About Us

Unless you’ve been cloistered in a monastery or have been using a flip phone for the past decade, you’ll know that the hotbed of contemporary art has moved from points East to Los Angeles. With more than 150 already-established galleries and new museums opening at a record pace, this exploding art market is the driving force for ART NOWLA. Tracking the trends and taking readers/viewers behind the scenes, ART NOWLA explores the fine arts – painting, sculpture, photography, assemblages and mixed media – in exuberant and fresh ways. Whether you’re an artist, gallery aficionado, collector or scenester, you’ll love ART NOWLA as we traverse the city for the latest in cool. In other words: Welcome to the woke world of ART NOWLA and follow us as we roam the streets from Hollywood-Highland, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and LaBrea/mid-Wilshire, to the avenues of Pasadena, Culver City and Chinatown. And if you’ve got any hot tips you’d like to share, ART NOWLA is also on the prowl for great writers, interviewers, photographers, filmmakers, artists and, well, bar-hoppers. Yes, we’d even like to know what’s your go-to drink or bar as part of your art-viewing ritual. Please join us on this aesthetic journey in the City of Angels and tell us your thoughts.
