DESCRIPTION

In conjunction with Baby Tattooville 2008, Beyond Baby Tattooville presents artwork by over a dozen artists loosely tied together in the ambiguously-named "pop surrealism" or "lowbrow" art movement. This originally underground art movement formed in Southern California in the 70s and 80s and has roots and influences from punk music, comics such as R. Crumb, hot rod art, and various other underground subcultures, in addition to surrealism and figurative art. After being largely ignored by many traditional fine art institutions, including museums, this movement has recently been getting its due. Some of the most notable artists of this scene are a part of the show, including Glenn Barr, Dave Cooper, Bob Dob, Joe Ledbetter, Shag, Amy Sol, Michael Whelan, Tara McPherson, Lola and many more. In addition to the exhibition, the Baby Tattooville 2008 event will be held at the Mission Inn Oct 3 - 5. More information can be found online at www.babytattooville.com. A reception will be held on October 4, with many of the artists in attendance. This exhibit is a partnership between RAM and Bob Self of Baby Tattoo along with Billy Shire Fine Arts in Los Angeles.
