THE ADVOCATE ARTICLE
I scrolled through the samples that they posted in their slide show. The work is AMAZING.
I also fell off my chair with slide #13.
Slide # 13 is my IRISH HARE:

SURREAL SALON 8
Surreal Salon 8 is aimed at once again engaging audiences in a multi-sensory art experience like no other in the region by shedding light on the growing popularity and exceptional quality of the pop-surrealist/lowbrow movement. Submissions were reviewed via a blind jurying process that ensured that works were selected based solely on their artistic merit (the juror did not see an artist’s name, resume or contact information).
Over the years, Surreal Salon has enlisted well-known and well-respected jurors for Surreal Salon – including the co-founder of Juxtapoz Magazine, Greg Escalante and internationally-renowned artist, Shag - to assist in making Surreal Salon as artistically engaging as possible. That tradition is once again renewed in 2016 with one of pop-surrealism's most recognizable artists, Elizabeth McGrath, serving as Special Guest Juror and personally selecting each work to be included in the exhibition from the submissions received. -- Juxtapoz Magazine
