The opening reception for DIY Gallery’s next art exhibit starts tomorrow (Saturday, September 18, 2010). Stop by after 7:00 pm for “Schultztember,” a collection of new work by the Schults Brothers, an art and music duo based in Los Angeles.

From the DIY Gallery website:

The Teller of Lore speaks of images … Speaks of dreams … Speaks of sights and sounds of this world and others. Some understand the messages in the symbology represented on these visions , while others seek the knowledge hidden in them. Some fear the gifts they are given while others embrace the responsibility at hand. There are those who see the light as a beacon to guide them through the darkness and others who embrace the shadows knowing the blinding dangers of the light. Water to quench the summer thirst, fire to warm the winter hearth. Nor summer nor winter, Schultstember is upon us.

Closing reception is October 16, 2010.

DIY Gallery is located at 1549 West Sunset Boulevard

The DIY Gallery (which took over Bandit on Sunset Boulevard), is hosting a new show with an opening reception coming up on Saturday, August 14. The gallery will be presenting David Yow’s one-man exhibition of paintings, collage and digital drawings starting Saturday through September 11.

There’s been a lot of excitement revolving around this show. David Yow is not only a cool artist, he is the former frontman for Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid, and Qui. The show at DIY Gallery in Echo Park is his first solo art exhibit and will be presenting (we’ve heard he will be there for the opening) his new collection of work along with a limited edition of posters for sale benefiting Eagles of Death Metal bassist Brian O’Connor, who is undergoing treatment for cancer.

According to the press release, the artwork in the show “are rooted in Yow’s personal and psychological history, and feature a broad spectrum of mediums. From acrylic, pencil, charcoal, crayon, hair, bugs, collage, and tar on wood, to line drawings digitally combined with photographic textures, Yow reveals an uncommon artistic perspective.”

In addition to the exhibit, the DIY back patio will host drinks and projections, along with musical performances to be determined.

Opening Reception: Saturday August 14, 2010 from 7:00 pm-11:00 pm.

The exhibition continues through September 11, with a special event TBA for closing night.

Aaron Williams & Zach Taylor // Pretty Rad: New Collaborations
Closing Reception April 10 // 7pm (Valet parking available)

Pretty Rad is an eye candied Pop Art painting and cleverly industrial Textual sculpture collaboration between Aaron Williams and Zach Taylor.

The entire show is a result of total collaboration in which not one piece is a solo work, each one requiring up to 3-4 months of work to complete. The artists took turn adding to and/or taking away from the previous artist’s contribution, the last of which was finished as the show was being hung.

The duo, both MFA graduates from The Chicago Art Institute, shows the range of their formal technical skills, ability to break free from said abilities when needed as well as their strength as a creative team. The two have been friends and collaborators for almost 3 years. The gallery represents both artists.

After Pretty Rad’s closing reception, the show is headed to Art Chicago, The International Fair of Contemporary and Modern Art at The Merchandise Mart, April 30-May 3 2010.

The show also marks DIY’s move from their former space at 1218 Temple St to the new Sunset Blvd location, a space previously occupied by Bandit Gallery.

*** Bloggers Note: We have expanded our Guest Blog week through Monday because we had some technical issues this weekend and these posts didn’t make it out in time. We apologize if the blog slows down for a couple of days while we work things out. Echo Park Now would like to thank the wonderful and talented Dale Dreiling for pitching in last week. Go see his work at Chango and at The Echo Country Outpost during the art walk!
