event at Milagro Allegro, Highland Park, Los Angeles 10/6/2012



Please join us at David Weldzius' Highland Park Community Garden plot this Sunday, June 10 for an exhibition of new work by Laura Aldridge. Entitled LAxLA, the show's site specific pieces look to the garden as a place of possible hospitality, probable nurturing, and certain excess. Employing glowing language, relational table cloths, and cut-and-paste graphic design, Aldridge's new works were created during her recent two-month stay in Los Angeles. They celebrate the finely wrought fecundity of an idealized California landscape as well as call upon the people who populate that landscape to make it a truly transformative, emotional space. Aldridge proposes that there is no land of milk and honey without someone to make the jugs and pots that hold the milk and honey! Hey Honey, Got Milk? Yes, says Aldridge: we can have it all right here.
