The Art of Stanley Mouse and Mot

 As Visual Arts Coordinator, every month I organize two shows in the Maurice Del Mue Galleries at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center. This month we’re presenting recent paintings of Stanley Mouse and Mot.

With Alton Kelly, Mouse did eight album covers for the Grateful Dead.

Mot began painting at the age of five and by seven was enrolled in painting instruction at the L.A. County Museum of Art.  He continued his studies favoring the work of Renaissance masters. His work began selling in 1990 and since that time he has exhibited widely.

Mot has painted numerous murals and frescos around Los Angeles and the Bay Area (many of his mural works can be seen in Marin County).  He’s also created posters for the 40th Anniversary of Summer of Love in Golden Gate Park, Fairfax Festival, Music on the Bay, Landsdale Station, Wavy Gravy Summer of Love Revival and Animal Liberation Orchestra. 

Here are a few pieces from the show:
