June 2013 brings three new exhibits to the Stranger Factory gallery by artists Valency Genis, Bob Dob, and Tim Lee. All three exhibits run June 7th – 30th, with an opening reception on Friday, June 7th from 6 – 9 PM.
Bob Dob presents “Ride“, a new body of work highlighting his trademark character style. Dob’s work elaborates on all the angst and impishness of youth, filtered through California punk-rock culture. His characters are permanent children, shrugging their way through the tales we tell long after we have children and settle in to adulthood.
Valency Genis‘ new exhibit, “Fauna“, brings us back to her whimsical and bizarre taxidermy of the animals we can only imagine. Her creations bring us all the familiar comforts of nature, filtered through the glorious weirdness of cryptozoology. But instead of giving us something as obvious as a Jersey Devil or Sasquatch, Valency gives us the creatures that live in the forest around them.
The Stranger Factory Project Room will feature “Done Gone“, an exhibit by recovering illustrator, Tim Lee. Tim’s work combines music, Americana, pop-culture and bits of Southern Gothic, stirred together in nostalgic worlds and imagined time. With elements of cubism mixed with an Eastern European folktale feel, “Done Gone” has a unique style and flavor.
