On Friday night Larry and I were at the Ace Gallery
on the Miracle Mile for the opening reception of Charles Fine
's 30 Year Retrospective. I was not familiar with Charles' work, but Larry has known the Artist since childhood. They grew up together and attended the same schools. Larry remembers going to one of Charles' art shows about 20 years ago, also at Ace Gallery.
I like Charles' work very much. He paints, sculpts, does assemblage and works in various other mediums. It was an impressive show.

We saw a few friends at the reception too....always a plus! The Ace Gallery is located in the historic, Art Deco Wilshire Tower Building that was originally Desmond's Men Store. It is a beautiful building, built in 1929 (Gilbert Stanley Underwood, architect).
