Black Friday bursts with color at the Popocalypse art exhibition at Toma Gallery – 71Bait

Black Friday will burst with color when the Popocalypse pop art show takes over Toma Gallery and Studios this weekend.

Artists featured include Chuco Chamuco, Juan Ornelas, Blanca Estrada, Illaramendi Graphic Arts, Carolina “Kako” Villarreal, Santiago Covarrubias, Jose Reyes, Dead Punk, Cushi Cushi 915, Steve Salazar and Jimmy Alonzo.

"death reigns" by Juan Ornelas, will be performed at the Popocalypse Pop Art Group Show at Toma Gallery and Studios, 210 Poplar St.

The organizers saw opportunities in the time and place.

“Colleague artist and friend Gabriel C. Rodriguez, aka Chuco Chamuco, came up with the idea of ​​hosting a pop-art themed event featuring local artists,” Ornelas said via Instagram. “We decided to name the show Popocalypse to symbolize the rebirth of pop art in Borderland. We both thought the Black Friday weekend after Thanksgiving would be a great opportunity to attract locals and their families coming from out of town for the holiday while also capitalizing on the start of the holiday shopping season.”
