The Goddesses and Gods group show at the Lisa Derrick Gallery in Chinatown opened on June 22, 2019. It was a costume party for the artists and customers. It was also Gallery owner Lisa Derrick’s birthday. Artists included Clive Barker, Rick Castro, COOP, Sequoia Emmanuelle, Sandra Equihua, Golgo, Brian Grillo, Eva Malhotra Aline Mare, Rodriel Trammell, and Stephanie Vega.

Early punk pioneers Hal Negro and the Satintones, once a side project of Arthur J and the Gold Cups, were back in a new incarnation called Marty Gold and the Gold Standard, playing obsure rock. There was also a floorshow by way of all of the divine themed costumes.

Meanwhile, a block down Chungking road, Matt Gleason’s Coagula Curatorial was rocking a new art show called—Gods and Goddesses! The two galleries were presenting shows in tandem. Matt Gleason wore his Golden duper power loafers. Miss Mercy and Pamela Des Barres were also at the wonderful show.

The art in both galleries bridged the heavens and the earth. The Gods are aliens. It was a great night for shape shifting. What a way to celebrate the solstice!

The show will be on display at Lisa Derrick Fine Arts and Coagula Curatorial through July 20, 2019
