Evie Erickson — Solo Show — and Linda Fry

In terms of artists who are trying to get their work out in public, the pandemic was especially unfortunate to artists who had just received their MFAs in 2019. Evie Erickson, for instance, had just finished at California State University, Long Beach, less than a year before it broke out. Her first chance to show a collection of the work done since then is at a small venue in Long Beach and worth your attention.

“SHORE BLOOMS” will be up at Artistic Edge and Framing until June 11, so you still have a month to visit a small section of Long Beach that makes living here worth enduring on a day when the wind ameliorates the air quality. For those who don’t live locally, there are worthwhile spots to drop in on. In fact, I would recommend starting your visit to this neighborhood with a visit to the best political bookstore in Los Angeles County (PAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE).

If you’re visiting on Wednesday through Sunday, your quick food choices include grabbing a delicious treat at GUSTO bakery or heading to Coyote Pizza for a little lunch before you drop in at the gallery.

When you get home, fix a cup of tea and have a virtual stroll through an exhibition that Linda Fry has a painting in:
