Recommended openings to catch this weekend...

Recommended openings to catch this weekend...
The kickoff of the fall art season starts this weekend. Sooo many killer openings, I wish I could clone myself. We'll be sure to post a lil' 'art adventure' photo recap come Sunday afternoon here. As always, this is just a sampling of the shows we plan to go see and/or endorse. By no means a complete listing of all that is going down in LA this weekend, but I'd suggest any of these if asked as all promise great art and a good time.
