World renowned Fine Art curator, writer and critic Edward Lucie-Smith has put together works from 29 artists, including names like Presneill, Zakharov, Waller, Cristi, Aestes, Maddock and de Cadanet is  to be exhibited across both GARBOUSHIAN GALLERY in Beverly Hills, CA and slightly closer to WSmad’s home at the Torrance Art Museum.

This exhibition is a demonstration from some of modern art’s finest that the movement toward smaller art is afoot.  For years, large works requiring entire concrete-tilt-up walls have dominated the avant-garde, but recently, fine artists have begun working toward more modestly sized pieces – though certainly not modest in technique, style, or story.

Polemically Small will open at GARBOUSHIAN GALLERY on May 21st, 2011 in Beverly Hills Golden Triangle district.

Torrance’s Nick Peters: How to Find and Buy Foreclosures, Short Sales and Pocket Properties

Nick Peters is at it again with one of his ridiculously informative seminars about REO’s (Foreclosure Sales).  We can’t wait to go because even though we’re not in the market for a Foreclosure at the moment, it’s incredibly informative, entertaining, and provides valuable insight into the economy of Torrance, the Beach Cities, and the United States.Nick Peters Foreclosure Seminar

We checked this out before and we’re glad he’s doing it again.  This month’s seminar is Tuesday, April 19th at HT Grill from 7 – 9pm.  If you haven’t yet RSVP’d, there is a slight chance you can fit in to his packed house.  Call Sabine at (31) 543-9999 ext 25.

Now, if you ARE in the market for a Foreclosure and you don’t go – you’re missing out on some of the most critical FREE information you could ever ask for.  Even if you think you know it all, trust me – you don’t.  With over 20 years in the area dealing with the ups and downs, the celebrations and the menacing pitfalls associated with purchasing Bank Owned property, Nick Peters of Peters Realty Center is simply the Expert on the situation, bad or good.

Nick also invests heavily in his own, proprietary, most complete, up-to-date list of properties on the planet.  So if you think you know about a property in Foreclosure, Nick can tell you all about it – the truth in fact, not just what some organization may report about it six months ago.

Nick – as residences of Redondo Beach, we thank you for this invaluable information!  Keep doing what you do, and we’ll see you Tuesday!

The Wally Parks NHRA Museum Will Be Rockin’ This Weekend During the Winternationals!

The Winternationals at Pomona
The Winternationals are happening at Pomona this weekend

As drag racing in the United States gets kicked off this weekend in it’s spiritual home of Pomona, California, thousands will come to see 10,000 horsepower Top Fuel Dragsters duel to over 300 miles per hour over an 1/8th mile straight.  It is an ear-smashing, spine-rollicking phenomena, among the most spectacular in the world of motorsports and indeed of industrial capacity.

But a few of those spectators might forget to take the journey around the corner to the museum, which will be open for business and displaying the roots of that spectacle – where it all started and the journey that brought the sport where it is.  Inside the museum, there are Funny Cars (1000 bhp+ monsters that look a little bit more like the cars we drive every day than the rocketship-esque Top Fuel Dragsters), land speed record breakers, hot rods, and amazing pieces of technical and artistic marvel from throughout Pomona’s, California’s, and the World’s collective search for speed and power.

For serious gearheads, a trip to the museum could take an hour or more – but for the more casual spectator, you can rush through and get a flavor in 15 – 30 minutes.  The museum gift shop has truly unique apparel and models that are difficult to find anywhere else – and make for the best souvenirs of the weekend.

So while you’re in awe of the cars racing down the dragstrip this year and you decide your ears and body just need a break, take respite in the phenomenal Wally Parks Motorsports Museum – any stop every good gearhead needs to make.
