Free Art exhibit showcases the whimsical and humorous take on America's pop culture icons.
RENO NEVADA – AUGUST 6, 2010 – Local artist, land architect and designer Kevin McCall will hold a special 2-day art installation, August 19th and 20th in the brand new East of West Art Gallery. During the last 12 months McCall has created 33 unique and eclectic pieces of work that will be showcased during this symbolic exhibit. The exhibit is free to the public and will offer light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the artist.
Kevin McCall, a Kansas City native moved from the New York City area via 8 years in San Fransisco 18 years ago to live, work and play in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area. The installation will express the symbolic side of America's pop culture. “My body of work is on the larger size, with strong geometry, symbolism, color and usually humor; each piece tells a short story.” McCall says.
This brightly colored and intriguing exhibit will feature images from the Post-World War II American culture. You'll be surprised and intrigued by his whimsical and humorous take on America's symbols and icons of pop culture,” states Marilyn Strauss, owner of the Sulgrave in Kansas City. You will be inspired by the nostalgic images of Olive Oyl, Walt Cronkite, Tom Hanks and much more. “Usually each piece takes more than 10 seconds to really “get it”', because most pieces have multiple images within them. Smiles and laughing is a common reaction”, says McCall.
The event will be featured at the new East of West Art Gallery, located in the West Street Market at 148 West Street Reno, NV. Thursday August 19th and Friday August 20th from 5pm-9pm.
