Gallery 1988 in Venice opened a new group show this past Friday, February 11th. “The Road to Shermer: A Tribute to John Hughes” features original art and prints from an impressive list of artists, and will be run until March 4th. All of your favorite John Hughes movies have been reinterpreted by such artists as Aaron Jasinski, Audrey Pongracz, Augie Pagan, Ben Walker, Brandon Sopinsky, Chris Tezber, Dave MacDowell, Israel Sanchez, Jesse Riggle, Kelly Vivanco, Kevin Tong, Munk One, N.C. Winters, Nicole Guice, Rich Pellegrino, and many more. I’m not the biggest fan of theme shows like this, but this is a good one. There is so much material to work from when it comes to Hughes’ movies, and these artists did a killer job. I really like what Aaron Jasinski, Rich Pellegrino, N.C. Winters, and of course Dave MacDowell who has been using Hughes and inspiration for years. The prints also look great, Derek Deal created an amazing Planes, Trains, and Automobiles print.
