If you’re in LA in early May, you may want to check out a new Gary Baseman art show at the Corey Helford Gallery, billed as “La Noche de la Fusión”:

…a colorful and climactic solo exhibition of new works by Pervasive Los Angeles artist Gary Baseman. Joining Corey Helford for the first time, Baseman will transform the gallery into a Carnivalesque festival celebrating the beauty of the bittersweetness of life. His new works of paintings and sculptures culminate in a synergetic event fusing visual art and a pan-cultural celebration. Open to the public, “La Noche de la Fusión” kicks off with an outdoor festival at 6:30pm followed by a gallery reception from 7 to 10pm on Saturday, May 2. Guests are encouraged and welcome to wear costumes to the opening, and the exhibition will be on view until May 23, 2009.



  1. I USED to love Baseman’s stuff. Remember the Disney movie “Teacher’s Pet?” That was cool, an animated Gary Baseman show. Now his stuff has become repetitive and derivative. He’s even taken on the “dripped” look, which is reminiscent of Camille Rose Garcia. Sorry, I’m so bored with this, and I used to be a big fan. What a huge disappointment. Where does he go from here?

  2. Where does he go? He has a huge extravaganza multi-media party/festival/holiday/art opening. And everyone has fun and loves the art.
