Lowbrow Art: Nine San Diego Pop Surrealists

Blurring the boundaries of high and low art, Oceanside Museum of Art brings the Lowbrow art of 9 San Diego artists into the museum with the upcoming exhibition LOWBROW ART: Nine San Diego Pop Surrealists.
With origins in pop culture, comics and hot rod street culture, Lowbrow Art reaches beyond the conventional art world to include a visual feast of pop surrealism created by the finest alternative culture artists from the San Diego region. Featuring local greats Mary Fleener, Scott Saw, Tim McCormick, Scrojo (Craig Haskett), Jason Sherry, Charles Glaubitz, Ron Wharton, Pamela Jaeger and Jen Trute. Each artist extols their narrative world of fantasy through a personal approach reflecting the regional underground culture. Guest curators are Jerry Waddle of Ducky Waddles Emporium and Michael C. Gross. A preview reception introduces the exhibition on Saturday, January 24th from 5:00- 7:00 p.m. Lowbrow Art will be on view through May 24, 2009.
