The Boys (and Girls) of Summer

Here's a little taste of what the next few months will be bringing. Our summer-into-fall schedule is amazing! With solo shows from Brad "Tiki Shark" Parker and Miles Thompson in July, José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros in August, and then Negativland in a three-way with our posthumous Neon Park and Chick Strand retrospectives in September, this summer at La Luz de Jesus will be like taking a very thorough survey course in Pop Surrealism history. It seems like every aspect of the movement is represented, from old school lowbrow to serious social commentary. Filling the back gallery in August will be the eight Laluzapalooza Jury Winners, who (between them) work in just about every medium imaginable. The images below will be appearing in volume 24 of Hi-Fructose Magazine, which should be hitting newsstands in the first week of July.


I've updated a few things on the calendar page as well, listing the line-up for the October Macabre Show, and adding preview page links to several of the shows listed above and below, and check out our events page, too. There's a killer Sunset Strip photography show happening in the last week of June for John Scarpati's Cramp, Slash & Burn –recalling the days when punk and glam were twins.

Also fully accessible are all three of the June shows:
Dave Lebow's End Time Visions preview page includes a tell-tale image that should clue-in most folks to the origin of the Doomsday paintings in his very first solo exhibition.

Germs' incredible La Luz de Jesus debut, Fasho, is now completely previewable and Jason D'Aquino's Phillumeny is mostly posted.   

Feel free to contact me for purchase info or to get listed for presales.

Director, La Luz de Jesus Gallery
