According to Lee Joseph, publicist for La Luz de Jesus art gallery in the back of Wacko on Sunset, two paintings were stolen from the gallery today. The works by Lauren Gardiner are worth $1750 total and were already sold to patrons.

"There were only a few customers in the store this morning--none of them carrying bags or wearing loose clothing," explained Joseph. "It is our store policy to check all bags at the register. Unfortunately, our gallery surveillance failed us and we are currently remiss of any leads."

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the gallery at 323.663.0122 or e-mail info@laluzdejesus.com. A reward is being offered for the return of the art.
