A very short Silver Lake Art Walk... on Malcolm X Day

Posted by Eric Brightwell, May 8, 2012 01:35pm | Post a Comment
Pencil this in gang – this Malcolm X Day (19 May, 2012) there’s going to be a closing reception at the gentlemen’s shop, Brightwell, for artist Douglas Walker’s Aesthetic series. Douglas Walker was a member of Little Egypt’s (Southern Illinois) screamo/hardcore band, The Livingston Project, and Secretary.

Douglas Walker - 29th



Douglas’s series includes a selection of collages and sculptures which, to me, recall the assemblages of John Chamberlain, Joseph Cornell and especially Robert Rauschenberg. At least one viewer suggested David Lovejoy. I can see that. Come see for yourself between now and then and see for yourself. 
Club Underground
Music will be provided by Amoeba’s own DJ Modernbrit (who is also well known as a frequent traveling companion on my LA and OC neighborhood blog series) as well as Diana (from the band, Sweater Girls) and Larry – both also from Club Underground, “the premiere Britpop, Indie, Eletro Pop, Twee, Post-Punk, Soul, Sixties and New Wave party in Los Angeles.”
Just Desserts
Meanwhile, next door at Monkeyhouse Toys, there’s an art opening – Just Desserts. (It’s a bit of a very short Silver Lake art walk -- 33 feet -- you can do it!). The theme is dessert and exhibiting artists include Ashley J. Long, Beth Sleven, Brianne Drouhard, Carlos San Diego, Cache, Cheri Ong, Claire Lenth, Crowded Teeth, Curioddities, Denise "Dee" Chavez, Douglas Alvarez, Elizabeth Ito, Erin Longstocking, Frankie Peak, Fubear, Heather Sybil Chavez, Heather Hayes, J.
