Paint the Town!

| February 23, 2012 | Parties National

THE PARTY Art-dealing darling Alexander Salazar celebrated the grand opening of his sixth—yes, we said sixth—art space in La Jolla. THE ART Local painter Erik Skoldberg exhibited his newest work on canvas—think contemporary, vibrant and expressionistic. Famed New York sculptor Kevin Barrett flew in for the celebration, showcasing his three-dimensional visions, and as always, Salazar’s hand-picked masterpieces left guests in awe. “Barrett is strong yet sensual,” Salazar says. “He does sexy forms and lines in metal with bold, confident colors.” THE HIGHLIGHTS Prospect Street had never been so bumping (or cool). Guests spilled onto the street, sipping cocktails from Snake Oil Cocktail Co. and nibbling modern fare courtesy of Campine Catering. And the soundtrack? Grammy-nominated jazz artist Sacha Boutros crooned alongside The Mikan Zlatkovich Trio as guests decided which piece to take home. Photography by Jeff Corrigan
