Strange Imaginations and Other Perplexing Wonders

From the creators who brought you “Robots, Rockets and Space Vixens”, “Cheesecake Anyone?”, “Cheesecake Seconds Please! A Salute to the American Pin-up!” and “Fez Fest” comes: Strange Imaginations and Other Perplexing Wonders

The Summer 2018 Oddball Art Labs group show was probably the most open ended theme for a gallery show we’ve ever arranged. The basic theme was Lowbrow Art. (Also called Pop-Art Surealism)

We debuted the ‘Art-O-Facts Art Dispensary’ at the show. It is a restored and redesigned 1950’s cigarette vending machine that will now be used to sell cigarette sized pieces of art. We plan to have it placed at changing locations throughout Elgin.

The Artist’s opening reception was on July 13, 2018 from 6pm-10pm. It all happened at the ArtSpace Gallery, 51 S Spring St, Elgin, Illinois 60120.
