Art, yes; grace and beauty

The opening night premiere party for the 2023 LA Art Fair was Wednesday evening, Feb. 15. This young lady posed for yours truly, and then... she disappeared into the night.

Pictures from an exhibition

The art looked nice, and so did many of those in attendance

The LA Art show is up through Sunday, Feb. 19, in the West Hall at the LA Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa St., Los Angeles.

I took a few photos, and here are some of them. I’ve added names where I knew them, and did not add names where I knew not (which was often the case).

Introduced as “the gallerist’s daughter”

The blonde with a striking look

Yes, she stepped out of the picture behind her

Lively and vibrant: Grace Kim, Yun Choi, and artist Eun Sook Kim

Peri G. She complements the art and vice-versa

Youth and enthusiasm, a good combination

See the above caption, and there’s more to follow

My good pal Hung Viet Nguyen, surrounded as usual by hundreds of women, okay, four women: Mei Xian Qui, Susan Lizotte, Hung, Valerie Wilcox, and Gay Summer Sadow Rick

Artist, gallery owner, friends, family… Happy to be at the art fair on Wednesday evening

Double trouble (just kidding; two nice smiles)

They were holding down the booth for Havoc Gallery, featuring the work of Bruce R. MacDonald

And another South Bay artist, Sabrina Armitage

Three more from the South Bay: Errol Gordon, Jody Wiggins, and Richard Terasaki
