Las Pinturas de la Fiesta

Sullivan Goss Hosts an Old Spanish Days-themed Exhibition


PAINTING THE TOWN: The whole city gets involved when it comes to Old Spanish Days. Sullivan Goss Gallery — An American Gallery is no exception — in recent years, the gallery has shown its spirit by displaying “La Bamba” by painter Jesus Helguera, who is considered the Norman Rockwell of Mexico. This year, Sullivan Goss decided to present an entire exhibition of Fiesta-oriented art. Called Las Pinturas de la Fiesta, the installment features oils from artists spanning the 20th century. Pictured above is a mural by Juan Goya Usamo rendered in 1941. The large painting hung in The Spanish Kitchen restaurant in L.A. until its 1961 closure. This is the first public showing of the piece since that time. The show runs through August 31. 7 E. Anapamu St. 730-1460; sullivangoss.com.
