Opening Night

I arrived back in Melbourne early yesterday Morning. Los Angeles was awesome. I got to attend lots of show openings which was exciting and quite the experience (next time I'm going to remember to bring some 4-inch heels - I was a bit of a fashion failure at a few of the shows in my t-shirt and 1-inch sandals). I also stocked up on cosmetics and art supplies because they are half the price of what we pay in Australia (!!!). And I got some socks to keep my feet warm in Melbourne's winter weather.

I took lots of photos but most importantly I want to share a few of the gallery space and opening night at LeBasse Projects.















I'd like to thank the gallery owners Beau and Christine for looking after me while I was in LA and really going above and beyond what a gallery needs to. They made my time in LA both comfortable and exciting. And also to Yosk and Nate for letting me crash in their studio for a few days at the end of the trip. Thanks guys!

It was also great to meet the other artists who were sharing the gallery space with me for the show - J. Shea and Morgan Slade, it was great meeting them both and getting to check out their work in person.

The show is open 'til August 7 so if you're in LA there is still time to check it out.
