Pencil This In: Art Deco Weekend, Art at La Luz de Jesus
There’s an opening reception tonight for Bryan Cunningham’s Wander Lost exhibit at La Luz de Jesus Gallery starting at 8 pm. His inspiration for the art was born out of a road trip across America. He got sick of seeing gentrified towns with megastores and chain restaurants, so he got off the freeways and took forgotten roads with “mom & pop diners, picturesque motels and backyard shrines (to anonymous deities) that gave an indigenous face back to the road.”
This weekend marks the Queen Mary Art Deco Festival on…the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Presented by the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, the weekend’s filled with tours, lectures, the Art Deco Bazaar, a grand Art Deco Ball, tea dance, and their monthly Cocktails in Historic Places (tonight).Proceeds from all activities will benefit conservation and restoration of the original art aboard the 1936 ocean liner.
