If you’re in LA in early May, you may want to check out a new Gary Baseman art show at the Corey Helford Gallery, billed as “La Noche de la Fusión”:
…a colorful and climactic solo exhibition of new works by Pervasive Los Angeles artist Gary Baseman. Joining Corey Helford for the first time, Baseman will transform the gallery into a Carnivalesque festival celebrating the beauty of the bittersweetness of life. His new works of paintings and sculptures culminate in a synergetic event fusing visual art and a pan-cultural celebration. Open to the public, “La Noche de la Fusión” kicks off with an outdoor festival at 6:30pm followed by a gallery reception from 7 to 10pm on Saturday, May 2. Guests are encouraged and welcome to wear costumes to the opening, and the exhibition will be on view until May 23, 2009.
