Art double-feature: sf/steampunk exhibits

Lowell Art Works exhibits sci-fi and steampunk inspired art June 20-July 12 at 5205 S. 2nd Ave., Everett. "It Came From Outer-Lowell!", curated by artists Jules Anslow and Mike Capp, will feature monsters, robots, aliens, mutant eels, cyborg supermodels, six-armed ant boys of ancient legend, and root-cellar-chemistry-set-experiments-gone-awry.

To bring together “Steampunk: The Art and Science of Future-Victorian Tech," Anslow, directed artists to, "Think: Jules Verne meets Rube Goldberg. Wild Wild West. Mad Max. Even a little Blade Runner. Steamboy, an animated film, captures the concept. Imagine if your microwave had carved wood trim, brass fittings, jeweled buttons that lit up, curved brass feet, and a four-pane window with red-velvet curtains on the front."

A reception for both exhibits, a.k.a. the opening invasion, will be 4-9 p.m., Sat., June 20.

Lowell Art Works gallery hours are: 1-5 p.m., Saturdays, 1-4 p.m., Sundays and 4-9 p.m. on third Saturdays for the Everett Art Walk. Call 425-923-3635.
