Travis Lampe/Chris Crites opening pics

A little late- but here are some pics of the festive opening we had last week. The gallery was packed all night with a flow of viewers taking in the artwalk and the warm summer evening.

Christian Van Minnen stopped by...

As did Robert Hardgrave and Sean Hurley

Former Juxtapoz goddess Lindsey Byrnes stopped by and helped Kenny man the bar. Here they are holding up some "sweet tips".

Camille Rose Garcia- "Lil Elorphant" Print

We are now officially announcing the release of a new print by Camille Rose Garcia, entitled 'Lil Elorphant". Published by Roq la Rue, the entire proceeds of the sale of this print goes to charity, in this case The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya. I just got back from visiting the Trust in Kenya and was really amazed by the hard working staff and innovative community outreach programs they foster. A HUGE thank you to Camille for so generously creating a new work for this project!
I hope for these to be ready in about 3 weeks or so- but you can email me to be put on a list to be notified when they are ready to go!
