The Temple of Art exhibit and book premieres at La Luz De Jesus Gallery on December 5, 2014 with an artist reception from 8-11pm. Temple of Art is an ongoing art and photography project over two years in the making. What started as a unique conversation between photographer Allan Amato and over 50 artists evolved into a book being published by Baby Tattoo, a bi-coastal gallery show, a prime-time panel at Comic-Con 2014 and a feature length documentary successfully funded by Kickstarter. The Temple of Art provides an insightful look into the lives of some of our favorite working artists by following the progress of the collaborations from conception to completion, documenting the process in the film and book and finally revealing the works in person at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. The gallery is located at 4633 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA. 90027 and Temple of Art will run until December 28.

Critically Acclaimed Production "ALMOST, MAINE" by John Cariani returns to Los Angeles with Stellar Cast
Opening December 5th through December 21st in a limited engagement at The Hudson Mainstage, 539 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA. 90038.
Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States – It’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So, it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite. In this Los Angeles production, director Martin Papazian leads his ensemble and audiences alike through the story of nine couples falling in and out of love in this beautifully poetic and magical love story.

Los Angeles, CA –John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame) will perform an unforgettable night of holiday mischief with his critically acclaimed one man show, A John Waters Christmas on December 5th at The Comedy Store. Waters pokes fun at the holiday season with adult-appropriate humor, effectively “putting the X in Xmas,” developing a show for the open minded and slightly left-of-center audience.
The cult classic, Baltimore-born filmmaker began his Hollywood success with now Broadway classic, Hairspray in 1988. Claiming his playful nicknames “Pope of Trash” and “Prince of Puke,” he maintains his image through his filmmaking and his personal presentation. Regarded as a shocking entertainer, John Waters carefully chooses his material and exploits it through a dirty lens. “It’s my obsession with Christmas: what I want for Christmas, what you should want, how to handle every holiday disaster,”Waters says. His rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories. Delving into his passion for lunatic exploitation Christmas movies and the unhealthy urge to remake all his own films into seasonal children’s classics, “The Pope of Trash” will give you a Joyeaux Noel like no other.
