Claiming its place on the vanguard of the Pop surrealist and "lowbrow" art movements, Billy Shire's La Luz de Jesus Gallery, established in 1986 and originally on Melrose Avenue, will launch a behemoth two-part group show, "La Luz de Jesus 25," featuring more than 260 artists who have exhibited there since the gallery's inception, among them: Gary Baseman, Joe Coleman, Matt Groening, Frank Kozik, Elizabeth McGrath, Mark Mothersbaugh, Gary Panter, Marion Peck and Mark Ryden. A companion book, "La Luz de Jesus 25: The Little Gallery That Could," documents every work in the show and features personal anecdotes from artists about the gallery and its founder. Stay tuned for "Part 2," opening in early November. La Luz de Jesus Gallery, 4633 Hollywood Blvd., L.A. Opening reception Fri.-Sat., 8-11 p.m. Free. (323) 666-7667. http://www.laluzdejesus.com.
