The snowballing popularity of pop culture art has found a place to plant its flag in the Pacific Northwest. Los Angeles has Gallery 1988, Austin has Mondo, San Francisco has Spoke Art, New York at Bottleneck and Seattle now has the LTD Art Gallery. The gallery will celebrate its one year anniversary this weekend with the opening of Pop 2, an exhibit featuring the art of pop culture. Everything from sci-fi to comic books, television and movies are all on display created a talented group of veteran and up and coming artists. Batman, Hellboy, I Dream of Jeannie, Blade Runner, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead are some of the subjects.
The show runs from November 8 through December 9 with an opening reception happening this Thursday from 6-10 p.m. After the jump, check out a bunch of images from the exhibit and get all the details.
The LTD Art Gallery is located at 307 E. Pike St., Seattle, WA, in the heart of Capitol Hill. Go to www.ltdartgallery.com for more contact info, hours and more. Here’s just some of the art from the show (jump down for info on each piece).
I was recently in Seattle and made it a point to check out LTD in person. While still in its infancy compared to some of the other galleries around the country, it’s actually a surprisingly large, engaging and comfortable space. It has a pinball machine, small wall of older art from previous exhibits, I was very impressed with it. If you’re in the area, even if it’s not for this week’s reception, definitely check it out.
