Tonight at the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk!

Tonight is the monthly Downtown Fullerton Art Walk!  This is a FREE multi-venue art experience featuring 25 venues all within walking distance.  The Art Walk is from 6-10pm.  For a list of venues, visit  Here are some of the exhibits you can check out tonight…

In the Magoski Arts Colony…

Hibbleton Gallery will be showing an exhibit entitled “Pop & Timber” featuring artwork by Andres Estrada. Estrada’s work may be described as “street art meets jazz age and silent film.” Playing with textures and layers, the artist juxtaposes culturally recognizable images (Charlie Chaplin, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Billie Holiday) with backdrops and textural elements (including wood, canvas, cardboard, and metal) that add to, enhance, and sometimes change the context. For his artwork, Estrada takes pre-existing materials that have already served a purpose in life, can no longer be used for that function, and then repurposes them into something beautiful.

At BOOKMACHINE books + zines, award-winning journalist Gabriel San Roman, in collaboration with artist Carla Zarate Suarez, will be releasing their “Calendar of Revolt”--a unique daily calendar focusing on emancipation struggles of workers, radicals, women, people of color, and the LGBT community throughout the history of the United States and elsewhere. Illustrations by Zarate capture pivotal moments and protagonists from the Haymarket Riot to Chief Sitting Bull. With the research of San Roman, every day is filled with a historical event. The Calendar of Revolt 2015 is unabashedly radical, truly unique and unlike any other! Gabriel San Roman will also be signing his first book entitled “Venceremos: Víctor Jara and the New Chilean Song Movement.” 

PAS Gallery will feature MonuMental Works and Stuff from the Seething mind and Frantic hand of Ken Ruzic! Big Works! Little Works! Happy Paintings! Sad paintings! But mostly RAD Paintings! Come see what all the Hullabaloo is all About! curated with Brian Prince, this exhibition holds many surprises! like the title implies....Paintings that Attract and Repel each other for oh,so many Reasons!

Artist Myra Bryan has some new work for tonights fullerton art walk! Myra’s work uses multiple mediums including vintage papers to depict relatable, emotional and evocotive works. Her ice-cream-color palet is a juxtapose to the sometimes-painful and thought provoking messages in her work. Myra is a Magoski Arts Colony treasure.
