July Exhibit

2024 July Gallery Mr. Burgher.png

The work of pop-surrealism artist Mr. Burgher will be displayed at Creston Arts Depot Gallery for the month of July.


This exhibit will showcase colored pencil and ink surrealist pop art drawings, many on maps. Much of the artist’s work intertwines personal history with broader social and cultural themes. Many figures and icons from pop culture appear in his art. His work aims to provoke thought, elicit emotion, and invite conversation. 


Mr. Burgher is an Iowa native: born in Clarion; adopted and raised in Dallas Center; educated at the University of Northern Iowa; and worked in public schools/community colleges in Okoboji, Grimes, and Ankeny. In 2018, Mr. Burgher stepped out of the classroom and into his studio. Read more about the artist at
