Preciado with his famous “grpahic ladies” in the 80s
One of our most popular exhibitors over the years has been Luis Preciado, and we are looking forward to his return next month when he launches a show themed “Art of Autos”. A lifetime love-affair with cars has led this acclaimed artist and muralist to devote an entire show to them, along with a bonus classic car expo in our own parking lot!
Luis’s highly-graphic, monochromatic style made him a popular poster producer in the 1980s, when he lived and worked in Southern California. They were seen everywhere, it seemed…(you may recall these, per photo above.) Some of his acclaimed murals in around San Diego became a part of the local landscape.

Be sure to join us when we welcome back Luis with a reception on April 3 at 1 PM!
