The Shooting Gallery is pleased to present I <3 LV, a group show inspired by one of our favorite luxury brands and its rich artistic history, featuring work by Greg Gossel, Apex, Ferris Plock, Word to Mother, Helen Bayly, Lauren Napolitano, Chad Hasegawa, Casey Gray, Charmaine Olivia, Nick Flatt, Benjamin Clarke and Niels Shoe Meulman. I <3 LV will showcase a new take on the designs that have come to signify classic style by artists known for pushing the boundaries of contemporary art.
The opening reception will be held at the Shooting Gallery on July 6, 2013 from 7-11pm. The exhibition will be on view through August 10, 2013 and is free and open to the public.
The Shooting Gallery opened its doors in 2003 to the edgy Tenderloin district of San Francisco; one known for its diverse culture and history. Owner and curator, Justin Giarla, founded the space to offer a welcoming environment for viewing the art he loves. Giarla has long since recognized the necessity to provide lowbrow artists with a platform, which is exactly what the Shooting Gallery has done for a full decade. In addition to the exhibition of leading shows in pop art, street art, and outsider art, the Shooting Gallery also participates in art fairs around the world and hosts annual fundraisers for local nonprofits.
