The Seventh Letter’s flagship store and gallery opened last week, we stopped by the grand opening and it was quite the event. As you may know from our past with the Seventh Letter crew and brand, we had an entire issue dedicated to them in July 2007, and have extensively covered exhibitions at Known Gallery in LA over the years. That said, this store is long, long overdue, and we are so happy they got the flagship up and running!!! Hope you enjoy the photos.

This past weekend, we visited the opening of Travis Louie's newest solo show, Strange Discoveries, at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles. We are going to give it to you straight. You Louie's work on the web, as many of us do, and you think, "That has to be digital." On the contrary, you see Louie's work in person, and you can't believe all the works are created by hand, by a very gifted, imaginative artist who has created his own universe of characters... beautiful, inspiring work. Go see it.

If you have received your copy of the December 2013 issue (and if you subscribe now you can get that issue for free), then you know we had a grand feature on NYC-based Eric White, written by Carlo McCormick. And if you saw that piece, you know that we were printing it in conjunction with White's solo show, "All of This Has Not Occurred," that opened at Martha Otero Gallery in LA this past weekend. We plan these things.

Some shows need to be seen in person, in a big spacious gallery, where gigantic canvases can overwhelm you in their peaceful positioning. And even though we just used a bunch of words that mean there are big paintings hanging at Regen Projects this month in Lari Pittman's "From A Late Western Impaerium," there are also highly detailed drawings and paintings that also suck you into their mysterious language and context. Here are some photos from the opening this past weekend...

This past weekend we stopped by Known Gallery for the opening of “Path of a Wave Warrior,” a solo exhibition of new works by Herbie Fletcher. After a successful show at The Hole in NYC earlier this year, we were excited that the surf pioneer brought his new works to Los Angeles, bringing his unique compositions of broken surf boards and decal arrangements to Known Gallery.

A few weekends back, we stopped by New Image Art to check out Richard Colman’s latest solo exhibition “Gone Tomorrow.” As always, Colman's work was a beautiful collection that addresses some of the darker subject matter of life, but done so with a brightness and abstraction that always grows and is perfected with each body of work. Photos and more after the jump..

We recently stopped by Martha Otero Gallery for the opening reception of “Charge,” Tim Biskup’s latest solo exhibition. Taken back by this new body of work, Biskup never ceases to amaze us with his constant natural progression throughout the years. Biskup seems to take a fearless approach with his artistic evolution, and somehow does it flawlessly.
