In Kiss My Aura, his latest show at Slow Culture in Los Angeles, artist Travis Millard has taken his pancake art, covered it in resin (not syrup), and used the plate as a frame. Oh, he also made some rad drawings too.
All week we’ll be previewing cultural highlights from the upcoming fall season. Today we start with 34 can’t miss art exhibitions opening in September in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Paris.
From New York to Los Angeles and up to San Francisco, there’s a lot of art to see, and plenty of time to see it. It’s a long weekend!

For this installment of “Artist Eats,” we asked Erik Mark Sandberg to share his favorite place to eat. Erik is an artist based in Los Angeles, whose “Hairy Children” series we are particularly fond of. He is currently working on a new body of work, which will be exhibited at Segal Projects in 2015.
“One of my favorite places to venture out and grab some nourishment during downtime is The Black Cat on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, or Silver Lake to be exact. It’s in the neighborhood of the studio and has a chill tailored atmosphere for lunch or a night out. Los Angeles has a lot of unique pockets and Silver Lake richly nurtures its creative residents. This establishment is located in Sunset Junction across the street from Intelligencia coffee and Café Stella, which are both excellent refueling stops as well.

If you’re in Los Angeles on June 1st make sure you go enjoy a special pop-up brunch prepared by actual brothers Jason & Chris Stewart at the Underground Gallery. The menu includes some really interesting stuff like Spam Musubi, Crispy Lentil Hash and Fried Snapper Soft Scramble. I asked the bros a few questions about cooking together, developing a menu and opening a restaurant. They were also kind enough to share the recipe for the Stewtella & Pear Panini with whipped honey-thyme ricotta, which you can find below.

Did you guys cook a lot together growing up?
We didn’t cook together that much until high school, we were both vegan at the time, and we’d have our friends come over and cook veggie burgers and tater rots while we watched Martin Lawrence stand up DVDs.
The menu looks great. Which dish was the most difficult to develop?
Thanks! The most difficult dish to develop was probably the musubi. It’s a super simple dish but you really want to get the sushi rice just right, it takes chefs years to perfect their sushi rice, I’m still improving every time, thanks to some help from actual chefs and Japanese friends.
Should we expect to see a proper restaurant from you guys in the future?
We were originally planning on opening a proper restaurant, but since this is our first venture we wanted to pump the brakes a bit and start slow, give us a chance to make mistakes and figure out exactly what we want to do before making that huge leap.
