Saturday, 6/23/12: Pendersleigh L.A. Maps Exhibit
Angelenos! Come out and support my friend and Silver Lake artist Eric Brightwell on the eve of his work going international! You know him through my blog’s über popular header, now get to know the man, myth and legend in person.
Under the tongue-in-cheeky, Old Worldly, “Pendersleigh & Sons Cartography,” Eric has created what can only be described as organic L.A. art in the form of adorable, eccentric and incredibly fitting maps of L.A. and its even tinier hoods-within-a-hood. Have you ever heard of Frogstown? Yeah, me either.
After recent press on Soulful Abode, Eric was featured in the LA Times last week and it literally went viral! Did the biggest little blog on the Eastside have something to do with it? I’d like to think so!
To toast his impending world-wide fame, Echo Park’s 1650 Gallery is hosting a special exhibition of his maps and a reception this Saturday at 7:30. Fans and lovers of L.A. are invited!
