Westside Properties 2814 Abbot Kinney Washington

Westside Properties celebrates their new location at 1st Fridays with an art reception from 5-8pm.
They just moved in to the cute beach house,  closer to Washington Blvd. so this is a great starting point for the evenings festivities. Say hello to Dominic, Jennifer and Josh, plus enjoy drinks and snacks.  Artists Jennifer Pacquette will show her Mid Century Modern inspired images of Palm Springs and Seamus Conley will wow you with his surreal yet lifelike paintings, plus sculpture from Mermade.

Robin’s Sculpture Garden

Walking just past Venice Blvd., see the newest and hottest salon, The Harlot, (see the previous post for more info on this salon)… you might want to stop at nearby Lemonade first for a unique flavor of lemonade or healthy eats… across the street you will find an outdoor sculpture garden called Robin’s Sculpture Garden for large scale sculpture and a great scene there too. Last time there were cool aerial performers in the outdoor space.

Come back, we will be adding more to our 1st Fridays listings!
