It really does seem like only yesterday that ripping surfer chick and art connoisseur MARSEA GOLDBERG opened the doors to her NEW IMAGE ART GALLERY. In that time the West Hollywood hotspot has been a home (oftentimes literally) to a vast array of the underground art world's young upstarts and a proven incubator for talent that has nurtured the careers of Ed Templeton, Clare Rojas, Jo Jackson, Judith Supine, Tauba Auerbach, Matt Leines, Jeff Soto, Taylor McKimens, Chris Johanson, Phil Frost, Jordin Isip, The Date Farmers, David Ellis, Barry McGee, Ashley Macomber, Os Gemeos, Neck Face and Thomas Campbell, to name a few, all of whom are among the contributors to "15 Years," the space's impressive celebratory group show that opened on Saturday nite. Of course, LA's hipster elite turned out in full force to help mark the occasion, bolstered no doubt by a special live performance by rippers NO AGE and an endless supply of free booze.
