i'm embarrassed to say i've never been to the geffen contemporary MOCA until the other night, and it was such a lovely experience, for several reasons...
reason one: lauren spencer king's gorgeous artwork... one of the pieces was a large watercolor print of the plant henbane. she also did a smaller hot pink version that of course my eye makes a beeline for. and then there were also her sweet complementary bookmarks. below is a few snaps of her method to the madness + the outcome. powerful brilliance; that lauren.
(Keep Telling on Yourself is the name of her print, she'll be posting them soon to her site - go snatch one up!)
reason 2: my ethereal pixie lili's ikebana creations
(the sweetest thing of all is when we were talking about her work at the book stand, she told me that it represented a little ship setting sail against a big gentle wave (driftwood), ocean floor (fabric square) - how thoughtful is she?)
reason three: book stand by claire
(she really picks the best goodies and then curates the space like a champ)
reason four: exposure to the genius of printed matter: the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of publications made by artists
reason five/six/seven: my last girls night outing before bebe enters the world!
(the magical abyss of fun that night + my new chapter in life)
