Bits, Please: a modern collage artist compilation

PAS_Aug-Sep15

PÄS Gallery presents
“Bits, Please” a modern collage artist compilation
curated by Brian Prince, featuring the works of
Justin Angelos, Ken Ruzic, Michael Ziobrowski, Leanne Sargeant, Candace Magoski, Johnny Renggli, René Cardona, Cody Lusby, John M. Sollom, Emily Heller, and Chantal deFelice.

The craft. Fragmented folklore. Cutting. Pasting. Embellish. Defacing. Bits and pieces. Creating something completely new from something else by adding elements into a personally curated composition — that is the art of collage and assemblage. For those who say that collage is merely a hobby and not an effective and legitimate medium for expressing yourself, i say, “bits, please.”

Please join us for two opening receptions,
Friday, August 7, 2015 and Friday, September 4, 2015
from 6-10p. Refreshments will be served.

Think fast.

PÄS Gallery invites you to cast an eye ball on our latest exhibit. Drive your muscle car down after the ball game and quick bite chased by apple pie on Friday, June 5th from 6 to 10 in the evening. Two of our favorite Americana artists will cover the walls with some of the purest ingredients to American culture. Their work will meld our fickle American culture, our history, dark and scary, our zest for boom boom, funky pop graphics, guns, guns, and more guns, Dick Cheney, some scary terrorists paintings and some sexy ladies, and a couple of guys. Excepted or not, we cannot escape the truth.

Join us as we embrace Sex, Violence and The American Way: recent works of John M. Sollom and Cody Lusby.

See you during the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk.

Recent Works of Kristy Prince

“Being opened and allowing the creative spirit to have it’s way with me has left me in a continuous flow of creativity and courage I have never known before.”

“I am truly excited by life and thrive on the creative process—from my backyard art studio, to my garden, all the way to the hills of Nipton. I wake up each day like a child wondering what could be next—where will my ‘YES’ path take me today?”

—Kristy Prince

PÄS Gallery presents

Fusion Art Works

Yohannes “Johnny” Renggli

Johnny Renggli mixes art forms, mediums and functions which allow him to describe and demonstrate a simple idea that grows and evolves into a wonderful work of expressive art. His collaborative process fuses painting, collage, crafts and more to achieve the realisation of each piece’s original vision.

Johnny comes from a creative background as an entrepreneur who has designed and restored many projects including a little cafe, a cozy world renowned Mask Bar, and a traditional Ethiopian restaurant with an underground bar. He is a father, husband, teacher and an astronomy enthusiast. Today, he takes time to play and express life through his fusion art works.

Join us on Friday, January 2, 2015 from 6-10pm for the opening reception. We will also host an Artist Talk in mid-late January (TBD). Works will be on display through February 6, 2015. All ages. Always free.

RSVP on Facebook.

Ken Ruzic!

Sympathies & Antipathies Ken Ruzic!

We are so fortunate, honored, and downright lucky to have Ken Ruzic exhibit his “Monumental Work and Stuff” for November in a show titled, “Sympathies & Antipathies.” The detail in his works are both endearing and disturbing as you’re drawn in by his friendly aesthetic only to get deeper where you are stating acronyms such as WTF and OMG and maybe a little LOL when you reach a point of focus in between the lines. Ken Ruzic is prolific to say the least. And we are excited to share two galleries of the Magoski Arts Colony walls filled with his mind-bending work…

Come out Friday, November 7 from 6-10 when we’ll have Ken’s work stretched from the front of PÄS to the end of the Egan. See you there.

As always, it’s free.
