Opening December 5th, 2013 at Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, CA is “New Neon: Light, Paint & Photography,” a group exhibition including 30 local, national, and international artists who offer varied interpretations of neon. Several artists in this exhibition respond to neon’s roots as a minimal, yet direct form of communication used in advertising billboards and signage. Some artists in the exhibit play with the speed and clarity with which a neon sign delivers information by displaying an ambiguous message, while other artists use neon as a way to disrupt older artistic traditions, re-imaging vintage subject matter in the bright colors of our contemporary surroundings. “New Neon: Light, Paint & Photography” is curated by Carrie Lederer.
Opening Reception: December 5th, 2013. 6-8pm
