This sounds interesting. On April 16, Aldis Browne Fine Arts, Inc. in La Jolla, California will introduce Avant Nez, a project by conceptual artist Brian Goeltzenleuchter. His previous forays into olfactory art involved creating scents for institutional spaces. In the new project his focus is on individuals:
In this, his inaugural dialogue with individual patrons, Goeltzenleuchter has developed an artistic process entailing three pre-arranged sittings to define the context for an evocative and intense journey into the creation of a client's personal fragrance, bottled within a sculpture designed by the artist.If you are in the vicinity, try to wangle an invite and let me know what you think of his work. (How many Californians does it take to attend a gallery opening? Twenty: one to go and nineteen to share the experience.)
And while you are in La Jolla, stroll a couple of blocks over to Pannikin Coffee & Tea. Had brunch there last fall and it was most enjoyable. I’m not the only one who thinks so.
