“MST3K Attacks” by Chet Phillips
James Monosmith’s Ltd. Art Gallery in Seattle premiered the “Rayguns and Robots!” sci-fi art show earlier this month. The exhibition runs until July 22nd and features new works from 40 artists influenced by 1940s and ’50s sci-fi aesthetic and classic franchises like Star Trek, MST3K, and Blade Runner.
The show is being guest curated by Chris Jackson, the art director of Acme Archives (publisher of art from Pixar, Disney, The Simpsons, etc.) and the frontman for the band Nice Guy Eddie.
Our 20 favorite works of sci-fi art from the 70 on display at Rayguns and Robots! are gathered below. All pictures courtesy of Ltd. Art Gallery. Thanks to Wired for the assist.
