That is when The Skirball Cultural Center will graciously allow the first ever Annual Art Affaire LA show to be held in the Skirball’s elegant Guerin Pavilion on Friday, May 20th and Saturday, May 21st. But first, here is a little history on the genesis of Art Affaire LA.
Beginning in 1985, the Contemporary Crafts Market was held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium until that venue closed three years ago. From there the CCM moved to the Pasadena Convention Center, where the CCM continued to put on their annual June and November shows. That is, until this year. When long time CCM vendor Jane Mohr learned that the 2016 June show had been cancelled, she sprang into action, because, as she says, “It left a lot of vendors homeless this June.” That’s when this admitted “Triple ‘Type A’ Personality” decided to turn this challenge into her first art show.
