For the fourth year in a row, Los Angeles based Gallery 1988 will host “Crazy 4 Cult,” an exhibition of 100 artists displaying their interpretations of notorious films and their characters. A favorite show in the film capital of the world, some of the artists include Allison Sommers, Rich Pellegrino, and Glen Brogan putting their own creative aesthetic onto Hollywood movie magic. Film art is steadily showing to be a popular asset made evident by the sale of Ron English’s Large Marilyn Red Peach at Phillips de Pury’s artful film auction, which sold for double the estimate at over $30,000.
“Crazy 4 Cult” runs from July 9-30. The opening reception takes place July 9 from 7-10pm featuring hosts Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier, New Jersey’s own cult filmmakers who directed some of my favorite indie comedies including Clerks, Dogma, and Jay and Silent Bob. Fun Fact: I actually live a few minutes from The Quick Stop. Shout out to Leonardo.
