This fall, Creativity Explored, San Francisco's premiere gallery of artwork by artists with developmental disabilities, will be rocking the Mission District with a lollapalooza of an exhibition entitled "The Beat Goes On" that pays tribute to music and some of its most famous idols.
From a watercolor of Led Zepplin by Walter Kresnik to a detailed sketch of a souvenir Elvis ID from Graceland by Jimmy Miles to a ukelele covered with the names of pop stars in the distinct handwriting of John Patrick McKenzie, portraits of the legends of contemporary music are a major feature of the exhibition. Other work includes several bold, multi-colored and almost cubist guitar sculptures by Vincent Jackson and a series of Dr. Seuss-like horns painted on wood by Melody Lima.
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 5, 2006 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Exhibit Dates & Times: October 5-November 22, 2006, Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday 1 to 6 p.m.
