The Classic Cars West gallery displays bi-monthly exhibits featuring local artists. Our goal is to provide an innovative forum for contemporary art, presenting work by largely unseen young artists who live in Oakland and the Bay Area, whose work has been rarely or never exhibited. Our museum-esque space has hosted all forms ranging from sculpture, to paintings, to large scale installations and performance art.

What song can you sing when you have no words? When bleary confusion melts into muddled bliss, three syllables suffice to sum up this feeling of dizzy elation: LA, LA, and LA. Teryn Brown and Sarah Bowser’s summer installation at Classic Cars West will manifest these questions and states of cheeky ataraxia in the form of 3D works, paintings and fanciful structures.
LA LA LA is two best friends joining forces with all who “pray in the church of universal harmony, who swim and sing and get drunk in the sunshine, who smell flowers and take care of animals”. LA LA LA is a manic mantra chanted with sticky fingers in both ears to forget the artificial structures that restrict life to the sterile and quantifiable.
