Tuesday, August 1, 9 a.m., KVIE Gallery, no cover
One has to appreciate the way Jared Konopitski titles his pieces, which read like plotlines to early childhood dreams, fitting because the art looks just as otherworldly. The illustration pictured on the right is called “He harvests the tree orbs during the neon storms so that he has the best of the crop.” Like what you see? It’s one of 12 surreal pieces showcased in the local artist’s new exhibit opening this week at KVIE Studios. The exhibit runs through September 29 with a reception at 6 p.m. on August 17. 2030 West El Camino Avenue, www.kvie.org/events/kvie-gallery.
