“Gallery Hijinks, one of the Mission’s newest galleries, is transforming into a psychedelic pop-art wonderland this Saturday, when it opens an exhibit for New York-based collage artist Sebastian Wahl.
In its third solo artist show since opening last July, the gallery will display Wahl’s multilayered mixed-media resin collages. Many are titled “Kaleidoscope Eye,” in reference to their circular repetitions of pictures.
“It’s always exciting to see this place transform,” said gallery owner Jillian Mackintosh, 25. “The show right now is organic and inspired by nature, so I can’t wait to see it as this pop with color…” -Molly Rosenthal
