n the red carpet tradition that is LA, an unassuming gallery sits tucked away on Highland ave in the slowly but surely gentrified Mid-city area. Hidden by a wall of leaves similar to those expensive homes in Beverly Hills that hide celebs from stalkers and the like sits Kayne Griffin Corcoan. A gallery really like no other in LA because of its massive space that has several rooms on par with museums. Hell, I would suffice to say that this is probably a museum, that is why they left off the trademark gallery wording at the end of their name.

But wow! Just Wow! I was blown away more by the space and ample garden surroundings then the art on display that night. Not that it was bad, it was quite refined but the space just said "love me." The gallery has some really nice features such as a conference room with a Skyscape installation that changes colors every mili-second, and a private Perceptual Cell chamber hidden in a back room behind the office space. Griffin and Corcoran are the big bucks dealers behind the operation handling blue chip artists. Corcoran alone has been in the business for over thirty years to this date and I would guess he is a relative to William Wilson Corcoran the founder of the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., but I have been wrong before.

The opening reception on April 2nd was catered and who doesn't love tacos. I was digging Michael Bell Smith's multimedia art-piece "Flames Clock", with four video tv's of fire with clocks placed in different locations on the screens. It was a fun night and I hope to attend more of the gallery openings especially if they cater the receptions with more Mexi-American food.
