Here's a sneak peak at Amy Crehore's hand painted ukuleles, which will be on display at her upcoming "Dreamgirls and Ukes" exhibition.
Paintings and ukes for my show at Thinkspace gallery, Los Angeles (Feb 13-March 6).The paintings just need to be framed and the ukes are 90% done in these photos. These hand-painted, restored, antique ukes will all be set up by a luthier, but they are also fine art objects that will hang in the gallery setting next to the paintings. Most are from the 1920's and 30's, so they are pretty rare.
