The Venice gallery is going to be closed this weekend because of "Carmageddon." For those of you who don't live in LA, basically the city is closing down the 405 freeway this weekend for construction. The media has made us believe that this is the worst thing to ever happen to LA and that no one should leave their homes. They've seriously been preparing us for this catastrophe for months, and their scare tactics totally worked because we are not going to brave the mean LA freeways this weekend. None of us Gallery1988 staffers live in the Venice/Santa Monica area, and we know how bad commuting is on a normal day, so we don't want to see the carmageddon chaos up close.
Instead we will all be at the Melrose gallery! So Venice is closed, but Melrose is open Saturday & Sunday from 11am - 6pm. We do apologize for this inconvenience. If you need us, please contact the Melrose location at 323-937-7088.
