One very sexy (and apparently primal) art gallery in West Hollywood
Thanks to the hard work and wonderful connections of my dear friends Matt and Griffin in Los Angeles, two weeks ago I got a phone call that went something like this:
"Andrea. Can we fly you to LA to do an art show that opens this Wednesday?"
"But today is Thursday."
"Yes it is. Can we pull it off?"
As it turns out, we can pull off just about anything. I rush-ordered thirteen prints on Friday, flew to Los Angeles Monday, installed the show Tuesday, opened Wednesday, and flew back to Denver on Thursday. And I think I exhaled on Friday.
The show was at a pop-up gallery in West Hollywood called Hus Gallery, which has its home base in London. The lower level featured the work of artist Mark Evans, and about seven of us lesser-knowns were invited to share the second floor. It was the middle of Oscar week, and the vibe in Los Angeles was very social and exciting. 50% of the art sales benefitted various charities, so in addition to enjoying the posh atmosphere I was able to support my beloved Uganda Project students. Thanks to all the wonderful people who purchased images and participated in the event!
I am hereby accepting more phone calls advertising insane last-minute adventures. That's a challenge, people. Go!
