Optic Response - Flashbacks: Summer of Love 50 Years On
August 4 - September 4, 2017

Optic Response_ Summer Of Love

A pop up exhibition comprised of paintings from the 1960s and contemporary artworks that are highly retinal, inducing flashbacks and memories of the Summer of Love

Through September 2, 2017 Opening reception: Saturday, August 5 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM

Optic Response focuses on artworks that stimulate the eye, produce illusions and challenge visual perception.

Challenging visual perception was an important part of the 1960s and the psychedelic experience. The illusory effects were, and still are, created by taking advantage of meticulously executed combinations of the vibrational pairings of colors, fluorescent paint, use of line variations, geometric shapes and repeating patterns. 

Contemporary artists continue to explore visual perception by using many of the same formal properties as in the 1960s combined with new technologies and materials.

Flashbacks: Summer of Love 50 Years On is a short series of pop up exhibitions that will continue through the rest of summer 2017.

Many of the gallery artists were founders of and early practitioners of Op Art and exploring visual perception. Several of the gallery’s established and emerging artists continue to explore this practice with the use of acrylic plastic, three-dimensional shapes, interference paint and digital productions.
