BLOW UP II
Sunday July 14 – Sunday September 15
Opening Reception: Sunday, July 14, 3 – 5 pm

In response to the popularity of our 2015 exhibition BLOW UP, Bedford Gallery is excited to present a second exhibition of inflatable art. BLOW UP II explores the imaginative ways that artists use air as a tool for creating large-scale sculpture and includes imagery that is figurative and abstract. Accessible, yet rich with meaning, these pieces use perception of space to open a dialogue about pop culture and social norms. BLOW UP II will feature large-scale artworks by a roster of internationally renowned artists not before seen at the Bedford. 

BLOW UP II will travel nationally after its debut at the Bedford Gallery.

Participating Artists: 
Chromaforms (Portola Valley, California), Sharon Engelstein (Houston, Texas), FriendsWithYou (Los Angeles, California), Joshua Harker (Dexter, Michigan), , Susan Lee-Chun (Miami, Florida), Matt Ritchie (San Francisco, California), Lizabeth Rossof(Denver, Colorado), Jen Stark (Los Angeles, California), and Max Streicher (Toronto, Canada).

Admission:  Adults $5, Youth (13-17) $3, Children 12 and under are free, free for Bedford Gallery Members
Gallery Hours: Tue – Sun, 12:00 – 5:00pm
