Pop Art Gallery and Custom Framing, 254 Main St. in Placerville, is featuring artist Gary Houston. Known for his “gravelly and gritty” style, all of his work is hand made from the lettering to the drawing to the hand-pulled silkscreen print. His art is created in a variety of ways. Some are scratch board illustrations, some are hand cut films and some are inked. He said, “Think of it as a building process as each color is printed, it completes a piece of a puzzle. All of his art is done in limited editions, each piece numbered with his autograph. For more information call 530-622-1235.
