DESCRIPTION

HISTORY:

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."


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 OcampoJoe 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."
