A group show running at Arch Enemy Arts highlights artists either inspired by or directly working in collage. Running until Aug. 25, “Mélange” brings a diverse array of creators to the Philadelphia space. The show features Alex Eckman-Lawn, Angela Rio, David Krovblit, Dewey Saunders, Eduardo Recife, Jake Messing, John Vochatzer, Moon_Patrol, Pierre Schmidt, Vahge, and Visual Stones.
In the new group show at Creatura House, 10 artists interpret a theme of “Aquamarine” as they see fit. The works from John Brophy, Brian Despain, Jonathan Viner, Flannery Grace Good, Laurie Lee Brom, Logan Hicks, Gail Potocki, Claudia Griesbach-Martucci, Madeline Von Foerster, and Scott Musgrove moves between reflections of the natural world and the mystical.
Coming in October: “Hi-Fructose Presents: The Art of The Mushroom,” an exploration into artists’ interpretations of the friendly, deadly, tasty, hallucinogenic, phallic, alien, and legendary mushroom. The show is curated by Hi-Fructose, premiering at Oakland’s The Compound Gallery on October 20. (Above art by Naoto Hattori.)
The massive group show Laluzapalooza has returned at La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. With more than 160 works from more than 60 artists, this show says it offers “the most exclusive selection of tastefully, jam-packed, salon-style exhibited works in Post-Pop.” Jorge Dos Diablos, Dave Lebow, D.W. Marino, VegA, and Win Wallace are among the names in the line-up.

Arch Enemy Arts’ current group show, Pulp 2, is the gallery’s annual works on paper affair, with this crop including Matt Gordon, Kit Mizeres, Caitlin McCormack, Thomas Ascott, and several others. The Philadelphia spot hosts the show through Jan. 30. This is the second installment of Pulp, which debuted last year.
The 31st annual group show at La Luz De Jesus Gallery, titled Laluzapalooza 2017, brings 130 pieces from 64 artists into the space. There’s no theme to the enormous salon-style show, just a broad Post-Pop experience. The gallery says it sorted through thousands of submissions from “commercial illustrators, graphic designers, tattooists, scenics, students, street taggers, animators, and working gallery artists” to get to the final line-up.
