New Exhibition at Paxton Gate in San Francisco

Six new paintings are now on display in the front Gallery at Paxton Gate's Kids store in San Francisco.  The exhibition will be up until January 12th, 2016.  

"Winter Light"  Gouache, gold ink, hematite and glitter on wood panel.  24" x 36"

I just finished this body of work last week, it's hot off the press.  These are some of the only unsold originals from the past 16 years.  The largest piece, "On the Other Side"  I started 14 years ago in my studio in Chelsea in NYC.  

Paxton has sold my work for the past 5 years, you can find all of my prints for sale in their main store.

Marin Open Studios

You are invited to my current exhibition "Under Stars of Violet" at Trouvé this weekend, May 9th and 10th.  The gallery will be open Friday through Sunday 11 am - 6pm as well as by appointment.  I am showing an entirely new body of work.

Please call me at 415 939 6901 if you would like to come by outside of these hours.


Lela's Work featured in Juxtapoz Magazine

Lela's work was recently featured in the Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine - a magazine created in 1994 by a group of artists and collectors to both help define and celebrate urban alternative and underground contemporary art. Juxtapoz launched with the mission of connecting modern genres like psychedelic and hot rod art, graffiti, street art, and illustration, to the context of broader more historically recognized genres of art like Pop, assemblage, old master painting, and conceptual art. Although based in San Francisco, Juxtapoz was founded upon the belief in the virtues of Southern California pop culture and the freedom from the conventions of the "established" New York art world. 

As of 2009, Juxtapoz had the largest circulation of any art magazine in the United States, more than established counterparts like Art NewsArt in America, and ArtForum. In addition to printed subscriptions which offer alternative cover images to the newsstand version, Juxtapoz is also available as an online digital subscription. Juxtapoz is published by High Speed Productions, in San Francisco, California.
