Gallery 1988 Los Angeles with Alex Pardee's Hiding From The NormalsGallery1988: Los Angeles is proud to announce what will undoubtedly be one of the gallery’s most extensive and elaborate exhibits in its history. Bay Area artist Alex Pardee will display a group of new works that he calls his “largest and most intense body of work to date” in “Hiding From The Normals,” which will open with a reception on October 6th, from 7-10 PM. Pardee, who will be in attendance that night, has created a Halloween universe all his own with paintings, prints, t-shirts and an installation that just might scare you. There will even be a Halloween COSTUME CONTEST, where Alex will pick a winner and give out a special treat! On October 6th, we will also be celebrating the highly anticipated DVD/Blu-Ray Release of “Trick R Treat,” a film by Michael Dougherty, which will include a special limited edition “Trick R Treat” t-shirt by Alex Pardee, a screening of the film in our parking lot and the filmmakers signing the movie! We promise this will be one art show you have to see to believe, as Alex has even created his own horror story to tie these new characters together. This show will run until October 29th.
