It's L.A. Arts Month. Take a look, take some home. If you are an avid art collector like I am and live in the Los Angeles area, this is a great month to fuel your passion for collection. My favorite is the Los Angeles Art Show which for the second year will be held downtown at the Los Angeles Convention Center starting with the Opening Gala next Wednesday evening with proceeds going to P.S. Arts. Hope to see you there.
