i've been busy

You may have noticed I haven't been blogging lately. It's not that I don't miss you, it's just... I've been a little busy with this writing thing. And a million other things I don't want to bore you with. So what do I want to bore you with?

Jim and I have been working stealthily on something and now we're ready to let you know - we signed a lease on a retail space on Main Street and together with our partner James Adams, we will launch Raw Materials, an art and architectural supply store, in August 2008. Additionally, we are looking for gallery space to launch Winstead Adams Projects, dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art from emerging artists, in downtown Los Angeles.

Because we don't know any better, we're not letting the lack of a dedicated gallery space deter us. We're producing three art shows in three different gallery spaces downtown - the future home of Raw Materials at 436 S. Main Street, and two corner spaces in the PE Lofts (6th & Main and 6th & Los Angeles Streets):

  • Winstead Adams Projects presents FIRST | LAST, a group exhibition at Raw Materials in downtown Los Angeles

  • Winstead Adams Projects and Phantom Galleries Los Angeles present A Deeper Shade

  • Winstead Adams Projects and Phantom Galleries LA present The Stage, a World

  • I hope you can come by, check out our shows, say hi and give me some grief about not blogging.

    I realize I wasn't making any sense today, but here's what I was trying to explain.

    I have my unit key on a key rope hooked to a belt loop. I keep my car keep separate because I take it out only two or three times a week.

    When I reached my car, I realized that once again I had left my car key in the unit.

    That's why I came up to you at Banquette and stated, "I forgot my car key!"

    I am not sure if this comment will be read since this is an old post. Congratulations on the new venture. I just have one suggestion. On your website, you should list how to get to your store using public transportation.
