Black Woman Sidekick has just finished tacking up the last charcoal bicycle sketch for this month’s exhibition, “The Still Lives of Bicycles” inside Flying Pigeon LA and a sister show at the Bike Oven that is being called “Surrealist Bike Stories”. Both shows will run until April 7, 2010.

These were created by neighbors and friends at the Bike Oven over the course of several days. The work of Veronica Jaregui, Brian Bonilla, Gillermo Guerra (our resident Under-10 artist), and several others is featured.

Since the opening for these shows is happening today, now is probably a good time to invite you out on the Spoke(n) Art Ride this Saturday, March 13 2010! We’re going to tour art galleries on bikes, then finish where we started (at the shop) and take in the art on the walls.

This month, the ride begins at the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop (3404 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065) and Bike Oven (3706 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065) at 7 p.m.

We’re going to ride from the shop up to the intersection of Figueroa and York (the traditional meeting point for the ride the past three years), and then out around the neighborhood to visit art galleries, pocket parks, parties, and backyard taco vendors until we return to the Bike Oven/Flying Pigeon LA complex around 10 p.m.

For more information about the ride, take a look at the Bike Oven’s static page for the Spoke(n) Art Ride.

I’ve snapped a few photos of the show that has gone up inside Flying Pigeon LA. If you don’t mind digging through a Flickr photo set, you can see some pictures of The Still Lives of Bicycles I snapped as they went up on the walls.
