Don Fritz - "Lexicon" Exhibition

March 26 - May 1, 2022

Professor Don Fritz will be exhibiting new ceramics and drawings at the La luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, in an exhibition titled “Lexicon”, March 26 through May 1, 2022.

Established in 1986 La Luz de Jesus Gallery is the brainchild of entrepreneur and art collector Billy Shire, considered primarily responsible for fostering a new school of California art and prompting JUXTAPOZ Magazine to dub him “the Peggy Guggenheim of Lowbrow.”

Showcasing mainly figurative, narrative paintings and unusual sculpture, the exhibitions are post-pop with content ranging from folk to outsider to religious to sexually deviant. The gallery’s objective is to bring underground art and counter-culture to the masses. Past shows have been groundbreaking, exhibiting artists, such as Manuel Ocampo, Joe Coleman, and Robert Williams.
