When I was in New Mexico I had the pleasure of seeing an artist comrade, Dennis Larkins. Dennis went back a long way with the Grateful Dead, designing their Dead Set album cover and the Radio City poster as well as a bunch of other stuff. An old friend of John Morris.
Larkins shows at some very hip galleries and has a new book out. I detect hints of Robert Williams and the Juxtapose guys but he has managed to craft out his own unique corner and vision. His image bank is decidedly 50's with a space age twist, think Elsie the cow doing the cha cha with the creature from the black lagoon.
Sacred Gallery NYC is pleased to announce:

If you are in New York and have the inclination and a taste for this sort of imagery, do your brain a favor and give it a visit.
