Things to see at the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk this Friday!

This Friday is the monthly Downtown Fullerton Art Walk.  I'm really excited about the variety of shows we have this month.  Here are some of them...

Hibbleton Gallery and PAS Gallery (in the Magoski Arts Colony) are teaming up with local non-profit All the Arts for All the Kids Foundation for a very special show featuring work by students and teachers from this program, which provides arts programs to local elementary schools.

Right next door to Hibbleton is BOOKMACHINE books + zines, which will be featuring an exhibit entitled X-Border(less).  The work presented is a collection of mail art from inividuals who contributed to the box set called Linea Quebrada/The Broken Line. The project consists of a avant-garde installation/art magazine developed by performance artist Guillermo Gomez-Peña in collaboration with Marco Vinicio.

Right next to BOOKMACHINE is The Egan Gallery, which is featuring a show entitled "Rescue Me", which is in support of pet adoption, and features some really amazing socal artists like William Zdan, John M. Sollom, and Kelly Castillo.

Heading down Harbor Boulevard, be sure to check out Blanquel Popular Art, featuring  the handcrafted artwork of brothers Florencio and Nestor, who have been making custom furniture and Latin American art for many years in downtown Fullerton. 

Head down Commonwealth Avenue and stop by Lux Salon for and art show called "Deep Blue" featuring the work of Karen Hogan.  Deep Blue is a series dealing with two aspects of the ocean: the beauty of surfing along with ocean health. Karen has always been drawn to the sport of surfing as a viewer and as a result she is concerned with ocean conservation.

Also on Commonwealth is Roadkill Ranch, which is featuring an exhibit by Trina Jaridly Widney called  "New Beginnings".  Also be sure to check out the live music by Guy Nelson. 

Walk over to the Fullerton Museum Center for their current exhibit, "Jean-Michel Basquiat: an Intimate Portrait."  This exhibit is an intimate look at the friendship between artists Nicholas Taylor and Jean-Michel Basquiat, a camaraderie that was born under the pulsating lights of New York’s famed Mudd Club in 1979. 

Also on display in the Foyer Gallery will be contemporary art inspired by Basquiat including work by GERMS, Franz Criego and Clint Kalima.

In the auditorium, guests can show their creative side at our open mic night! Come join us in our auditorium to listen to poetry – or share your own. Then stick around for the jazz performance! Registration for Open Mic starts at 6pm, show starts at 7pm.

Don't miss the exhibit at Unity Salon, featuring photographs by Red Ink Photography!
