IT’S NOT MY FAULT: THE ART OF EVERETT PECK
Native son of Oceanside and Emmy Award-nominated artist Everett Peck unveils his never-before-seen abstract paintings in this comprehensive exhibition of his career. Although most well-known for his television series Duckman (1994-1997, USA Network), Everett Peck is a multifaceted artist: an animator, a cartoonist, an illustrator, and a painter. It’s Not My Fault showcases Peck’s work over the past thirty years and traces his evolution as an artist from his early concept sketches to his recent large-scale paintings, which explore the pop culture of modern America and its intersection with everyday life.Also on display will be illustrations, sketch books and preliminary and concept drawings from Peck’s extensive animation work. Regardless of the medium, Peck uses his unmistakable illustrative style to humorously point out the quirks and eccentricities of our time.
