John Waguespack solo exhibition at The McLoughlin Gallery examines current events and pop culture through an abstract, surreal lens

The McLoughlin GallerySAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (CitizenWire) — John Waguespack, is showcasing his latest exhibit at The McLoughlin Gallery in San Francisco December 3-31, 2010. “RECONSTRUCTION” will be his first solo exhibition and will take place at The McLoughlin Gallery at 49 Geary Street in San Francisco, located just off of Union Square.

John Waguespack’s work emerged onto the San Francisco art scene in 2005 and focuses on several mediums including oil, acrylic, ink, multimedia and industrial design. His inspiration is drawn from current events and pop culture.

“This collection is a reflection of my personal life experience but I think that this body of work offers something for everyone. I encourage those interested in current events and pop culture to come out and add their own interpretation and recollection to the process,” said John Waguespack.

A meet and greet with the artist and opening reception will take place on Friday December 3, 5:30-7:30 p.m. and the exhibition will remain on display until December 31, 2010.

“John’s work is complex and thought provoking, enabling the viewer to engage with his paintings. I’m excited to assist in launching John’s career at this his first solo exhibition. It is a major milestone for both of us,” said Joan McLoughlin, Gallerist of The McLoughlin Gallery.
