Opening reception: Friday November 27th, 7 pm.
Kii Arens opened La La Land Gallery in 2004, and he's been creating and sharing amazing works of art, in various formats, ever since. You've probably seen his concert prints around town while catching a show and it's likely you own one already. His most recent opening, titled "Kii and Friends Art Show," opened up doors to some very talented artists. This was definitely a good way to spend Black Friday. He and his curatorial team gathered about a dozen artists to showcase their pieces. It varied from painting to videography to collage and linocut. Each artist has a defining feel, but all of them together in one room still felt very cohesive. They're organic, but bright. Each artist depicted a large amount of movement and detail but simultaneously gave off the essence of lightheartedness---which just made you want to gaze at the art so much more. If you’re in town, I recommend stopping by to see these pieces. I also recommend contacting them beforehand for current gallery hours.
