TOP TEN ART PARTIES / Events - February 2018

Check out our updated Additional Events Page (just below) for more art parties taking place this coming weekend. Then on February 15, 2018, we will post our final list for the last half of February.

As I am sure most of you know by now...we lost a brilliant artist last month - Ed Moses left this earth on January 17, 2018. I attended an opening for an exhibition featuring new works the day before he passed. He continued to paint until the end and made a huge impact on the art world. Ed was 91. A few years back I had the chance to spend a bit of time with him while interviewing him for an article for the Santa Monica Mirror...he was quite a character...Thank you Ed for sharing your talent with us. We will miss you!
