“ZooZeum,” a free, solo exhibition of artist Daniel Peacock’s whimsical work, hosted by the South Pasadena Arts Council, opens July 16, 2022, at the SPARC Gallery in South Pasadena as part of the annual South Pasadena Summer Arts Crawl, with a reception from 4 to 7 p.m. The exhibition will run through September 10, 2022.
Peacock’s unique paintings have been seen in exhibitions at the Mendenhall-Sobieski Gallery in Pasadena, La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles, and BGH Gallery in Santa Monica. These playfully enigmatic works are inspired by a wide range of influences—from 1930s animation styles and Disney Legend animator Ub Iwerks to artists Neo Rausch and Amedeo Modigliani, marimba music, “and a good cup of green tea.”
Admission to “ZooZeum” is free. The SPARC Gallery, operated by the South Pasadena Arts Council, is located inside the Chamber of Commerce at 1121 Mission St., South Pasadena. (Masks are recommended.) Following the July 16 opening, Gallery hours will vary. To schedule a visit, contact Blue Trimarchi at (626) 676-4195.)
