Gallery1988: LA is proud to announce a special engagement exhibition, "Americana," a solo show from Bay Area artist Reuben Rude. Opening Tuesday night, June 23rd, with an opening reception from 7 - 10 PM, Rude will be debuting all new paintings and prints, a full body of work creating a comprehensive solo show that he's been working on for over a year. Reuben will be in attendance at the opening reception and the show will only run until July 11.
Reuben Rude was born in San Francisco, as the sun was setting on the Free Love era. His Bohemian parents then moved "back to the land," to the woods of Nothern California, where he spent the better part of his childhood without a television. This lack of technology forced him to spend almost every waking hour drawing and painting. When he moved back to the city to attend Art School, he got into all the usual trouble with graffiti writers, skateboarders and art students. He now lives in San Francisco with his wife and 8-year-old daughter, and yes, a television.
