a solo show of Original Artwork by JOE LEDBETTER
& A STRANGE AND LUSTY HEART a solo show of Original Paintings by ALEX MEYER this
Saturday, September 30th, 7-10 pm
Hello Everyone,

Please join us for two solo exhibitions that open this weekend featuring SUPERSTITIOUS a solo show of original works by JOE LEDBETTER and A STRANGE AND LUSTY HEART a solo show of original works by ALEX MEYER. Both artist receptions to be held this Saturday, September 30th , from 7- 10 pm . Don't miss this opportunity to meet both JOE LEDBETTER & ALEX MEYER in person.


IF you haven't heard of JOE LEDBETTER in the past year or two, then you are either hiding under a rock, not familiar with the L.A. Art Scene or perhaps just need a more formal introduction.

Joe's numberous SOLD OUT shows have people from all over the world scrambling to get the opportunity to own one of his fun, playful and extremely well excuted paintings. SUPERSTITOUS is his most abitious show to date (according to Joe himself) and is inspired by MYTH, LEGEND and FANTASY. JOE's multiple characters have been taking the toy world by storm and, judging from current EBAY prices, selling out much faster than they can be produced. The real treasures though are his much coveted original paintings. We can't guaranty you will be able to obtain a painting from the SUPERSTITIOUS exhibition, however, if you email us fast at you may be one of the lucky ones to eventually hang one of these on your walls.

NOTE: We are hoping to receive a preview from JOE in the next day or two and will be making calls to those of you on the waiting list. We are also hoping to offer around 5 or so originals for sale at the gallery the evening of the reception for people that make the trip to Palm Springs.

Again, please email to or call us at 760 774-8474 to be added to the JOE LEDBETTER WAIT LIST.


We will be also be featuring A STRANGE AND LUSTY HEART, a solo show of tantalizing original pieces by ALEX MEYER that are given no justice in this email (sorry for the poor jpeg quality). To briefly step into the mind of ALEX MEYER all one has to do is read his biography below:

Born in 1974, the conspicuous vitality in cartoons and comic book imagery held an early fascination on the young mind of Alex Meyer. However, it wasn't until much later that he abandoned a practical career course and committed himself to art. Graduating from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver with a BFA in Illustration, he has strived to improve as a painter and illustrator.

His paintings have been shown at DC Gallery and Th'Ink Tank of Denver, and he has participated in group shows at La Luz de Jesus and m modern gallery. A mixture of cartoons, pinup, and fantasy art, his work is a product of the rigors of technique haunted by the cravings of the flesh, of proportion in conflict with depravity, of optimism coupled with irony. The aim of this petty psychologist can best be stated in the abstract: to take it to the naked edge - and, of course... beyond!


Our very own (OK, so what if he is a big name Hollywood DJ too!) DJ VICTOR RODRIGUEZ will be spinning the night away at the opening reception. Also, thanks to SMIRNOFF for the continued support and sponsorship of our exhibitions and look for some special Vodka cocktails being served that evening. Come to the reception to enjoy the amazing artwork, visit Palm Springs and relax with a refreshing cocktail or two (no more than that please - our attorney's had us put that last note in).
