Art Shows Tonight at the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk!

Tonight is the first Friday of the month, and that mean's it's the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk, a free multi-venue art experience that happens every month.  It's from 6-10pm.  Here are some of the art shows you can check out!

Hibbleton Gallery presents "ADDITIONAL SPACE, a juried exhibition featuring work by 23 artists from the Biola University Art Department. ADDITIONAL SPACE challenges us to think about the many different types of spaces that we inhabit: physical, representational, architectural, abstract, compositional, psychological, social/relational, sacred/religious, and more. The show explores these themes through a variety of creative media, including: drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and video.

Bookmachine presents "The Death of Kelly Thomas" a zine release. Local artist/writer Felipe Flores has created a short graphic novella of the final moments of the life of Kelly Thomas, a local homeless man who was killed by Fullerton police in 2011. Using only direct quotations from the audio recording of the encounter, Flores has created a powerful testament, and enduring witness of this local tragedy. Art and writing can be important ways of understanding, facing, and dealing with painful reality. Flores' work creates a powerful response, and opens dialogue about the increasingly disturbing trend of police brutality in America. The zine encourages us to ponder how much has changed, or not changed, since that fateful night in Fullerton--July 5, 2011. 

TONIGHT at PÄS Gallery, come check out the artwork and jewelry of Kristy Prince!

SHARE THE GOOD: "I am planning to give 20% of my proceeds to my friend, Benite Juene’s school in Haiti, which is called Institution Classique Chretienne, de Vignier Secondare. Through CCVS, Pastor Benite educates over 500 children, preparing them for college and future professions. Each child is sponsored, for a total of approximately $300 USD annually, to attend. In addition to their education, the school provides a feeding program that gives the children their (most likely) only meal of the day. " - Michael Smith

Carpe Diem Experience is excited to have Sydney Hensler of Native Sea Creative as their featured artist!  Sydney is a San Juan Capistrano based painter and designer born and raised in Orange County, CA. Her work is influenced by her love of nature, animals, the ocean, and the exploration of all forms of art and creativity. Come join us at The General Store Friday night for some shopping and art from 6-10 p.m.!

Stop by Lucero Photography for some LIVE music by local artists They Call Us Scoundrels. First set to start at 8pm, see you then!

oh, hello friend is happy to feature the humorous illustrator and designer Chelsea Delgadillo on Friday, April 3. Chelsea is a local BFA student at Cal Poly Pomona. She works in classrooms, shady lawns, or coffee shops where she seeks the input of friends, family, and even strangers. Chelsea’s process begins with doodling, then the lines are retraced with micron pens, and lastly she scans her drawings to add color digitally. Her illustrations feature dynamic character design, thoughtful use of color theory, and simplified shapes and depth. Each character is created to exist in a saccharine and vacuous universe where gravity does not exist and everything is slightly askew.

Also, Marjorie Kerr will be showing at LOLO: a boutique!

Plus, check out the fun and artwork at the Fullerton Museum Center.

There's so much to do, see, and hear tonight at the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk!
