La Luz de Jesus Gallery celebrates 25-year anniversary with a monumental group show and companion book in Oct. - Nov. 2011
Billy Shire by Shawn Barber
You are invited to celebrate the 25th anniversary of
La Luz de Jesus Gallery
Billy Shire has masterminded "La Luz de Jesus 25," a monumental group show featuring more than 260 artists, each of whom have created a piece of art and written an essay about their experience with the gallery. In 25 years of groundbreaking exhibitions, this is La Luz's first retrospective survey, featuring three generations of the most important artists working today. Never before have all these artists shown together in one exhibition. The book, a companion to the show, chronicles the rich legacy of La Luz de Jesus and the thriving art movements it helped launch.
Opening events for the two-part group show "La Luz de Jesus 25"
will occur during the weekends of October 7 and November 4, 2011.
More information on this show is forthcoming
