Join me tomorrow for my Curator Talk where I will walk you through the show, Memories on Location, talking about why I chose each artist and details about specific pieces. Here's a teaser:
I'm so proud of how Memories on Location turned out! Not only did the work look good together in this industrial space, but each individual artist shone. As one of them put it, "You can tell these artists are committed to exceptional craftsmanship."

Wow! "Pickles Galore" pop-up show on Sunday was an unexpected success, which I'm very proud of.
Pickles Galore - a group pop-up show on Feb 12, 2017 at Lamperouge Fine Art.
Curated by: Linda Vallejo.
Featuring artwork by: Annie Clavel, Peter Dalton, Deborah Decker, Dawn Marie Forsythe, Jeanie Frias, Leonard Greco, Christine Rasmussen, Marlene Struss & Paul Torres.
Pop-up shows are a lot of work to put on, with no guarantee that they will turn out well. This show came together well due to the trifecta of a gorgeous venue, a smart curator and the participating artists bringing their A-game (it was also nice to have a sunny day!).

What does "Pickles Galore" mean anyway? Answer: absolutely nothing. Here's how my fellow exhibiting artists and I came up with the name - we all wrote two random words on pieces of paper, put them in a hat, and picked out various combinations. I guess we were in a silly mood that day, because the best combination was "Pickles Galore."
This show features 9 artists who I have been meeting with once a month for the past year in a Peer Critique Group. What's a "peer critique group"? Good question. This is a group of artists who gets together and gives constructive criticism about each other's art. This particular group is made up of LAAA/Gallery 825 members.
The show is curated by the fantastic Linda Vallejo, who is picking the work tomorrow, so we'll all be surprised on Sunday!
