Things I Love


One among many semi-annual local events that is much anticipated and looked artSHOW in Beverly Hills.  The event (held the third weekend in May and October) has been going on for 44 years(!) and attracts not only locals but folks from all over SoCal. As both months are ideal weather-wise, this event makes for a fun outing.  And, as a side note, the show and gardens are completely dog friendly which makes for lots of canine interactions.


                       The beautiful Beverly Gardens Park are ideal                       for the show’s setting with meandering paths

Area of the show is shown above.
Food trucks (seen below) are located on Canon Drive
which is closed to north/south traffic as is Beverly Drive.
When one is a regular attendee, the opportunity to create relationships with the artists is pretty much a sure thing.  In fact, we’ve found them to be most gracious — and that includes the offer of coming to one’s home to see if a piece of art fits.   The hubby is seen below with artist Sang Choi.  After considering one of his pieces last year, he not only brought it to our home but he and his wife helped us move pieces around to find the perfect spot.  We bought the piece and love it.  
In addition to art, sculpture and jewelry from 240 artists, there is non-stop music (see below) plus two areas offering traditional seating with either “Beer & Brat” or “Wine & Dine.”  And, if that weren’t enough, the location is just a short block from a variety of restaurants on several nearby streets.
So, mark your calendars for the next show in May 2017.  You never know who you might run into as evidenced by the unplanned but happy encounter with my sister Janie and her husband Richard at last year’s show.  Maybe next time she and I will check our calendars beforehand and spend more than a few minutes chatting!
