November's 15 Minutes speaker is Marsea Goldberg. Marsea is founder and director of LA's New Image Art. She started the gallery in 1994 in her West Hollywood 10x10 design studio. Since then, the gallery has grown to attract a global cult following, grabbing the interest of art lovers and collectors worldwide. Renowned for her discriminating eye and solid curatorial skills, New Image Art Gallery continues to show the works of established and emerging artists coming out of the street, skate, fine art, and surf scenes. Over the years, the gallery has launched or mobilized the careers of Shepard Fairey, Ed Templeton, Jo Jackson, Chris Johanson, Rich Jacobs, Rebecca Westcott, Neckface, Cleon Peterson, Faile, Tauba Auerbach, Matt Leines, the Date Farmers, Judith Supine, and Bäst just to name a few.
This past year Marsea joined a lecture panel on the topic of Street Art at the MOCA and just recently her gallery was rated the best booth at LA Art Platform 2011 by the Huffington Post.

"15 minutes with . . . ." invites a person of interest from the arts community to spend 15 minutes, within the two hour time we have, to talk about themselves, their work, or anything else they might care to expound on. No formal question period will occur during the presentation so that we can continue the main purpose of the evening, which is to socialize.  And of course those who wish may engage with the speaker afterward. We welcome your feedback and any suggestions you have as to speakers you would like to see invited. As usual good food, drinks, and especially interesting people will be there.

Location: At the point of Sunset Boulevard and Holloway Drive, two blocks east of San Vicente. I suggest avoiding traffic on Sunset Boulevard and approach from Holloway or Palm Drive - or go north on San Vicente and turn right two blocks.
Parking: Meters on Sunset, Holloway and in the City parking lot across the street, on the north side of Sunset next to the Coffee Bean.

Purpose: socializing, networking, hanging out, meeting the arts community in West Hollywood and Greater Los Angeles.

And remember that we are creating a safe environment for curators and gallerists to socialize and meet within the community. No pitching or portfolio sharing allowed.
