On Sunday, we were invited to a barbecue at the home of the owners of Thinkspace Gallery, Shawn and Andrew. I posted about the last gallery show at Thinkspace few weeks ago.
Shawn and Andrew live in a nice looking early 50's tract house on the westside. Once you are inside their house, however, there's nothing average about the place! Since they are gallery owners and connoisseurs of the low-brow art scene, their home is jam-packed with incredible works of art! Every inch of their place is covered, salon style, with paintings, drawings, low-brow vinyl figures, sculpture, etc. Shawn and Andrew's home is truly a feast for the eyes.
That's not the only feast....Shawn is a faboo cook. This wasn't just any old hot dog and burger barbecue. Oh no. There were appetizers in the dining room, a buffet of salads and extras in the service porch, hot stuff cookin' on the stovetop, a chocolate fountain with sweets for dippin' in the kitchen, a barbecue full o' chicken strips, burgers, dogs, and many coolers on the deck full of beverages.
The guests were various artists from the scene, along with their friends, collectors and other artsy YOUNG types. I did feel like the den mother for the crowd, but everyone was so interesting and friendly, that we felt very welcome.
Thanks again to Shawn and Andrew for including us in the fun! Here are a few pix from the day:
