“Hot Concrete: L.A. Arrangement” at Sow and Tailor
Apr 18 - May 30(All times are in PDT)
Across town, artist Greg Ito has opened a new gallery space that focuses on celebrating LA artists and the community. Ito, along with his wife Karen Galloway and friend Stefano Di Paola, has launched Sow and Tailor with its inaugural group show, “Hot Concrete: L.A. Arrangement.” Walking into the space off of Grand Avenue, the works clustered at the front of the venue mimic the streets of Los Angeles—a maquette for Peter Shire’s public sculpture in Elysian Park, and a Sayre Gomez trompe l’oeil painting that looks like discarded price stickers stuck to a park bench. Progressing through the exhibition, the works slowly become more personal and figurative, like our private domestic spaces that act as reprives from the concrete city. Together, the exhibition celebrates LA culture, artists, and the messy yet vibrant energy that our city encapsulates.
