it's right around the corner.
LACE 2011!

I'm a huge supporter of LACE. It's one of my favorite organizations to donate time and energy. If I am correct, it's LA's oldest nonprofit arts organization.... Wow, that's a feat...

Last year, I was one of the guest curators for the annual auction, the year before I was in the wrapping room frantically wrapping works as they came off the Auction Block. It was really exciting to see these work up close.... And this year, I'll be attending, drinking, and bidding on some amazing art for a great cause. I hope to see you there....

I think the catalog will be going live soon, so online previewing and bidding will begin.... Works by Steve Roden, Liz Craft, and Shannon Ebner and more.... I'm gonna go broke!


The auction will also feature a limited edition artist portfolio featuring new work by Sarah Conaway, Lecia Dole Recio, Sandeep Mukherjee, Gina Osterloh, Eamon Ore-Giron, Heather Rasmussen, Steve Roden, Sean Sullivan, Melissa Thorne, and Liat Yossifor. Only one copy will be made available to the public.
