WJune8 KarrieRoss Booksigningow….there is just too much going on this weekend….The good news is artist and author Karrie Ross will be featured in a book signing and reception during the day….SATURDAY (1-4 pm).

Karrie is a busy woman, her work will also be a part of the Topanga Canyon Gallery Tour reception (at the gallery). See Saturday’s listing. So you can start your art party early then head to several others….to see how many you can work in.

I’ll be starting at Karrie’s event. In fact, I’ll be singing and playing some guitar along with Phil Kimball. It should be a lovely event featuring some renowned authors and artists. It takes place at Continental Art Supplies in the valley.

My PIck of Topangalogothe Week is the annual Topanga Canyon Gallery Studio tour which takes place all weekend….June 8th and 9th. What a fabulous way to spend the weekend. See my article in this Friday’s Santa Monica Mirror. It’s a review of last year’s event. I had such a good time.

LA Art Party is raffling off two tickets to the tour….see our Facebook Page for all the details and you could win!

You can visit twenty two venues and see the work of over forty artists. Enjoy art demonstrations as well as works in progress in working studios.
