Copy of Sam Collins-American *Pop Artist* will be celebrated on Thursday, May 10, from 5-8 p.m.

A *Pop Artist* is an artist whose works are inspired by, or a parody or commentary on, popular culture, and whose works tend to fall into the style and technique of the pop art movement. Pop art resonates with most of us because, unlike many avant-garde movements, it incorporates subject matter and techniques with which a wider audience is already familiar. Pop artists favor realism, everyday and even mundane imagery and a weighty dose of irony and wit.

Sam's works capture Americana with a touch of nostalgia. His production technique (aluminum) is a brilliant touch! Pop into the Gallery; we look forward to having you.
