The Funhouse Gallery in Detroit presents an art show that’s out of this world, “Space Time Warp.” Going by the wild imaginings put on canvas and shaped into sculpture, the show might reside outside the Twilight Zone.
Like the particle-wave duality, Space Time Warp may demonstrate that one really can be in two places at one time. Those who enjoy art inspired by the imagination, it’s an interesting show. For those who enjoy art and science fiction, it’s a rare opportunity to experience both in-person and at the same moment in real-time.
The multimedia group show features works by more than 30 international, national and local artists. The Funhouse Sideshow Gallery also presents a special exhibit: the art of Richard M. Powers, one of the all time great illustrators of science fiction book covers.
The image is a detail from “A Librarian in the Forbidden Zone.” The work is 5×7 inches, oil paint on wood, created by Michael Foley (Onibatsu).
The science-fiction inspired art exhibition is on display through April 28 at the Funhouse Gallery in Detroit. The Funhouse Gallery is located at 1610 Clay Avenue, Detroit, Michigan, 48211. Founded by Detroit artist Mike Kelly, the gallery is located within the Russell Industrial Center Complex, Building-2 on the third floor.
“The Funhouse features established as well as emerging and underground artists, with an emphasis on alternative forms of art such as outsider/folk art, lowbrow/pop-surrealist, and street art,” the Funhouse Gallery website states. “You know, art that is FUN.”
The exhibition is open to the public, generally, Friday evenings 6-9 p.m., Saturdays 2-6 p.m., and by appointment. For exact hours and details, please call ( 248) 933-0558 or visit online.
