Ethos Gallery: “Ascending Humans” Draws Stars, Artists, Art Stars

Posted by


Thursday night, Ethos Gallery on Melrose glowed from within at the invitation-only artists reception celebrating the group show, “Ascending Human–A Journey Into Consciousness.” In attendance so many great artists, gallery owners, and curators, plus guitar superstar Slash; and CARTWHEEL’s Cindy Schwarzstein, Dana Nichols, and Luis Ochoa. Cindy shot our first video (she claims it was an accident!) which has gone up in this post and on our new YouTube flow where we’ll be posting  future artist interviews and more video of shows.

“Ascending Human” runs through January 24.
