THIS los angeles presents:
“These Friends 2″
1 year anniversary really big group show.
February 4th, 2011 7-10PM
Gallery hours: Thursday-Saturday 3-7PM
THIS is glad to announce part 2 of the show we kicked it all off with a year ago, These Friends 2. When the 5 of us first conceived this place we all made a list of friends we would like to show a piece and the list quickly grew to over 100 people. It turned out to be a huge success, more people showed up than we knew what to do with, and good times were had. So, let’s do it again. This Friday, February 4th, 7-10 p.m. at THIS los angeles, 5906 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90042. The reception is free and features a DJ and an open bar.

SUBJECT / SUBJECT
An exhibition of female artists benefitting the Downtown Women’s Center
Saturday, April 10th, 2010 / 8-11PM
April 10th – May 8th, 2010
Featuring: Liz McGrath, Jen Stark, Swoon, Monica Canilao, Kime Buzelli, Mona Superhero, Meryl Smith, Mel Kadel, Jessica Hess, Marissa Textor, Jesse Spears, Nikki McClure, and Co-Curator Deedee Cheriel.
Subliminal Projects is pleased to present SUBject/subJECT, a group exhibition opening April 10, featuring works from over a dozen female artists handpicked by the gallery and co-curator Deedee Cheriel.
SUBject/subJECT examines women’s use of public platforms in mass media, inviting both artists and viewers into a dialogue about role models, self-image and the messages women project in both the mainstream and alternative media. Says Cheriel, “Now that women have ‘equal rights,’ what are we trying to say? What’s our subject? Since female artists remain underrepresented in galleries and museums, we created this show as a platform for emerging women artists to represent!”
Ten percent of proceeds from all SUBject/subJECT art sales will go to the Los Angeles Downtown Women’s Center, dedicated to providing permanent, supportive housing and a safe and healthy community for homeless women.
Blood is the New Black is thrilled to support Manifest Equality! We’re offering shirts for sale at the Manifest Equality Pop Up Shop designed by Cali DeWitt for $20 a piece. All profits from sale go to Manifest Equality and their organizations.
In addition to our BITNB tees, come check out art by BITNB artists Dan Monick, Mel Kadel, Jesse Spears and Travis Millard.
Throughout history artists have lent their creative expression to the ideas and issues that shape life in our communities, our country and our world. The MANIFEST EQUALITY Gallery gathers together a diverse array of hundreds of the nation’s most talented visual artists under one roof to celebrate that role and join with our gay (LGBT) friends, family members and co-workers to demand full and equal rights for all Americans.
The MANIFEST EQUALITY Gallery, issues an inspiring, visual call-to-action, with hundreds of artists motivating public energy toward true reform on a local, state and national level.
