We celebrated our Grand Opening Reception a couple weeks ago! We had an amazing time! So Many of you came out to enjoy in the festivities and it was so wonderful to see each and every one of you! Lighting Design was perfected by my favorite lighting designer Amber Yin of AmberYinProductions.
Amber and her team used up lighting, washes and pin-spots to really bring my works to life. Lighting is a necessity to any event and can often have more of an impact than the decor. Then there was DJ Raj from Sound Nation who rocked the house with eclectic sounds of M.I.A, Bob Marley, John Mayer and more (per my request, not sure if these are his typical play requests! :). We transformed our warehouse into a chic black, white and red lounge with lush fur rugs, white leather benches and hundreds of red roses, dahlia’s and daisies.
Then there was the food…OMG! I love Sienna Spencer, food writer for Edible Los Angeles and Food Artista who served up mini-plated servings of Spicy Edamame, Chicken Kabaage Skewers with Wasabi-Ranch dipping sauce; Dim Sum Bun with Creme Fraiche and Caviar, Cold Vietnamese Noodle salad with mint-Cilantro Vinaigrette and Asian-Citrus Shrimp with Soy-Bean Avocado Puree..makes me want to have her come over tonight and cook for me more!
Catering Assistance and floor support was provided by the ever so attentive and helpful Jennifer and her team of SpareHands. Entertainment was provided by a local Taiko Drum and Odori (traditional Japanese Dance) Group. Their performance was breathtaking and made everyone in attendance stop and watch their amazing performances.
