Taos gallery owner Greg Moon has looked upon the New Mexico art landscape and found something missing. "There are so many artists who deserve exposure," he said. The artists he is talking about are those who fall loosely into the category of "lowbrow" - painters, sculptors and multimedia creatives who simply don't fit into the easy-to-categorize subject areas.
To see what he means, it's probably best to check out his seventh annual New Mexico-Low Invitational titled The "Lowbrow Lexicon," which opens with a reception Saturday (Aug. 17) from 5-8 p.m. at Greg Moon Art, 109A Kit Carson Road, Taos.
This year's lineup features artists from New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Texas and California. At Moon's gallery you'll see works in the pop-surrealism and lowbrow genres. Invited lunatics include Dennis Larkins, Joel Nakamura, Larry McEntire, Esteban Bojorquez, Tony Ortega, Heather Ross, Harold Romero, Lori Herbst, Jeff Brock, Rik Farley, Sam Yeates, Marvin Moon and Greg Moon himself.
Moon said each invitational is a chance to change up his usual offerings. "I like to alternate new people to give them exposure," he said. "It helps to revive interest in some underseen areas."
The exhibit runs through September. For more information, call (575) 770-4463. To preview the show, visit gregmoonart.com.
