Last Week to Check Out FREE “Paranormal Hallucinations” Exhibition in Williamsburg

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Awesome art isn’t limited to the stuff you see in museums– comic books, tattoos, and graffiti can have some serious artistic cred, too.  A survey of work by all of these types of outsider artists, Paranormal Hallucinations– a current exhibit at Pandemic Gallery in Williamsburg– offers tons of visual gems in a casual, “not-your-typical-elitist-gallery” environment.  Unfortunately, the exhibit closes on January 7th, so this is your last week to check it out!

I went to the opening for this treasure trove of street art, and it felt pretty “Bay Area.”  Everyone in attendance was looking a little unwashed and bike messanger-y, and I spotted more than a few SF Giants hats.  The art on display had some major California vibes as well– from Swampy’s otherworldly graffiti, to Llewellyn Mejia’s psychedelic illustrations.  As a resident of California for the first 23 years of my life, I found this super enjoyable– like a mini vacay to the Mission or something!

Head on over to Williamsburg and check out this exhibition before it’s too late.  More information– and a preview of the work on display– can be found on the Paranormal Hallucinations tumblr.

Paranormal Hallucinations Exhibition
11am-6pm daily, until January 7th
Pandemic Gallery (37 Broadway, between Wythe and Kent)
