This week might have started with the Super Bowl, but it’s ending with a weekend of super art. Five art shows in four major cities open tonight and tomorrow. If you’re a fan of pop culture art, this is like Christmas. Here’s the breakdown.
- Thursday February 6: UnReal Estates III by Tim Doyle at Spoke Art in San Francisco, CA.
- Friday February 7: It Came From 1984 group show at Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
- Friday February 7: The Art of Laurent Durieux at Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX.
- Friday February 7: Such Pixels by Aled Lewis at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles, CA.
- Friday February 7: Adventure Show by Nicole Gustafsson & Meghan Stratman at Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles, CA.
We’ve already written about each of those shows at those above links but, below, we’ll once again give you the info and feature a few new pieces from each show.
We’ll do this in date order. Tonight opens Tim Doyle‘s UnReal Estate III, from 6-10 p.m. at Spoke Art, 816 Sutter St., San Francisco, CA. It’ll remain on display through February 22. Get more info at www.spoke-art.com. We’ve already covered a bunch of art in the show, but here are a few more, both from Breaking Bad.
Next up, It Came From 1984, curated by Chogrin, opens from 7 p.m. February 7 at the Bottleneck Gallery, 60 Broadway, Brooklyn, New York. Get specifics at www.bottleneckgallery.com. We wrote about the opening here, but these are a few additional pieces.
Moving across the time zones, artist Laurent Durieux has his first solo show at 7 p.m. February 7 at the Mondo Gallery, 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX. The exhibit remains on display through March 1. We posted a few posters here, debuted an awesome one here, and now these are a few more – including the gorgeous first Back to the Future.
Finally, Such Pixels by Aled Lewis opens from 7-10 p.m. February 7 at Gallery 1988 West, 7308 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA. It’ll remain on display through March 1. Visit www.gallery1988.com for more info. I posted about a bunch of images here but two more have eeen revealed. One is just a small sliver of a piece (from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia), and the other would make our resident podcaster happy.
As I live in Los Angeles, I can only be at the last show, but I hope you trek out to the one closest to you. They should all be a ton of fun.
UPDATE: I realized I missed a show, so I’m adding it. Here goes.
The Adventure Show by Nicole Gustafsson & Meghan Stratman open at 7 p.m. Friday February 7 at the Hero Complex Gallery, 2020 South Robertson Blvd., Studio D in Los Angeles, CA. I haven’t covered it yet and only know a little about the artists, but found a few small previews that look pretty awesome. Find out more about the show here.
