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, ThePopUpArtHouse.com). 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.

Celebrating Our Crytsal City

By Cindi Reed

With all the performing celebrities and glittering pomp and circumstance of The Smith Center’s gala opening, there were naturally a lot of long, slow songs displaying exceptional vocal chords and sparkling acoustics (Jennifer Hudson’s epic “Take Care of This House” is probably still echoing in Reynolds Hall’s high ceilings). These performances were magnificent, but they often seemed more geared toward proving a point—Bow down, New York City, The Smith Center has arrived!—than getting into the joy that our new venue will provide.
