Steven Baldi Opening Reception
Friday, September 14, 6-8 PM
This Friday, Thomas Duncan Gallery throws an opening reception honoring Steven Baldi, a visionary who puts as much emphasis on his show’s announcement as he does on his work itself. Baldi will display ten paintings and a set of sculptures that will be reconfigured weekly during the exhibit’s five-week run. 6109 Melrose Ave., 310-494-1177
Fletch at Barnsdall Art Park
Saturday, September 15, 5:30-10:30 PM
Pack a picnic and enjoy a Saturday evening screening of the Chevy Chase classic, Fletch, on the West Lawn of Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Hollyhock House. Arrive early (5:30 PM) for a beer and wine tasting hosted by City Sip, or at 7:30 PM for the film. Each week through October 27, Barnsdall Art Park will showcase a different film that highlights LA’s architecture, with proceeds benefiting their art programs. 4800 Hollywood Blvd., 323-660-4254
