The Dead Need To Be Fed by Sonya Fe/Avenue 50 Gallery

The gallery scene is heating up with several new shows opening on Saturday, including Brushes of Fire, featuring recent paintings by Sonya Fe (whose work is pictured above) and Margaret Garcia at Avenue 50 Studio in Highland Park.  Saturday also marks the return of the Monterey Hills Jazz Festival for its 15th year while the new Boyle Heights new book shop and lending library, Libros Schmibros, hosts a reading of Wherever There’s A Fight in Boyle Heights.  Tonight, the family-friendly E.T.: The Extraterrestrial will be screened outdoors during this summer’s last Atwater Movie Nights.  More events in Save the Date

  2. This painting reminds me of a 1981 poem written by Barack Obama while at nearby Occidental College:


    Under water grottos, caverns
    Filled with apes
    That eat figs.
    Stepping on the figs
    That the apes
    Eat, they crunch.
    The apes howl, bare
    Their fangs, dance,
    Tumble in the
    Rushing water,
    Musty, wet pelts
    Glistening in the blue.
