Seattle gallery opens 'Rayguns and Robots!' art exhibition
Wired has a gallery of twenty works in a Seattle art exhibition open June 16–July 22, “Rayguns and Robots!” (with an exhibition poster partially inspired by Planet of the Apes), at James Monosmith’s Ltd. Art Gallery.
The exhibit, curated by Chris Jackson, consists of over seventy pieces by forty-one artists, “dedicated to art influenced by the sci-fi stylings of the 1940s and 1950s.”
Most of the paintings, sculptures, and vinyl toys are not anthropomorphic, but check out Mikeatron!’s painting of a Godzilla-like monster skipping rope in the radioactive ruins of Tokyo, Chet Phillips’ “MST3k Attacks”, “They Came From Beyond Space” by Ken Keirns, “Back to the River, Back to the Forest” by Patrick Maxcy, and “Captain Qwendolth Blazar and the Thing From Beyond” by Tyler Parker.
Ltd. Art Gallery is at 307 East Pike Street, Seattle, WA 98122, open Tuesdays through Sundays, 11 a.m.–7 p.m.; (206) 457-2970. I can’t get there from Los Angeles, but this looks like it is worth a visit to any Seattle-area Flayrah readers. Don’t miss the Ltd. Art Gallery’s online gallery of other exhibits, including “Disney Underground” (heavy on pop-art interpretations of Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and others), “Fox”, and more.
