New Date: Thursday Reception In Art Space says
Please note a date change for the upcoming First Thursday. We will hold our exhibit opening reception on Thursday, July 9th!

This date change is due to a gallery maintenance.

What is Pop Art? We'll take our cue from the MOMA:

"It was in this climate of turbulence, experimentation, and consumerism that a new generation of artists....Pop artists began to look for inspiration in the world around them, representing—and, at times, making art directly from—everyday items, consumer goods, and mass media. They did this in a straightforward manner, using bold swaths of primary colors, often straight from the can or tube of paint. They adopted commercial methods like silkscreening, or produced multiples of works, downplaying the artist’s hand and subverting the idea of originality—in marked contrast with the highly expressive, large-scaled abstract works of the Abstract Expressionists, whose work had dominated postwar American art. Pop artists favored realism, everyday (and even mundane) imagery, and heavy doses of irony and wit."
