When Magnolia Gallery owner Scott Horn told us Bruce Lee Webb’s new exhibition would be a “barn-burner,” we immediately imagined Southern Gothic of Faulknerian proportions. And, though he has traveled the world garnering a “flea market education,” this Texan artist's homegrown cultural archeology never disappoints. Primarily based in Waxahachie, where his own Webb Art Gallery is located, Webb produces exquisitely grotesque work inspired and informed by vintage Americana, featuring signature Cowboys and Indians, distorted and ignited with pop-art flair. His New Works runs from March 22 through April 25 at 3699 McKinney Ave. inside the Magnolia Theatre in West Village. Webb will be on hand on 8-11 p.m. March 22 to answer questions while celebrating the exhibition’s opening with a free reception, open to the public.
