Obscuro Bezango! Opening Reception

Future Tenant presents Obscuro Bezango!, a body of work by three creators in a little known arena of art called Obscuro Culture. This four-week visual arts exhibit curated by Thomas Rehm will feature traditional sculpture, outsider sculpture, and Obscuro art and comics all unified by their singularity of vision.

Meet the curator and enjoy live music by the duo Pairdown at the opening reception Friday, August 2 from 7-10PM. Admission is FREE and open to the public. Complimentary drinks will be served thanks to our generous sponsors Straub Beer, Jack's Hard Cider, and Johnnie Ryan Soda.

Steve Londy Willis, renowned Obscuro cartoonist, will be the guest of honor for the evening to open the show. Willis is perhaps one of the most loved and respected cartoonists in the underground comics scene. His work, most especially his comic character, Morty Dog, surpasses in quality and creativity most of the mainstream comics that receive syndication.

In addition to curating the show, Thomas Rehm will display work alongside Maximum Traffic- the assumed name of a prolific artist- and Elmore “Buzz” Buzzizyk. These three unlikely gallery-mates help carry on the underground culture of self published artists and cartoonists that arose in the advent of widely available, inexpensive photocopying, today known as Obscuro art.

Obscuro Bezango! will be on display from August 2 to September 1, 2013, with gallery hours open and free to the public every Thursday and Sunday from 1 to 6pm and Friday and Saturday from 1 to 8pm.

    An interesting show, well worth seeing. I got there at 7:45, and everyone from Meetup had come and gone, I guess. I bought one of Buzz's reed masks.

    I'm having trouble finding a decent schedule time for the bus so I will not be able to attend. Sorry...

    I may stop by to mingle a little, especially since said event is free! I don't have anything else specifically planned for Friday evening, as of yet! Julia
