MOTHER'S LITTLE HELPER

Online Show Only

Opens Saturday, July 20, 2019 *5p

What gets you through your busy day? In The Rolling Stones song, "Mother's Little Helper', Mick describes a little yellow pill that does the trick, but really, most everyone has something that "helps them on their way, gets them through their busy day". For this show, we asked artists to tell us how they deal with the vagaries and stressors of life and keep the doldrums at bay. 

Participating artists:  Douglas Alvarez, Ulla Anobile, Skye Becker-Yamakawa, Terri Berman, Andrea Bogdan, Catherine Bursill Moore, Lacey Bryant, Anna Chung, Nancy Cintron, Janae Corrado, Fran De Anda, Lori Herbst, Veronica Jaeger, Lydia Moon Hee Kim, JL King, Mavis Leahy, Kahla Lewis, Milka Lolo, Snow Mack, Emma Mount, Nichol Norman, Janet Olenik, Amy Owers, Tania Pomales, Myriam Powell, Joshua Roman, Fleur Spolidor, Jen Starling, Linnea Strid, Kelly Vetter, Joe Vollan, Michelle Waters, Simone Young and more.

LOTERIA! V ~ Pop Up Show

RECEPTION: Saturday, September 21 * 6p-9p

Scheduled to run: September 21 - October 1, 2019

ADDRESS: Mezzanine of The Last Bookstore, 453 S Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90013

Lotería is a traditional Mexican game of chance, similar to bingo, that uses images on a deck of cards instead of plain numbers. There are 54 images; each has a name and an assigned number. The cards are very colorful and the imagery on them is broadly recognized in all of Mexico, other Latin American countries, as well as European nations. 

The most recognized version of Lotería is the “Don Clemente Gallo” rendition which was introduced in Mexico in 1887 by the French businessman, Don Clemente Jacques. The owners today own the registered trademark and have continued this version through 3 generations with the original artwork remaining the same.

All 54 images of the original deck will be represented in the show. Here is a link to the original Loteria set: http://loteria.elsewhere.org/clemente1/  

In addition, artists are creating cards from a second set of Loteria cards #55 - 108.  These works will be 3" x 5" max.  Here is a link to the lesser known set, which is equally fun ~ http://loteria.elsewhere.org/clemente2a/
