On March 18, we dedicated a show to emerging artists. Curated by my son, Jackson Dill, we felt the title “Rumba Rumba” was in keeping with the youthful dynamic of the exhibition. Nine artists, mostly who were born and raised in LA and educated on the East Coast, gathered to show their work. For a handful, this was their first show.
As a quick change artist, I temporarily cleared out my showroom, moving mid-century Paul McCobb, Harvey Probber, Arthur Umanoff pieces – art in and of themselves, to make way for a clean gallery space. The result – a large turnout, great energy and art was sold!
