This Friday at the Downtown Fullerton heART Walk!

For the October Downtown Fullerton Art Walk, selected art walk venues are partnering with local non-profit All the Arts for All the Kids, to raise awareness and funds for children's art education.  In addition to seeing all the art on the walls, visitors can check out the ceramic hearts created by local artists for this program.

Here are some of the exhibits you can see this Friday, October 3 from 6-10pm, at the Art Walk...

Hibbleton Gallery is proud to partner with All the Arts for All the Kids, for a special exhibit during the “Heart Walk” entitled “All the Artists for all the Kids!”  The All the Arts for All the Kids Foundation is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to developing, sustaining, and supporting the arts as an intrinsic part of every child’s education.  This exhibit, curated by teacher Lauren Moses Oldfield and All the Arts instructor/artist Caitlin Orr, gives the kids from All the Arts a chance to show their work. Well be selling tickets for the All the Arts pin auction and inviting artists and the public to participate in that event on November 8th, 2014.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the foundation, as well as 100% of the merchandise sold at the event such as kids’ art notecards, heart notecards, kid created mugs and tiles.

The Egan Gallery is proud to present “Knackers Yard” a retrospective look at the development of artist William Zdan from working class Detroit punker up to selected pieces from his most recent work “The Humors” an exhibition held at La Luz De Jesus Gallery in LA this summer.  William Zdan was raised in the manufacturing community of Detroit, and this has unquestionably influenced his world view. Classic techniques and religious iconography are stripped of their cliché and given new provocation. His most recent series examines the longstanding connections between medicine, secular art and social defiance. The Humors (the preponderance of body fluids, respective organs, earth elements and corresponding human temperaments) are found in each of the paintings, along with bloodletting tools, leeches and other (now debunked and marginalized) medical conventions (like phrenology).

You are invited the the next art show + zine release at BOOKMACHINE books + zines entitled “Suburban Nightmare: Punk in OC.” This zine, originally released in 2010, gives a brief history of the bands, venues, artwork, and style that was and is Orange County punk rock. The zine highlights the rich history of punk counter-culture in Orange County, and its continued relevance today. Orange County has stereotypes of conservative politics, affluence, and materialism. However, this show represents the presence of an underground culture that arose in direct antagonism to these stereotypes, and how that underground exists today. The zine seeks to question prevailing cultural attitudes, and presents an alternative attitude of free expression. On display, will be old and new school punk flyers and LP art from the collections of Jesse La Tour and Stephan Baxter. See you there!

Visit Oh, Hello Friend during the October 3 Fullerton Art Walk to see the work of Sienne Josselin. Sienne is an Illustrator and Art Educator living and working in Silverlake, Los Angeles. Her current work reflects themes in nature with a contrasting mix of illustrated linework, from playful to provocatively detailed bending realism. Part of her sales give back to organizations or causes in need.

Visit Internal Gallery & Oddities and see a special exhibition of hauntingly conceptual mixed media art by Adam Watts.

Be sure to stop by Carpe Diem Experience, a multi-venue artful living marketplace, and check out the art of Janice Monaco and handcrafted wares by local artists.

Stop by Roadkill Ranch and check out work by local artist Katie Perdue.

Inside the Magoski Arts Colony, local artist Esther Jacks is showing her work in an exhibit called "Darker Introspection."

These are just a few of the exhibits you can check out this Friday.  For a full list of venues visit  Or check out the Facebook page:
