Art Show, Museum, Painting
"Mark Bryan: Fake News"
This exhibition features the Central Coast artist Mar Bryan’s well-known political satire and pop-surrealism paintings. Raised during the turmoil of the 1950s and 60s, Bryan is notably influenced by the pop-culture and political dissent that defined those decades. The influences of cheesy Sci-Fi and horror movies, comic books, and Salvador Dalí are informed by his coming-of-age experiences during the violence of the Vietnam War, the Red Scare, and the Civil Rights Movement. On view through April 26.
