The Warehouse re-opening Saturday with a “high end vintage” focus

The Warehouse LA is re-opening after a few weeks of renovations of the Echo Park vintage store. The redesign focuses on “one-of-a-kind Estate Vintage, a high-end collection available for Stylist pulls and rentals, and an improved community Art Gallery and Event Space.”

And why not celebrate with a little party? The Warehouse is introducing its new changes to the public on on Saturday, September 29 at 7:00 pm with a DJ and refreshments.

Eleven97 is on of the new spaces located within The Warehouse, showcasing new and emerging artists based in Los Angeles. The first exhibition features artist Joshua Mark Logan, which  will be his first solo exhibition of this new body of work, Bald Eagles.

The LOFT is a collection of estate vintage with designers like Louis Vuitton, Prada, Valentino, and Lanvin. It’s by appointment only available to stylist rentals and the public. Call The Warehouse LA at 213-361-0021 for appointments.

Frogtown Artwalk returns on Saturday

If you’re taking a break from LA Beer Week (although it wouldn’t be entirely without beer, we did enjoy some delicious Eagle Rock Brewery beer last year), head over to Elysian Valley – that little strip of homes and art warehouses just north of Echo Park along the Los Angeles River – for the annual Frogtown Artwalk.

This is the seventh year the community-run event will go on, taking place on Saturday, September 22 from 4:00 – 9:00 pm. It’s a self-guided tour along Blake Avenue, where more than 30 artists, craftsmen, artisans and architects all open their studio doors to the public to view art installations and to just chat about what they do. This year there will also be mobile galleries featuring artists from other parts of Los Angeles.

I See Hawks in LA will perform at RAC DesignBuild at 3006 N. Coolidge Avenue from 6:30-8:00 pm. RAC will also host a Children’s Juried Art Show.

A Hoola Hoop Contest will be held at TAS Architect at 2041 Blake Avenue starting at 5:30 pm, ending with prizes for adults and kids.

Kid’s Sidewalk Chalk Drawing will be held at the  Blake Avenue Lofts at 1839 Blake Avenue from 4:00–9:00 pm.

Local landscape painter Mary-Austin Klein will also be showing her work at the art walk, as well as other return artists like Allen Anderson of Grain Surfboards showing hollow hand-made wooden surfboards.

For your rumbling tummy, bring some cash along and check out the many local vendors and food trucks, including Elysian Valley’s own Tacos by Kevin (delicious burritos!!).

There’s a lot going on, so be sure to check back here or visit the event website on September 22 for the event map with all the details. View photos from last year’s artwalk on Atwater Village Now’s Facebook page.
