“The Stars and Stripes Forever,

Right on the heels of election season, Gallery Expo is opening its new politically charged exhibit The Art Of Debate on Saturday, Nov. 17 with an artists reception from 6pm to 9pm. The exhibit will run through Friday, Dec 7.
The Art of Debate features 27 works, in an assortment of mediums, created by local artists. The artwork submitted for the show focuses on political, sexual and religious commentary.
Long Beach artist Cathy Franklin’s mixed-media collage entitled “R.I.P., Ray Bradbury & Acres of Books” tells the tale of the author’s battle to keep the store open. David McKeag’s acrylic work “The Stars and Stripes Forever” shows a man blindfolded by an American flag. Alejandra Vernon’s mixed-media collage of Rosa Parks is a noble tribute to the activist. Gallery Expo owner Douglas Orr’s portrait of Jesus Christ asks if the ubiquitous biblical figure was gay.
<strong>"Rosa Parks, “The exhibit is well worth the time to see it,” said co-curator David Rodriguez. “The artists have stepped out of the box for this show.”
The Art of Debate will be open to the public Fridays and Saturdays between 4pm and 8pm. Gallery Expo is located in the Expo Arts Center at 4321 Atlantic Ave. Parking is free and located on the north side of the building or on the street.
