About The Gallery:
Pop Obscure Gallery is located inside Pop Obscure Records – Downtown Los Angeles’ first dedicated all vinyl record store. Located in the Fashion District, Pop Obscure Gallery is dedicated to showcasing works of art by established artists as well as up and comers who reflect a standard of excellence. Featured works express our own passion for all things music, motorcycle, skate and surf. We hope to encourage a sense of community between creators and collectors in a relaxed environment.
Gallery Owner & Curator: Sherry Lee
Sherry embraced her artistic side at a very early age. Painted rocks and glittered pine cones evolved into art & photography classes with mixed media art to published journalistic and commercial pieces. Growing up as a record store kid (& being lucky enough to work in one for over a decade) cemented the union of art, photography and music. Sherry is currently enjoying her 16th year at Freestyle Photographic Supplies where she is the Vice President of Operations and actively assists clients with their own pursuits if excellence in creation and output.

Heather Harris' photographs of musicians have been published in Rolling Stone, MOJO, Billboard, Los Angeles Times, Rock & Folk, Creem, Music Connection, Penguin Books, St. Martin's Press and many more. Spanning Buffalo Springfield to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, her work includes many of the most important figures in rock that came through her native Los Angeles for the last five decades.
She has photographed covers for New York Times top ten best-selling books, has enjoyed several solo exhibitions (though none so extensive a retrospective as this one at Pop Obscure Records & Gallery,) has provided still photography for Warner Brothers television and for assorted films and video productions, plus has garnered awards for music books that were designed, photographed and written by her. She authored the books Punk Rock 'n' Roll and Bob Marley: Rastaman Vibration for A&M Records in the mid-1970s, while her popular blog Fastfilm (http://email@example.com) attests to her skill annotating these photo shoots in lively terms.
Heather Harris hunkers in a 105-year-old farmhouse improbably still in the middle of high-density San Fernando Valley, California with her better half Mr. Twister, former lead singer of Chainsaw and Christopher Milk. Her hobbies encompass equine and canine activities. She personally was thanked in the book Fucked Up and Photocopied: Instant Art of the Punk Rock Movement.
