After the delicious organic feast, we went to Pigman Gallery with Mieko (she knows the owner). The gallery was showcasing Laura Kimpton's art, and I rather liked it. She had quite a variety of works, from eerie sadistic-looking sculptures, playful photographs, various installations using antique dolls/toys, and modern-looking prints.
But what I enjoyed most was the space. The gallery was small and cozy, with beautiful old wooden floors. And the back opened to a sort of industrial open space under the highway marked with graffiti work. They had a dj, a bar, and heat lamps. The artist's print works were pinned to the wired fencing. It made the gallery feel down-to-earth.
Mieko knows lots of artists and music people. She talked up the owner about organizing an event there with local artists and a music evening...maybe in April. I can't wait!!
My favorite piece is 4th down on the right.
