The amount of art intake us Angeleno’s absorb and appreciate (and tout through our smartphone’s social addiction) seem to be never ending. This is a good thing. We always love an opening night, a closing reception, an up-close look at some orgasmic photography now don’t we. In our latest arts and culture homage, The Opulence Issue, we’ve compiled our September / October 2014 list of must-sees. Take a look at some of our picks below and digitally flip through for more in our e-issue.

CAMERON — SONGS OF THE WITCH WOMAN

figure within LA’s mid-century counterculture, Cameron’s work contains echoes of an important time that is also our time. A younger generation will be fascinated by her unique melding of surrealism and mysticism, and by her commitment to live her life
