Artist Harold Fox's  " On the Fringe of the Mundane" solo exhibition will also  be on exhibit at the gallery. It's definitely going to be a party!!!!!!!!


A Little about La Luz 
"Birthplace of Pop Surrealism"
 From their Website
La Luz de Jesus Gallery was established in 1986 as the brainchild of entrepreneur and art collector Billy Shire, considered largely responsible for fostering a new school of California art and prompting JUXTAPOZ Magazine to dub him “the Peggy Guggenheim of Lowbrow.
 Frank Forte
Showcasing mainly figurative, narrative paintings and unusual sculpture, the exhibitions are post-pop with content ranging from folk to outsider to religious to sexually deviant. The gallery’s objective is to bring underground art and counter-culture to the masses. Past shows have been groundbreaking, launching unknown artists who have since become famous, such as Manuel Ocampo, Joe Coleman, and Robert Williams.
A new exhibit opens on the first Friday of each month, with an opening reception that DETAILS Magazine calls “the biggest and best party in Los Angeles.


You can check out and PURCHASE some of Frank Forte's pieces from the Profanity Pop Exhibition and Laluzaploosa winners at this link HERE!!!
