Eve in the Garden of Lost Angels Opens with A Crunch!

The opening reception for LA FAN's debut show at Optical Allusion Gallery on Saturday, May 15 was filled with temptations - in the form of art and fruit. Our show offered a diverse and compelling range of interpretations of the theme, Eve in the Garden of Lost Angels. We had a great turnout and everyone had a lot of fun celebrating and mingling.

The gallery was a perfect venue for our overflow crowd, with a private courtyard in back where we had a DJ, bar, a spread of tasty hors d'oeuvres - and everywhere - tempting displays of crunchy red delicious apples, echoing our theme.

Thanks to Milla Zeltzer, our wonderful curator, Richard McDowell, Carl Ramsey and Michael Tighe of Optical Allusion Gallery, and all the artist members of LA FAN who contributed.
