ARTS DISTRICT—If you attended last week's Parachute Market, you may have already seen the work of up-and-coming artist Lisa Solberg. The DTLA-based painting and installation artist took over a gold-painted bar at the art fair with her ongoing ghost gallery concept, 24HR Psychic, a project that centers around the concept of self-reflection, metaphysics, and modern philosophy. Now Solberg joins a group of six other talented and burgeoning female artists for Mama Gallery's (1242 Palmetto Street) "To Hide/To Show," an exhibition also focused around the idea of spirituality. The opening takes place this Saturday from 6-9pm.
VENICE—It seems that YouTube phenom Connor Franta has rapidly been adding to his laundry list of titles: entrepreneur, author, and now fashion designer.
