Lucid Dreaming art exhibit

January 30, 2017 - February 28, 2017

Hyde Gallery at Grossmont College, Building 25

Gallery director Alex DeCosta , (619) 644-7299

Grossmont College's Hyde Art Gallery opens the spring semester with "Lucid Dreaming," featuring the works of Alexia Markarian and Barbara Sexton and a selection of works by early 20th century masters and  pieces from the San Diego Mesa College African Art collection starting Jan. 30  in Building 25. The exhibit continues through Feb. 28. Markarian is a local artist who works in a wide range of media, including paintings, sculpture, jewelry and mixed media. Sexton is a social-political artist whose practice spans a broad range of disciplines including installations, drawings, photography, digital media, sound, sculpture and technology.

“Relationships can be drawn between any artwork and other historical periods and styles and the thought behind 'Lucid Dreaming' was to create a conversation between the past and the present," said Kraig Cavanaugh, guest curator and art history professor at San Diego Mesa College.

Lucid Dreaming will include important works by such artists as Hans Arp, Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Meret Oppenheim, Man Ray and many others side by side with African artworks and those by Markarian and Sexton – displayed without any hierarchy.
An exhibition reception is set for 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb.15, with a live performance by jazz guitarist Jeff Hofmockel and refreshments. Admission is always free and the public is encouraged to attend. For additional information, contact gallery director, Alex DeCosta at (619) 644-7299 or
