I’m not going to pretend to tell you things in any order, I’ll trust you to follow any links that interest you and do your own calendaring and mapping.

Or, ooh! “You may filter my offerings through the register(s) of your own temporal and geographic motif(ives), (and utilizing the haptics of your own keyboarding skills) there-by siting your presence variously throughout the city and avoiding the potential for distanciation associated with this non-site that is the Internet.” (would that the web were some 21st Century Althing of human-kind, instead of a non-site, but such is not the case)

I find that our friend Katherine Hillseth has moved her gallery Young Art to 418 Bamboo Lane, Unit B, in Chinatown 90012. Further, I find that Young Art is featuring a solo exhibition of paintings by Jessica Williams (yay!) who the clever among you will recall from a past and the current group exhibition across town in Santa Monica “Embarrassment 2: Theory” at Gallery KM. I give you fair warning that I have now clued you into two spaces you ought to make time and check out. Embarrassment 2 is up now and Jessica’s show at Young Art opens on February 5.

Hmm, it is now but 12:44, I have 16 minutes left of posting and I seem to have lost access to part of my box of tricks……….. screw.

If I can’t get back before later – you absolutley must check this work out. Each artist in the KM show, and Jessica Williams at Young Art should not be missed. Embarrassment 2: Theory has work by Michael Dopp, Liz Glynn, Peter Holzhauer, Whitney Hubbs, Laura Kim, Juliana Romano, Frank Ryan, Lily Simonson, Caleb Waldorf and Jessica Williams. The previous grouping of these several artists closed a while back – I missed it but went to the opening of this second show. D and I were pretty excited. Oh – and dinner across the street at Coogies is excellent!
