NELA ART SECOND SATURDAY ART WALK is a free, festive, one-night, once-a-month multi-cultural evening that brings together community friends and art lovers in the historic, eclectic and diverse communities of Northeast Los Angeles. Over 60 galleries throughout the area participate in the 
evening. 

Bob Taylor Properties is proud to celebrate NELA's thriving art community by hosting a monthly ART and MUSIC EVENT at our office, displaying work by some of our neighborhood's most talented and creative artists.

FEBRUARY 2016 marks the one year anniversary of our participation in NELA Art Second Saturday. We plan a festive and colorful celebration with featured artists and their works from the past twelve months, including Sergio Vasquez and his images of shimmering, iridescent fantasy creatures, and thebeautiful and intricately constructed mosaic paintings of Rafael Matias. 

Artist Katherine Arion will set up her easel to create colorful pastel portraits at your request.

We also have unique wearable art pieces available for purchase: Hand painted tops, shirts and capes by Marilynn Pardee, and limited edition tee shirts printed with vintage original L A punk club graphics. 

And we are pleased to present GREAT LIVE MUSIC. Carlos Guitarlos delivers authentic Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Americana and Rockin' Roots brought forth from a lifetime of experience and hard living. 

Critic Jonny Whiteside says:  “They don’t call him Guitarlos for nothing–the cat wields his ax with flabbergasting skill, a mix of sophisticated technique and sheer musicality that allows him to employ a long-range artistic reach spanning a spectrum of impressive breadth, depth and height.

Technically, Guitarlos is unrivaled–he’s capable of playing melody, an intricate bass line and beating out hot percussion all at once, creating a full-blown sound that positively dazzles. With a bottomless repertoire that demonstrates an intimate knowledge of almost every vernacular American music form, he also delivers it in a wildly idiosyncratic fashion that is as undeniably authentic as the hard-knock life he’s led."

Cadillac Zack, of Southern California Blues Society says "Carlos Guitarlos is possibly the most prolific and soulful of American roots songwriters and performers today, if not all time."

Mike Varney, founder of Shrapnel Records Group and Blues Bureau International says "Carlos Guitarlos is one of the greatest Blues/Americana guitarists of our time and he might just be a better singer than guitar player."

Saturday, February 14, In celebration of Valentine's Day Bob Taylor Properties, Inc. will be hosting "AMORES CLANDESTINOS" An Art Exhibit in our Office Lobby 7:00PM -- 10:00pm, 5526 North Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90042.

WITH LIVE MUSIC by acclaimed Americana/Blues guitarist CARLOS GUITARLOS...

Los Angeles Times says: ". . .The technique is unmistakably sophisticated: chords and melody played simultaneously, the way Chet Atkins might have done. An old gravelly blues voice, perfectly cracked, effortlessly in tune, pours from the slumped singer. The truthfulness of the voice commands you to listen. . ."

LA Weekly says: "If you're going to name yourself Carlos Guitarlos, you'd better make sure you're a damned good guitarist. So good, in fact, that you can play anywhere, out on the streets or in a fancy concert hall, with the uncanny ability to pull from memory just about any blues-rock classic and, on top of that, play it in a style that's uniquely your own. And then, somehow, you should also be so good that you can write and sing dozens of your own originals, in all manner of genres, from bewitchingly sad ballads and deft Beatles-like pop structures to ragingly dirty blues and Latin soul. --Falling James"


Curated by Rafael Matais, "AMORES CLANDESTINOS" is a beautiful and eclectic collection of wood, bead, ceramic tile and other fine art by local and international artists Rafael Matais, Anne Marie Price, Story Drops, Robert Markey, Phillipe Vignal Mosaics (Paris), Silvia Almatesta (Argentina), Peter Tovar, Dave Matke, Leonardo Ibanez Valenzuela.
