Los Angeles Times art critic Christopher Knight devoted a recent column to the new show by photographers and filmmakers Zackary Drucker and Rhys Ernst, "Relationship," at the Luis De Jesus Gallery in Culver City.
Explaining that the show features two videos and 62 photographs that were featured in the Whitney Biennial this year, Knight compares the work to Cathy Opie and calls the works "capital-R Romantic portraits - often dreamy, preternaturally still and imbued with clear and gentle light - of one or the other, or of the couple together" over the course of nearly six years. "Further complicating "Relationship,"" adds Knight, "is its status as a record of a transgender couple. Their bodies are transitioning in opposite directions (for Drucker from male to female, and for Ernst…Continue
Culver City is trying to figure out what would be the best way to help people get the three long blocks from the Culver City Expo Line Station to downtown Culver City--or as they say it, they're "exploring various grant options for the funding of multimodal transportation options."
If you have an opinion about what would be best, GO HERE and take the city's brief survey.

LA Eater is reporting that Culver City's own Muddy Leek restaurant has closed. The "farm-to-table" restaurant in city's Art District that Jonathan Gold called "a comfortable stylish place that serves good food" -- lasted about two years. The space was previously home to Batch Restaurant. No word what will occupy the space next.
Aljean Harmetz, author of The Making of the Wizard Oz, will discuss her book about the classic movie (made in Culver City, of course) at the next general meeting of the Culver City Historical Society on October 15th at 7:30 pm in the Culver CIty Teen Center. The Wizard of Oz is marking its 75th anniversary this year. The public is welcome to join the members of the historical society to enjoy this free program.

In June, Ford's Filling Station in downtown Culver City abruptly closed up shop. Now the Los Angeles Times has some great news: Akasha Richmond, the mastermind behind one of my very favorite Culver City restaurants (uh...Akasha) has signed a lease to take over the space and offer a menu she describes as "Indian-Influenced."
Indian food is, Akasha told the Times, "primarily about spices — masalas and masala blends. It’ll be Indian-influenced, but not a typical Indian restaurant. More small plates and street foods focusing on Indian flavors. But also things you eat at home too. Indian comfort food.”
