Comings & Goings
Take a break from that drab Starbucks & get some culture this weekend at the Chango Coffee House in Echo Park!
Beginning this Saturday Sept. 1st, the neighborhood eatery/java cafe will present the work of BUGHOUSE in a new exhibit entitled Paraphernalia.
Prints, photographs, apparel, and even home accessories are the canvas for this eclectic husband & wife team. The work has fun retro comic art flair, mixing in politics, social issues & vintage imagery. 1559 Echo Park Ave. – exhibit runs for entire month of Sept. – opening reception Sept. 8, 7-10pm. www.bughouse.com
Closing this Saturday is a unique exhibit by Erwin Redl at the Ace Gallery in Beverly Hills.
His large LED light displays have been described as “sensual architectural installations”, and truly are a sight to see. Think Tron bigger & brighter! Also featured in the exhibit, are some of the artists paintings, drawings & multimedia pieces.
Born in Austria, Redl has exhibited all over the world & currently resides in NY.
There are only a few days left to catch this one! 5514 Wilshire Blvd. (in the Wilshire Tower) – open 10-6pm Tues-Sat – www.acegallery.net
