Art lovers and celebs brave a cold rainy night to support this event
By: AC Gallery
Gallery Owner Carlos Benitez prepared for the worst; covering and heating all of the outdoor areas of the 4000-foot gallery, so that guests would be dry for red carpet festivities as well as keeping warm. "We are a premier venue for art, so it's important that we provide the best possible experience for artists and patrons alike,"
And what an experience it was: Guests were not only treated to over 30 artists working in contemporary fine art in all media types including Abstract, Art Objects, Conceptual, Craft, Minimalist, Photography, Pop art, Representational, Sculpture and Works on paper, but live musical acts all four days of the event. The first night also featured a gala red carpet ceremony, a full bar(with bartenders provided by Dama Tequila) including kombucha, which was provided by GTS
MedMen cannabis dispensaries table was staffed by friendly representatives in their bright red jackets, who offered guests information as well as a discount upon visiting the dispensary.
Guests included many notable celebrities, including Grammy winner May Chang, Academy Award nominee Shannon K, Billboard recording artist Em Hoggett, veteran bad guy actor, Patrick Kilpatrick, and even pink and gold Power Rangers, Allison MacInnis and Steven Skyler, who all braved the weather to support art in Hollywood.
The true stars of the evening were the works of art themselves, which included a print of Jean Michel Basquiat's "The Offs", as well as a Warhol retrospective by photographer Karen Bystedt and a special exhibit on loan from the Velveteria Museum.
Guests were also treated to the works of Domenic Migliore, who's photographs were recently removed by a gallery in Chicago, for being "too controversial."
Artists in residence Rachel Ganz and George Hobbs were impressed by the event and crowd size. Hobbs whose simple Stick Figure Wisdom drawings have been described as 'heartfelt,"
