ELMHURST – “Deviant Pop,” an invitational show of pop surrealism, or underground lowbrow art, is now on exhibit in the Elmhurst Artists’ Guild Gallery.

To help celebrate, EAG will host an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6 at the Elmhurst Art Museum, 150 S. Cottage Hill Ave. The reception is free and open to the public.

The unusual, often humorous and cartoon-like art is the product of five Chicago artists associated with OhNo!Doom, a Chicago artist collective made up of designers, illustrators and plush artists, according to an EAG news release.

The exhibit runs through Jan. 17. The gallery is open during regular museum hours: from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday; from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday; and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. 

Friday is the Museum’s free admission day. At other times, admission for adults is $5, seniors and students $3, and children under 5 are free.
