We're turning the Gallery into a Sketch Theater!

This Thursday (August 11) from 6-9 PM, La Luz de Jesus Gallery will be hosting a special book signing event for SKETCH THEATER Volume 1. This fabulous collection of quick draw artistry is something of a who's who at the crossroads of commercial illustration and gallery exhibition. You'll recognize more than a few La Luz alumni, many of whom will be here in person to sign your books (which will be in stock and available for purchase).

A full list is below, with confirmed attendees marked with an asterix*:

This will give you a good excuse to pop in and see the exhibition that yielded the highest attendance record of any gallery opening this season. Lou Beach, Sam Lubicz & Alpha Lubicz turned in the quintessential collection of collage art in Gallery I. And in Gallery II, there seems to be a race to see whose work will sell out first! Miso has already sold ten of her eleven exquisite mini paintings; rabid collectors snatched up twelve of Rodolfo Loaiza's sixteen, socially-critical dissections of pop-culture iconography; eleven of fourteen pieces from Jasmine Worth have red dots on the labels; and Click Mort and Jessicka Addams are each halfway to gone (he having sold nine of his eighteen, she seven of fourteen). Not far away are Walt Hall and Derek Harrison who each turned in magnificent portfolios.
