Ed Templeton | Common Side Effects

Ed Templeton’s current exhibition at the Huntington Beach Art Center is an expansive survey of the artist’s work from the last several years to present. The show features some of his most iconic pictures, paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces spread throughout the space in Templeton’s dynamic installation style. Dominating the show are his Teenage Kissers, The Seconds Pass, Wires Crossed and Huntington Beach series, which is an ongoing look into his backyard’s beach culture and suburban sprawl.

At the opening on September 12th, visitors stood in line for the show duration to get Ed’s drawings and musings scrawled across all sorts of ephemera, while listening to live music from bands Freckles and Travesura. Those in attendance were an amazing cross section of art-world aficionados to newbie fans, and local skate groms to pro-skate elite. Deadbeat Club hosted a ‘zine fair and food was catered by Seabirds Kitchen. Beverages were provided by PBR and all made possible with support from RVCA.

Common Side Effects will be on view through November 7th and also includes works by photographers Deanna Templeton, Nolan Hall, Grant Hatfield, Devin Briggs and Soncho Williams.
