Popular images like Uncle Sam (with his bushy eyebrows and emphatic index finger) or the desperate cockroach screaming Raid?! have been burned into our collective American psyche. Its funny to think that these images as well as album and book covers, comics, postage stamps, and billboards were once drawn or painted long before computer graphics by old-timey Norman Rockwell-types.
A new show at Artspace on Sixth illustrates as much. Local artist Bob Price, in all of his tattoo-like surrealism and Gilead, who is painting 1,000 works this year, are among the far-out talent in this exhibit.
