Preview: “Laluzapalooza” Juried Group Show at La Luz de Jesus

Though they have been in business since the '80s, La Luz de Jesus has maintained a steadfast focus on emerging talent among their roster of established artists. Their annual juried group show, "Laluzapalooza 2014" seeks to breathe fresh air into the LA art scene with around 100 artworks selected from over 16,000 submissions. Heavily dosed with kitsch and pop culture, this exhibition features artwork in a variety of media, from Christopher Ulrich's off-kilter paintings of mythological scenes to Frank Forte's nightmarish cartoons and Peter Adamyan's irreverent, satirical wood-relief paintings. With the exception of a few, most of the artists in the show have seldom been heard on the lips of LA gallery goers. The exhibition promises a platform for these creative voices. "Laluzapalooza" opens March 7 and will be on view through March 30.
