Colony community members!!!

A perfect ending to a wonderful night! Thanks everyone!
