Get Your Licks

See some art that’s guaranteed to make even the ice cream man melt. This month, 222 Imperial Gallery presents Ice Cream Pop, a group show for which 21 local artists created delicious pieces of art containing everyone’s favorite summer dessert (222 E. Imperial Ave., 6-midnight Fridays, through Aug. 31, free, 271-2844). Here are five tastes:

“Ice Creamy” by Kitschy Chic ($55).
This larger-than-life ice-cream cone not only captivates kids but also catches the viewer’s eye with its vintage feel and attention-grabbing slogan.

skyski_250w.jpg

“A I SU KU RI MU” by Sky Ski ($90). Will this ninja ever learn the hazards of taking ice cream from a child? All bets are on the little girl being able to hold on to what is rightfully hers, no matter how scary that sword may be.

ice-cream-pop-theresa-l_250w.jpg

Pure Sugar by Theresa Lucero ($95). These sherbet colors are so appealing that they make you want to visit an ice cream shop after viewing. Oh, and don’t forget to replace the cherry on top with a cute little girl’s skull.

icecreamcold.102224604_std_250w.jpg

“Ice Cream Cold Radiator Hot” by Biscuit Street Preacher ($3,000). It’s all about the details in this piece. The depictions of assorted ice cream options come together to form an even bigger picture of your neighborhood ice cream truck.

icecreamdreams_250w.jpg

Ice Cream Dreams by Joel Spencer ($450/pair). This one is the gallery owner’s very own creation. He keeps it simple but oh-so-sweet by sculpting his ice cream cones out of clay.

The pop culture décor of Angee Jackson’s living room says a lot about her own art. In the corner, she’s got a 1965 Lucky Strike pinball machine with fantastic drawings of suburban women bowling. Next to that are three pink Eames-esque fiberglass shell chairs that look fresh from a funky old Laundromat. Beyond that is an enormous shelf of vinyl records. Then there’s the 4-foot-high thrift-store painting of an eight-point buck, praying hands and a serpent.
