May 1-4 2008:
An invitation to an awards ceremony in Las Angeles is hard to pass up, especially when in support of Durango's very own one-of-a-kind black and white magazine, Arts Perspective. Therefore Kyla took the invite to the Maggies as an opportunity to spend quality time with the dearly loved director, Heather Leavitt and editor, Sonja Horoshko. The girls obviously enjoyed their time mingling with artists, art collectors, gallery owners, and Kyla and Wesley's photogenic cousins.

Below: Shane Guffogg, Pharmaka's founder and president. Shane opened this not-for-profit gallery in one of the worst drug traffic corners in downtown L.A. Of course you would never know it walking into Pharmaka's space of light, energy and art. Shane hopes to bring more artists to his part of town and is currently working to create spaces to rent where artists can afford to do their art.
