Salon de Henderson

salonshowpano03.jpgWith Saturday’s closing reception, it’s time to bring the curtain down on the Pop-Up Art House’s first group exhibition, Salon Show, in its PUAH Gallery (730 W. Sunset Road, Featuring a retro twist, Salon Show asked 24 artists—from students to established pros—to submit contemporary takes on landscapes, portraiture, still life and other traditional subject matter. Additionally it invited local writers to produce a Salon Show Gazette as part of the show.

The result has been such a success that organizers are planning to make it an annual happening. Bid it adieu (until next year) 4-7 p.m. March 24 at an event that will include Gazette readings by lawyer/poet Dayvid Figler and Huffington Post contributor Mat Gleason.

This fond farewell, however, includes an enthusiastic welcome: At 4:30 p.m. there will be a ribbon-cutting marking the newly renovated residence of the Art House, the former Sunset Strip Mall now to be renamed Star Square after its $50,000 renovation. Celebrate with a live bluegrass band, the “unleashing of ladybugs,” some tasty barbecue and a few brewskis.

Flunk Out

Detachment is the latest curiosity by London-born singer/songwriter/painter/film director Tony Kaye, whose first film, a violent exposé of neo-Nazism called American History X, caused a minor sensation in 1998. This film is about one month in the life of a different kind of tortured, alienated soul—the substitute teacher. It opens March 16 but like a flight to nowhere, it’s already available for pre-boarding on television, where you can catch it any time on Video on Demand.
