La Luz de Jesus Gallery Juried Group Show Artist List and Preview

La Luz de Jesus’ 2013 Laluzapalooza / Kitschen Sync Juried Group Show Includes Art by The Creepy Creeps / Creepxotica’s Dave Warshaw!


Laluzapalooza-PC-fAfter publicly extending their annual Laluzapalooza juried group show submission deadline an extra month, La Luz de Jesus Gallery‘s Billy Shire and Matt Kennedy sorted through over 15,000 images to select over 220 paintings, drawings, sculptures, assemblages, and photographs to be included in their biggest show of the year.

Laluzapalooza patrons will see a noticeable difference in the tone of the show, reflecting a shift toward labor-intensive work of all mediums. Along with work from animators, tattooists, graphic designers, and commercial illustrators, La Luz de Jesus is incorporating photography and digital art into the show. Shire and Kennedy didn’t set out to change the show’s parameters, but several submitted pieces fit the format so perfectly, the duo decided to accept the works and expand the show. They are both confident that there is a “WOW!” factor in this year’s Laluzapalooza which you won’t see in any other group show.

2013′s Laluzapalooza showcases artists from six continents: North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Australia, and Europe
