More San Diego art shows

Good stuff on tap at San Diego Mesa College, Park Gallery and Low Gallery

By Alex Zaragoza
seen2 “And All He Saw Was the Wall” by Matthew Land can be seen in Thuppathome.

Some weeks, there are too many cool art shows for one person to cover, and instead of hiring a team of elves to churn out feature stories that would have to be translated from elvish to English, I’ll just share a few words on a handful of exhibitions that should not be missed:

Be prepared to discuss worldly topics at Poke: A Series of Provocationswhich opens with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5, at San Diego Mesa College Art Gallery (7250 Mesa College Drive in Clairemont). Husband-and-wife team Debby and Larry Kline, winners of this year’s San Diego Art Prize, will show sculptures that take on topics like religion and healthcare. They’re also known for creating cool, cheeky art while they’re out to dinner. The show runs through Sept. 26.

You say “super-awesome”; Matthew Land, Invisible God and Acamonchi say “Thuppathome.” The artists, who lean toward the lowbrow, street-art, abstract-expressionist persuasion, will display their latest collection of collaborative and solo pieces at Park Gallery (4325 Park Blvd. in University Heights) from 6 to 11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6.

Low Gallery (3778 30th St.), North Park’s newest art space, will celebrate its opening with an exhibition featuring San Diego lowbrow faves Mike Maxwell and Alli GoodWell & Good opens with a reception from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7. A new gallery and new works from Maxwell and Good? Color me excited!
