L'KEG Gallery is an all-ages, multimedia creative space that branches itself out as a gallery. We are located in the county of Los Angeles in Echo Park.
We are an outlet for those in search of substance and bewilderment; we encourage and support the development, exchange, and presentation of creative ideas, serving as a liaison to the local community by showcasing emerging artists and musicians, providing DIY workshops, rare and local indie film screenings, and educational outreach programs.
L'KEG supports independent entrepreneurs by distributing independent records, handmade crafts, zines, publications, and vintage clothing.
We like to keep things affordable and accessible to all audiences, so all our events are $5 dollars unless stated and all ages. We are not-for-profit and are volunteer run. There are no outside beverages (alcohol, soda) or food allowed.
L'KEG was named after a line taken for the film "Velvet Goldmine" a film directed and co-written by Todd Haynes. L.K.E.G is an abreviation of "Lipstick Kissed Elbow Glove," but easily pronounced as Le-Keg.
Blue Jungle members, Cory Myrick, Leticia-Llesmin, Nosebleed, and Shannon Paley, founded LKEG Gallery in Sept. 2007 in the hope of forming a new home for artists, free thinkers, etc. to create together and create a series of events that mean something or nothing at all, just a place they can rehearse, withdraw, and draw.
We're not only DO-IT-YOURSELF, but believers of DO-IT-TOGETHER
