On the afternoon of Tues, April 15, 2014 I had the opportunity to meet Melissa Abraham, Getty Communications, to view the latest headlining exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center in Los Angeles.
The Getty exhibition hopes to make us really see Los Angeles. Co-curator Rani Singh says, "these buildings become intimate in a way, and hopefully with our exhibition, one comes out with a different understanding and an appreciation for the city that we live in and the level of beauty here."
From March Madness and the Asics L.A. Marathon to three remarkably stimulating visual painting, photography and fashion shows, this upcoming weekend is a great chance to celebrate the multifaceted perks of being an Angeleno.

The biannual Brewery Art Walk offers the opportunity to tour the studios in the Brewery Arts Complex. The tour features resident artists displaying works including paintings, ceramics, video, and performance art.
Although I grew up in New York and have lived there for many years, I have a summer studio in Maine. Every summer I pack up and go to paint following the tradition of so many of America's painters from Winslow Homer to Alex Katz.
On my last trip to New York, I dumped my bags at the hotel and grabbed a cab to the Neue Gallerie uptown. There I spent a delightful hour perusing their exciting collection... especially one painting, the legendary portrait, "Adele Bloch-Bauer I."
