I attended the opening night of Art Los Angeles Contemporary: The International Contemporary Art Fair of L.A (ALAC) at Barker Hanger and it was packed with amazing artwork and galleries from all over the world.  ALAC launched last year and since then has gained notoriety as Southern California’s top contemporary art fair. The opening evening was a huge success; there were red dots everywhere, with some galleries selling out within the first hour.  Following are a few photos from the evening, however if you’re in the Los Angeles area you should really stop by to see all the artwork.

Schoultz’s intricate and detailed paintings are stunning. Below are a few more images of his work, all of which were sold by the time I visited the booth.

Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects featured artist Mike Bayne's incredible photorealist paintings.

 

At first glance Bayne’s work might appear as if what you’re viewing are 4”x5” color photographs, upon a closer look you realize they are actually tiny, intricate, highly detailed photorealist oil paintings.  Bayne’s paintings are stunning; I was seriously blown away by his work. Following are a few images but you really must see these paintings in person.
