Works Gallery
Artist Information

Guerrero Gallery is pleased to present Summer Slam, an exhibition of new works by Thom Lessner. Lessner’s work draws a good deal of influence from 1980s popular culture and rock bands. His caricatured rock gods serve as stand-ins holding the place for a desired myth while also paying homage to personal heroes.
