Last Saturday was theJoshua Petker"Black Sugar" art opening at theCorey Helford Galleryin Culver City. Beautiful new paintings (by Petker) adorned the walls, spilling vivid colors into the senses of all who came, and not even the temporary smell of natural gas in the air could keep art lovers from entering the building. CHG provided a wonderfully comfortable and friendly environment, for patrons to enjoy these new works, and for the works to enjoy the patrons. Indeed, either Petkers models had all shown up for the event, or the paintings themselves came to life to mingle, as I could almost swear that some of the women walking the floors of the event, were the same that hung in frames on the walls. Non were caught on film, as is always the case in unexplained events.
