It's hard to believe that it's almost been a week since we completed construction on the New and Improved La Luz de Jesus Gallery, but here we are in the first week of Eastertide. If you haven't seen the Scott Hove "Iced Out" exhibition, you need to drop what you're doing right now and come check it out. This is a show that warrants a "live" perspective.

If you missed the opening reception, you missed an extravagant assortment of delicious desserts from the Nickel Diner. With all those Scott Hove cakes on display, we knew the crowd would be hungry, and they voraciously vacuumed the maple bacon donut holes and potato chip and peanut butter cupcakes. The refreshments, supplied by Nakhon Brewing, were much appreciated and paired well with the savory and sweet snacks.

The best surprise for Scott Hove fans of was the chance to pass through a gallery of Dennis Larkins and Max Grundy paintings before arriving at the cakeland sculptures. Dennis was also on hand Saturday to sign copies of his latest tome of three dimensional relief paintings, "Startling Art," published by Last Gasp and available for sale in the gallery.

Max Grundy was similarly busy this weekend -welcoming a beautiful baby daughter into the world! Congrats to proud new parents Max and Candace! Of course, LA Weekly readers got a preview of Grundy's "Out of Order" show when his title piece accompanied the Easter Sunday spotlight in the Go LA section.

Families flocked to our expanded Los Feliz digs and bought Bruce Eichelberger's etched eggs and other Eastery delights.

The three exhibitions are up all month long, and the work is extraordinary. Just in time for your Tax Refund check!

And speaking of tax, the Rogue Taxidermy Exhibition is coming soon, so be sure to sign up for the online preview by joining our email list.
