If you’re in the Los Angeles area beginning this Friday, May 3, through June 2, I highly recommend making the trip to La Luz de Jesus Gallery to check out an exhibit by our friend Mark Gleason, better known to many of you as Slim Jade or Mr. Royale. When he’s not hosting Saturday Night Shut-In or otherwise sharing his love of music, Mark is an accomplished San Francisco painter. A couple of years ago a crew from France traveled to interview him. Red Buttons never got interviewed by a French television crew!

I’ve yet to have the opportunity to see Slim’s work in the canvas, so to speak, but he sends me shots of his completed that never fail to impress for their technique and, especially, their “voice.” Break a palette! Or whatever the appropriate wish is for an artist prior to his or her latest opening.
