A few years back we had the honour of having famous LA resident and artist Mark Ryden stop by to check out our wares during a multi-seller garage sale in Silver Lake. And when we say "stop by", we mean him slowing down in his car (but never really stopping), peer out through the passenger window to eye an original Ponderosa-Bonanza tin cup we were selling, and then almost immediately zoom away unimpressed. Hurt? A little. But we still love his artwork, so we recommend you check out Ryden's upcoming The Tree Show at Michael Kohn Gallery this Saturday at 12:00-6:00 pm, where the master of the beautiful macabre showcases his newest paintings, sculpture and works on paper [another painting under the cut].
Mr. Ryden, we might very well "stop by", at your gallery show...but no promises. Mark Ryden: The Tree Show Mar. 10 - Apr. 28 Michael Kohn Gallery 8071 Beverly Blvd., L.A. 323-658-8088
