Opening Reception: August 1, 2018 from 7:00 – 9:00pm Throughout its remarkable 50-year span, Lee Conklin’s career has been well regarded as an essential contribution to the psychedelic poster art movement. Well known for imaginative vision and inventive lettering, this work demands and rewards prolonged, patient exploration. These posters often offer voyages—visual trips—containing hidden messages, elements and value that reveal gradually and perhaps unintentionally. According to Conklin, “I just start drawing … and sometimes it turns into something.”
