First Street welcomes apocalypse "mash-up" tomorrow
Claremont’s First Street Gallery presents post-aPOPalyptic, the center’s latest art exhibition opening tomorrow, Friday, July 6 at 6 p.m. The exhibit will run through August 24.
Post-aPOPalyptic is a group show featuring a mash-up of pop culture-inspired imagery and post-apocalyptic themes. It will include the work of several First Street Gallery artists and the First Street debut of Tierra de Sol artist Gustavo Cruz. Mr. Cruz's highly detailed and surreal imagery will round out the dark side of this diverse show, which ranges from fun to creepy and from topical to tragic.
Opening night, which runs from 6 to 8 p.m. will feature a live musical performance by the power energy trio Kil the Engineer. Works of art will be on display as well as for sale. Catering will be provided by Spaggi’s Restaurant. For more information call 626-5455.
