 "La Luz De Jesus Gallery proudly presents our annual juried group exhibition, LALUZAPALOOZA. This gigantic, no-theme show features works from some of the freshest and most relevant artists working today. Again we sorted through tens of thousands of submissions from commercial illustrators, graphic designers, tattooists, scenics, students, street taggers, animators and working gallery artists.  How many will we show this year? There are  140+ pieces from 70 or so artists, continuing the tradition of the most exclusive selection of tastefully, jam-packed, salon-style exhibited works in Post-Pop. There are some familiar names from our ever-growing roster of feature artists, alongside a promising batch of previously undiscovered, emerging talent."

Reception: Fri. February 1, 8-11 PM




"Charcuterie and Cheese Group Exhibition  La Luz De Jesus Gallery is pleased to present Charcuterie and Cheez, a group exhibition featuring the work of Ashley Bevington, Michelle Bickford, Don Pablo Pedro, and Ian Ferguson. In this exhibition, each artist appropriates a definitive language of style derived from their own life experiences. The broad spectrum of technique displayed collectively creates an integral can’t-have-one-without-the-other effect; It’s pretty much nuts, cheese, the ham, and the jam."

"Intergalactic Passport"- a glimpse into the future
"If you often pause to wonder what the future might hold for us, then this collection from Michelle Bickford presents some possibilities. By being exposed to the marvels of space-age engineering and Mid-Century Modern architecture, Michelle’s art conjures up images of a bygone era that never fully came to fruition. From paint to frame, Michelle tells a story that comes from the heart. No matter how large or small, each piece is meticulously crafted to further tell her tale."

"Having grown up with science fiction as bedtime stories, I pull from the thrilling sense of surprise and create worlds of my very own. I want to take the viewer on a journey of the unexpected. Each piece could be it's own cover of the story waiting to be revealed within."

21st Anniversary Art of Tiki Show
Exhibition: Oct 6-29
Book release & signing party
Friday, October 6, 8-11 PM

With Otto Von Stroheim, Sven Kirsten
& over 30 of Today’s Top Tiki Artists

"The Art of Tiki is a passionate study of the Tiki idol as an art form. For the first time, contemporary Tiki art is united and presented equally with what inspired it, original mid-century Polynesian pop. Author Sven Kirsten combines his first-hand experiences in exploring the birth of Tiki style with his intimate knowledge of the Tiki Revival, painting a vivid, visually arresting portrait of a unique, always new art genre."
