Opening Night wine and cheese reception, Saturday March 7, 5:30-8:00
The Bahr Gallery takes a deep dive into the work of two of San Francisco’s Big Five psychedelic poster artists presenting a dual retrospective of critical early works by Wes Wilson and Victor Moscoso. The Exhibition will run from March 7 through May 30 and an Opening Reception will be held with refreshments, music and of course, the art.
Wes Wilson, considered the father of the psychedelic poster, got things started and you will see his style develop in early 1966 and mature into beautifully composed pieces surrounded by his trademark psychedelic lettering style.
Victor Moscoso, the only professionally trained of the Big Five, had to relearn everything he had ever been taught about advertising graphics to participate in the psychedelic poster revolution but once he caught on in 1967, he contributed a blizzard of eye-popping and soon to be iconic psychedelic images.
Bahr Gallery winter hours are Friday and Saturday 1-5pm but we are also open on some Sundays and other days during the week. Just e-mail email@example.com and we can set up a visit!
