Lowbrow Art gallery talk with co-curators Jerry Waddles and Michael C. Gross
Jerry Waddle and Michael C. Gross, co-curators of LOWBROW ART: Nine San Diego Pop Surrealists, will talk about Lowbrow Art and the artists in the exhibition on Thursday, February 26th from 7:00-9:00. Jerry is the owner of Ducky Waddles Emporium, a book store, art gallery and center for cultural studies in Encinitas. Michael C. Gross is an art director, illustrator, photographer, film producer, director and painter and has been working with the OMA exhibition department for years. You have probably seen one of the many movies Gross has produced such as Ghostbusters and Schwarzenegger's famous movies Twins and Kindergarten Cop. Waddle and Gross make a great team of first-hand Lowbrow experts, actually living through the genesis of this movement that began in the '60s with girlie pinup art and gig posters. The talk is free for OMA members as a benefit of membership and $5 for nonmembers.
