We're Back & Special NOTE to & users

We apologize for the long delay in between posts. Summer here is our time to shut down, as temperatures reach 100+ daily, and traffic is quite slow until mid-October here in Palm Springs. As a result, we have been scrambling to catch up with emails (read about our email glitch that was only corrected this evening), phone calls and shipping (yikes! still a ton of pieces to send out). We look forward to providing you regular updates throughout the coming months.

We have a great show up currently at the gallery entitled THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT featuring JOE LEDBETTER, KORIN FAUGHT, JASON HOUCHEN and JOHN MONN. There are still many great pieces available (with the exception of the JOE LEDBETTER pieces which SOLD OUT pretty much before the show opened). We are hoping to finally get the show online for viewing and sales early next week. These pieces are extremely well priced and you may end up kicking yourself later if you do not act during this exhibition. Note: Joe is the oldest artist at age 27.


We only realized this evening that the email program we used has been blocking out these entire domains the past several months (if not longer). This means that any incoming messages from you did not ever get to us. It was obviously very difficult for us to discover this as we have over 2,300 email subscribers on our list and we actually send out our email newsletters though a different web based program due to the volume. We can not apologize enough for any inconvenience! We really did not mean to ignore you if you sent us a request, question or other correspondence. To add to the confusion you probably wondered why you received our email newletters but not a response from the gallery (again, separate programs used). The problem has been corrected finally this evening and we look forward to hearing from you and showing you the level of service we are capable of providing (as wife laughs in background).

Reception for exhibition
opens this Friday, Oct. 7th
8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Welcome Back!

We apologize for the long delay in posts, however, we were closed for the month of September trying to take some time off and instead dealt with summer colds and kidney stones.

We re-open this month with a great 4 person show entitled:


NOTE: We will have to try and reschedule with Joe Sorren if he is available in the future and apologize to both him and his many fans as we were unable to get the second gallery together in enough time to co-oridnate the show for October with him. Of course, the second gallery actually was completed yesterday, however, we really were unsure as to whether it would be ready on time and wanted to avoid potential disaster. Again, we do apologize as we were looking forward to the print show as well.

Anyway, here are the details for Friday's exciting show:

The Kids Are Alright?
Artist Reception
Friday, Oct. 7th, 8-11pm

4 Person Show Featuring:

Joe Ledbetter
Korin Faught
Jason Houchen
John Monn

*************** PRESS RELEASE READ ****************

Please join us this Friday evening (Oct. 7th) for the opening of "THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT?" exhibition. This show features four tremendously talented young artists that are making waves in the art industry. If you have not yet heard of:

Joe Ledbetter
Korin Faught
Jason Houchin
John Monn

then you are in for a treat. This is your opportunity to purchase artworks from these fast emerging talents while their prices are still somewhat affordable. Be one of the first to discover these talents before they become household names, just like those of you that found Mark Ryden, Shag, Glenn Barr, Gary Baseman & Tim Biskup a few years back.

Each of the artists will be in attendance during the evening and prices of some original art works can be had for as little as $ 65 each (yes, original art). These four artists have been on our radar the past several months and it is finally time to put them out there for you to enjoy too! Don't miss this chance to get in on the ground floor of a growing movement of talented artists that speak for a new generation.

As always, complimentary snacks and refreshmests will be on hand all evening at the gallery. We will also be offering print specials that evening as well on select Shag, Tim Biskup, Glenn Barr, Jeff Soto, Dave Burke and Derek Yaniger prints while quantities last.

Joe Ledbetter is having difficulty keeping up with current demand for his works (originals, prints & toys) and has had little difficulty in booking solo shows for the coming years. Joe will have two of his prints in limited quantities on hand Friday as well as a few of his custom skateboard decks. Have him personalize one for you at the opening before they are all snapped up.

Korin Faught does intoxicating portraits that are sure to make you ponder the chosen subjects in her works. Korin and her other artist friends Natalia, Alison & Chantal seem to draw a crowd wherever they show their works. Look for Korin and these other talented ladies in future m modern gallery shows.

Jason Houchen & John Monn both work in mixed media and put forth their takes and spins on everyday life with an unforgettable implied commentary. The imagery can be intoxicating, disturbing or both (but never boring). These are two of the nicest kids we have had the pleasure of dealing with in the industry and hope you take the time to talk with them at the opening.

Did we mention not one of these artists is over the age of 25? Talk about being ahead of the curve!

Should you be unable to make this opening the show should go online within the next week or two. But why wait when you can make the trip from LA and get an original painting to take home (along with gas) for under $ 100. We hope to see all of you there and please drive safely.

Sincerely,Jay & MiShell
