RESERVED.

We headed over to Reserve LA Friday night to check out the Edward Colver photographic exhibition. I took a few pictures of the pictures but as always, that does it no kind of justice. You really have to get close to the pictures to see the full details and technicality of it all. The attention to detail on each portrait is just amazing and you can sorta feel how powerful each pieces are. A lot of the moments captured on film were thematically from the early punk-era and the struggles America went through during that decade but what makes these pictures timeless are how easily it resonates to our generation and what we’re going through as Americans now. War. Famine. Social and economical depressions. And how we overcome it all through music and the freedom of expression. If you didn’t make it out to this event, there’s really no way I can describe how beautifully the photographs were orchestrated.
And the open-bar really didn’t hurt either.
After we left the exhibition, we stumbled upon an art gallery a few doors down. Every inch of the walls were covered with oil paintings that dated as far back as 1975 — though there may be some that are older than that. We conversed with the man behind the amazing experience — Harry Blitzstein — who is an artist in every sense of the word. You can see the passion he has for the craft the moment you walk in. He’s literally filled the place with his hard work from the ‘floor’ up as he’s hand-drawn art pieces on the floor you walk on from the entrance all the way to the back of the gallery. As if that’s not enough, he has a little balcony upstairs as you walk up the old stairway which are also filled with hand-crafted arts and more oil paintings.
All in all, we ended up experiencing more than we expected and it was all well worth it.

These are just some of the wonderful works at Harry Blitzstein’s Museum of Art.

This was my favorite piece and I would LOVE to one day have it displayed on my walls but unfortunately, this one’s not for sale.

These are some of the artworks which litters itself all over the floors. By the looks of it, these drawings must have been done quite a long time ago.

I LOVE THOSE PENCILS!

As you can see from the previous few blogs, I’ve posted a gajillion pictures so I apologize to anyone who still runs on the ancient but not yet deceased 56K modems. I know there are still some of you out there and it pains me to hear of it. Time to upgrade — if not for the SUPER fast speed, then just so you don’t have to hear that annoying dial-tone connecting you to the cyber world. UGH! I hated that sound as much as old drunk people karaoke-ing. UGGGHHH!!!
