December 18, 2011Last night was the opening of the DRUGS CREW show at New Image Art Gallery. This was the first show of a new partnership between HEX and New Image Art to support the arts. And if this first show is any indication, there are great things to look forward to. Despite the unexpected LA rain, a large crowd spilled out from the gallery onto the front sidewalk. Immediately upon stepping inside, we were overwhelmed by the complete floor to ceiling multimedia installation. Layered underneath the pieces, the walls had been completely painted and pieces were even hung from the ceiling. I took some detail shots of the pieces, but this is really a show you have to check out in person. LA based artist, Augustus, who recently had a show here, was in the crowd as well as MOCA director Jeffrey Deitch. I loved these oversize scratchers hung around the gallery. The show is up until January 21. Go check it out!
