Synchronicity Space To Move Into The Hel-Mel ‘Shack’

Just heard from an anonymous reputable source today (okay, it was Tai Kim, owner of Scoops) that the Synchronicity Space art gallery will be moving into the small stand-alone storefront “shack” at 713 N. Heliotrope Drive currently operated by The Fixx Carlton, a business that specializes in building custom fixed-gear bicycle frames. Synchronicity had been operating out of the storefront at 4306 Melrose Avenue since 2008, but recently closed, presumably due to high rent. Apparently The Fixx Carlton hasn’t been doing that well, and Kim also said he’s heard of problems with the Environmental Protection Agency reportedly getting on their case over the improper disposal of toxic chemicals. Yikes!

The shack was previously the original home of Orange 20 Bikes before it grew and moved two doors down to its current digs at 4351 Melrose. Back in the 1980s it was also the original home of the eclectic Y-Que Trading Post t-shirt/novelty shop before it moved north to Los Feliz Village.

Nice to know Synchronicity remains dedicated to staying in East Hollywood/Hel-Mel; Owner Katie Vonderheide has been a big supporter of the neighborhood through her involvement with the EHNC, its Arts and Culture committee and the East Hollywood ArtCycle.
