PÄS Gallery invites you to explore “Microstars,” a term coined by Dan Joyce, and the title of our next exhibition in April.
A Microstar, as opposed to a Superstar, is someone that is not famous, but has a significant following, usually bringing a steady income. A good example of a Microstar in the exhibit is Rikk Agnew of the punk rock bank, the Adolescents. Rikk was a teen sensation. He now has a successful music business built on his name. Microstars also include artists, models, athletes and anyone individual enough to build his/her name.
Opening Recpetion: Friday, April 5th from 6-10pm during the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk.
Come get a glimpse, take home a Microstar and have a chance to meet Dan Joyce who is a Microstar himself!
Also, during the opening, Dan will be painting portraits live with 100% of the proceeds going towards PÄS Gallery’s own Microstar Kristy Prince, who has a very expensive surgery scheduled in June.
Thanks for supporting the arts in Fullerton!
A couple of years ago, I did a portrait of a musician friend in NY. Her friends were so impressed that they, punk rockers as well, commissioned portraits themselves. Beginning to focus on a series of Punk Rock Portraits, I soon noticed something fantastic. Many of them were successful, middle-class musicians with their own houses, reputations and income all based on their garage band backgrounds. Some where quite known in parts of the country and sometimes, Europe. I coined the term Microstar.
