Ed Studio/Gallery

Put on your cool clothes and practice your chin-scratching. La Jolla's newest art gallery, Ed, will open its doors for the first time on March 29th. The first exhibit, "You Call That Art?" -- a show on everything perceived as being art, or not being art all -- is a collaboration by completely unknown local wannabe artists; Rob Wells, Donald James, and Parker Siglin. But don't let the show's cerebral-sounding concept or the showy La Jolla zip code intimidate you; there will be no oil landscape paintings exhibited. And you'll probably have fun.

The offbeat ambience created in this La Jolla studio/gallery is hard to find on the surrounding streets. As soon as you see the spray-painted limo, you'll know that this is no ordinary place. Just head up the alley and look for the (r)ed carpet and velvet ropes right next to the Asian restaurant's dumpsters. If it smells like yellow curry, you're on the right track. Up the fire escape you will find La Jolla's newest art gallery, Ed. With its alley entrance and front window art designed by the owners' 1 year old daughter, Ed, (who is the namesake to the gallery), it's definitely the new kid on the block -- and maybe soon to be off the block.

There will be finger sandwiches and fine wine. (French, of course.)

Robert Earl Wells is a formulated, controlled body slam through life, once quoted as being "the Martha Stewart of youth culture" by Fortune Magazine. He operates a small creative group in La Jolla, California, that deals with people from the violin maker down the street to the Fortune 500 company that owns the street. When Robert Earl is not creating corporate art for other people, he enjoys the freedom of creating his own crap. With no guidelines, no bosses and definitely no meetings, he just steals ideas. (Yes, he's the art burglar). His work can be seen hanging at an award-winning restaurant in Houston, sitting next to a Basquiat in a private Las Vegas collection, and taped on a bench next to a homeless man (go figure; this seems to be the trend these days).

Donald James. Born in El Centro. Lives and works in San Diego. Corporate Artist. "Growing up I wanted to be a truck driver, but my fear of rest stops ruined that. Then I skateboarded and surfed, but I wasn't that good, being from El Centro and all. I just never had a dream like Bon Jovi. Two degrees later from San Diego State you just start taking life seriously, so I hear. When it comes to art I am not a natural, I just figure it out."

Parker Siglin. Born 4-5-79. Dropped out of the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, in Vancouver. He is tall and signs artwork as Albert White. Graphic Artist.
