Around 300 art-lovers showed up Saturday at RedLine Gallery for a second anniversary bash on the theme of "This is Where We Live." Other than fundraising, the event's purpose was to provide an active interface between artists and the public; to that end, there were interactive installations by Jay Dion, Viviane Le Courtois, Gretchen Schaefer and the L.A. collective Fallen Fruit and plenty of opportunities to rub elbows with the artists. Here's to a third year of the same: Cheers! The following images were taken by photographer Steve Crecelius. Next up at RedLine: Cross Ties Across Time, an annual showcase of resident artists, including five newcomers. Cross Ties opens Friday.
