I was ecstatic to learn that my favorite artist, Casey Baugh, was going to display a recent oil painting in a Pop-up Art Show at The Dream Factory Los Angeles Studio in the Downtown LA Arts District! Just a day before the exhibit, the show was announced on various exhibiting artists’ Instagrams (thank you social media!). The gallery opening was from 6 – 9pm, on Saturday, July 9, 2016, sponsored by Royal Talens.
The artist line-up was incredible: Felipe Alonso, Casey Baugh, Mia Bergeron, Benjamin Björklund, Felicia Forte, Phil Hale, Justin Hopkins, Steve Kim, Matthew Saba, Daniel Segrove, Hannah, Vandermolen, Emilio Villalba, Timothy P. Wilson, Yoshino.
The exhibition portrayed a wide-range of different mediums, perspectives, and artistic approaches. It created a unique dialogue between abstraction, figuration, performance, and installation art —traditionalism colliding with futurism.
This Pop-up Art Show was hosted by 3 organizations: _Lo Collective, Abend Gallery, and Artist Decoded Podcast by Yoshino. _Lo Collective is an art collective focusing on premiering contemporary artists and creating a bridge between different communities and the art world. The one-of-a-kind exhibitions organized by the collective aim to produce original, collaborative, multi-disciplinary shows that offer its public a sense of shared community space. Abend Gallery was established in 1990 and is located in Denver Colorado. The gallery offers insight into the art world of the past as well as present contemporary production. Artist Decoded by Yoshino is a podcast / passion project started in 2015. Ranking in the top 3 of the Visual Arts Category, the series is an unedited documentation of conversations between artists who have dedicated their practice to breaking rules and barriers.
I was pleased to learn that this will be _Lo Collective’s first installment of many. I’m looking forward to their next Pop-up Art Show!
