Top Tomato Gallery Opens in Mar Vista

top tomato gallery opens in mar vista!

You say tomato. We say Top Tomato at Alt/Space.

Either way you slice it, there’s lots to love about the gallery-cum-community space opening in Mar Vista this weekend.

Kicking off the neighborhood salon’s run is artist Cynthia Wylie’s “Sitting Room.” Make yourself at home in the pseudo-parlor outfitted with Wylie’s custom wallpaper, embroidered pillows, and oil paintings (all for sale), along with pieces by locals like woodworker Samuel Moyer and Pad Outdoor planters.

Gather every weekend during the run of the show to nosh on braised sweet-and-sour catfish, pulled pork fried rice, and chicken egg rolls, courtesy of Earl’s Gourmet Grub around the corner.

Sunday afternoons during the farmers market, you’re encouraged to avoid technological interference with your fellow art-goers by checking your phone at the door. Who can argue with that?

Top Tomato at Alt/Space, 3815 Grand View Boulevard, between Venice Boulevard and Pacific Avenue, Mar Vista (424-835-1167 or altspace-la.com).
