La Luz de Jesus founder Billy Shire as painted by Shawn Barber
As we featured in the latest volume of Hi-Fructose (on stands now, or available here,) the Los Angeles-based institution, La Luz de Jesus, opened its doors this past weekend to commence the beginnings of its twenty fifth year anniversary celebration. In an unprecedented showing, the gallery has enslisted every single artist it has ever shown for the past two and a half decades for a massive group showing so large it spans two months and is accompanied by its own book release. With over two hundred and sixty artists on view at the space the next eight weeks, we aren’t even able to get all of our favorite works fit into a single post! Get a look at the first half of our favorite pieces after the jump, and stay tuned for our continuing coverage on the show next month.
