Jim McHugh: 40 Years of LA Art Scene ~ PhotoLA Fair 2016

PhotoLA 2016 was once again a hit. One of the highlights of the three day event was an exhibition of work by LA native photographer Jim McHugh who’s been capturing the LA art scene for 40 years. Jim has massed a collection of artists that can not be replicated. Names like Baldessari, Hockney, Rosenthal, Kelly, Ruscha, Sleeps, Prime and Axis. A true man of art, Jim definitely shows how influential the city of Los Angeles has become a mecca of art for thru the years.

LA Art Show 2016 ~ L.A. Convention Center

The LA Art Show 2016 celebrated its 20th anniversary in Los Angeles. This was my first year attending the show and it was overwhelming to say the least. It was nearly impossible to take in all the art in one day but I tried my best. I did remember to see all of the local galleries and artists that you and I are familiar with. I especially enjoyed the live art by UGLARWorks, Septerhed, Levi Ponce, Jennifer Korsen, and Robert Vargas just to name a few.
