As part of my new yearly tradition, I love creating small paintings in the hopes of getting into one of the most fun gallery exhibition in Southern California, The Coaster Show! In years past, the Coaster Show has been held at the La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. This year the former curator (of LLDJ), Matt Kennedy, is now hosting the show at his new gallery in Pasadena, Gallery 30 South. Seeing as how the show runs during the month of October, I decided to create a movie monster themed piece, featuring a portrait of the Creature From The Black Lagoon. I hope you enjoy this little piece. And, I hope you can make it out to the show. The display format that is used makes for a very entertaining gallery experience, with nearly 1,000 pieces of beer coaster art filling the walls. It's a must see.
Here is a glimpse from last year's artist opening.
