By Hook or by Crook: “Hookers” Opening Night at Corey Helford Gallery

2 Apr

On March 31, Natalia Fabia‘s group curated show “Hookers,” presented at the Corey Helford Gallery celebrated their opening night!

Natalia is an awesome lady, and amazing oil painter that I met at a party many moons ago, and she asked myself and Yume to pose for one of her paintings <3. The theme for this night’s exhibition was “Hookers,” a word that Natalia always uses to describe women who are strong, independent, and stylish, using it in a positive sense to convey modern feminine beauty.

The show featured 22 artists’ rendition of “Hookers,” and the opening night was jammed packed with awesome art and colorful people!

Culver City Adventuretimes! City Tavern, Tavuchi, and COOP at Corey Helford

18 Jul

On Friday, July 15, I continued my busy weekend with a “Welcome (back)” dinner that I organized for our buddy Tavuchi, owner of the brand SPANK!, who is visiting from Japan for some work projects. Tavuchi is a really fun gal to hang around, and I was lucky enough to get to know her during the Magical Girls’ exhibition weekend back in April, since my co-owned company Bubble Punch was working on projects in conjunction with her and Sweet Streets that weekend 🙂

I picked a fun gastropub place near my place called City Tavern, that I had been to before. I was excited because I was able to reserve a Beer Tap Booth for us! It’s… exactly what it sounds like. Three beer taps are installed into the wall next to the booth, and the small screen under the taps keep track of how much beer you consume, at 50 cents an ounce. Super fun!

I guess the only downsides to this would be: 1) you can only pour the 3 beers they have loaded up into the taps (but you can still order from their full drink menu), and 2) you look like an idiot when you fill your cup with foam because you’re not tilting your glass properly, haha.

Delicious beer fresh from the tap!

Art Openings: “Internally Yours” & “INNARDS”

16 Jun

Last Saturday, on June 11, 2011, I checked out two exhibition openings with a ton of talent around Los Angeles.

First, I headed to Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, to see the opening for Nouar’s “Internally Yours” show. This was Nouar’s first show at Corey Helford. The show featured 3D gelatin molds with sinister faces eating themselves, other people, and each other. A little creepy, but overall cute, it was a really fun show to take in. Nouar’s show will be up until June 29th, so get over to CHG asap! They are also showing Joshua Petker’s “Celluloid Constellations” upstairs.

GODDESS of oil painting, Natalia Fabia

This past Saturday, I attended the amazing gallery opening for Natalia Fabia’s “Fashionable Aftertaste Without End,” exhibition, for which my friend and I posed for a painting!

Also, I was pleased with my repeat of glitter eye makeup I did for the night, so here are a few extra pics ❤
