Greg Jezewski Exhibition and the Baseball Reliquary

A Giant fan and a Dodger fan can get along

People ask me all the time “Emma, what do you do when the baseball season is over?” or “What do you now that the Dodgers are not playing?”  I tell them there is still baseball being played in the Fall League and there are baseball related events going on.  For example I went to SABR (Society for American Baseball Research) meeting on Saturday October 1st.  We had Wes Parker as our speaker.   Afterwards a new president was elected and at the end we had a baseball books auction.   

Saturday October 8, 2011, Thanks to the Baseball Reliquary, I found out about Greg Jezewski “High Ball” exhibition in Santa Monica.  Take a look at this piece.  I understand that Lasorda has not seen it

 

You see Greg is a Giant fan.  He was sporting a Seals jersey at his exhibition.   What he doesn’t know is that  God IS a Dodger fan.   Tommy always talks about the BIG Dodger in the sky.  But despise Greg being a Giant fan, he has a nice baseball-themed kinetic sculptures and multi-media paintings at the exhibition in Santa Monica at Frank Pictures Gallery at Bergamot Station, 2525 Michigan Ave., Santa Monica. 

Here is the link to the  gallery website and photos of the work in display http://frankpicturesgallery.com/artists/GregJ/gregj.html  Check it out, is on display until November 10th.    I had a wonderful time there looking at the exhibition and talking to Greg and Terry & Mary Cannon.    Terry is the Executive Director of the Baseball Reliquary.   I had so much fun talking to Terry & Mary.  
 

The next Baseball Reliquary event I am attending  is this coming Saturday October 15, 2011 at the La Pintoresca Branch library, 1355 N. Raymond ave., Pasadena.  The  “Mexican American Baseball in Los Angeles,”  book signing and film screening is taking place  from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.  The event is held in conjunction with the 13th Annual Latino Heritage parade and jamaica.  I can’t wait for the event and I can’t wait to finally meet Richard Santillan co-author of the book.   Richard and I have talked to each other on the phone and have emailed each other.   Looking forward to meeting him and his wife.    BTW, Richard is a Dodger fan and a season ticket holder.   I am also looking forward to meeting some of the players from that era like Armando Perez.   Here is a link to the event:

Jeff, Just like you guys with the Cubs! lol. Good luck! Rooting for you and Allen to duke it out in the WS.

Emma, you do keep the baseball fires burning with all your activities in the off-season. Very admirable!

Jane,
And I love to keep the fires burning! lol. I love that I can find baseball related events during the MLB offseason. Might be going to Arizona for a few Fall league games there.

Emma: God is a Dodger fan? Haha niceeee. That’s a beautiful piece! Looks like the offseason is going well so far.

Awwww, I was out of town or I definitely would have gone. I’ll have to check out their site for the next event. Another event that sounds like fun but I will probably miss, the Lake Elsinore Storm have a haunted house at their stadium this month.

Viriginia,
I know each of us think that God is fan of “OUR” teams. Let’s just say that he is a Baseball fan and he has the best team made of of all our best departed players.

Kristin,
the exhibition is on till November 10th. If you happen to be in Santa Monica, check it out. I hink next time thee is something close by baseball related, I will let you know ahead of time. You should check out the Baseball Reliquary events.

Emma, I clicked over to the gallery website – some pretty unique artwork! I found out that the French phrase under Lasorda translates to “This is not a pitcher”. I assume that references his not so stellar 6.48 career ERA? ;-)

Sue,
You got it! Greg’s humor. Yeah, those are some unique artwork by Greg.
