Some of the top artists in the world of pop surrealism and lowbrow art pay homage to the world’s most famous mouse in a group show coming to Fort Myers this summer.
The Greedy Mouse Group Show honors Disney’s icon in a way not imagined by Walt or his Imagineers. Among the artists taking Mickey down to their level is a who’s who of lowbrow: Derek Hess, Bask, Skot Olsen, Pooch, Scott Scheidly, Andrew Spear, Todd Nolan, N! Satterfield, Rodney Jackson, James “Jimmy Utah” Peterson, Clay McCay, Matt Lackey, Andy Howl, Raymond Hernandez, Mark Stewart, Scott Snyder, Stephen Hayford, Mark Cranford, Mandalin Paul, David Acevedo, Christina Penuel, and Cesar Aguilera.
The show kicks off with an opening reception at Howl Art Gallery and Tattoo Studio in Downtown Fort Myers from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, July 6. It continues through July 31. The gallery is at 1514 Broadway #101. Call (239) 332-0161 or visit HowlGallery.com.

After participating in the Greedy Mouse show, South Florida artist Mike “Pooch” Pucciarelli returns for a solo exhibition in August. A master of both tattoo art and incredibly creative paintings, Pooch invites you into another world with his outrageously detailed work.
Over the past decade, Pooch’s fine art has been shown at galleries across the country. His tattoo studio, Altered State in Lake Worth, has been specializing in custom work since 1996. The exhibit opens Aug. 3 and runs through Aug. 31.

I’ve been there, it was really cool if you’re in to the lowbrow art.
