Orphan Kittites at L.A.C.E.

Kristin Calabrese and Joshua Aster curated this show and let me tell you, it is the ultimate LA contemporary painter lineup (and I'm not just saying that because I was included). They did a killer job of putting this together. Thanks guys. Here's the skinny on the show from the press release:
"Everybody loves LACE! Hey, so maybe you heard about "Lovable like Orphan Kitties and Bastard Children" that was shown at the Green Gallery in Milwaukee? The show will be making a one afternoon appearance as part of the 2009 Out of Bounds annual Lace 10k. We will be stationed with all 80 cute little paintings at Circus of Books in Silverlake, 4001 Sunset Blvd., 90029.

The show is happening on Saturday, September 26th from 1 - 6pm. Come by Circus of Books, maybe buy some porn or a soda pop and see the lovelies!!
