Gallery1988 (Melrose) is proud to announce its upcoming show to kick off September, a month both gallery locations will celebrate as “Childhood Items We Miss The Most Month.”

Opening Friday September 2nd, come see the results when over 100 of your favorite artists were asked to create their own Garbage Pail Kids, and some may even become actual cards themselves!

Produced with our friends at Topps and The Hundreds, this show will be of epic proportions. Stay tuned for more information about the show, as well as a screening of the cinematic gem, “Garbage Pail Kids,” with our pals at Cinefamily (The Silent Movie Theater) that you can attend!”

“But before G1988 celebrates “Childhood Items We Miss The Most Month,” we’ll open “Same Gang,” compartmentalizing pop culture iconography with painter Nathan Stapley. One of the galleries’ favorite artists, Nathan has created an incredible new group of paintings already getting attention on websites like SlashFilm. This will be a pop culture extravaganza that will not let you down!

“Same Gang” opens August 26th with an opening reception from 7-10 PM at G1988 (Venice). This show will run through September 10th.”
