Raymond Family Art Night 2014

For the 4th time, we put on an Art Night at Raymond Elementary School in Fullerton, and for the 4th time, it was a blast! there were multiple stations where hundreds of students and their parents and siblings visit and try a new art medium. the evening is organized by Neighborhood’s own Kristy Prince and the Raymond PTA. the stations were Zines with Jesse La Tour, Draw an Optical Illusion with Chuck Oldfield and Noah Prince, DIY Valentine’s with Lauren Moses Oldfield and Amy Cardona, Character Drawing with Jon St. Amant, Clay Molding with Brian Prince, Paint with René Cardona, Wood Design with Brandon Monkwood Muñoz, Crazy Hair Portraits with Paul and Leanne Sargeant, Printmaking with Anna Hansen, and Animal Eyes with All the Arts for All the Kids. Josué Rivas shot some photos of the night…

july at the magoski arts colony

every first friday of the month brings the downtown fullerton art walk, where multiple venues open up from 6-10p and feature local artists… at the magoski arts colony, it’s really one of the only days that we are open to the public. other than first friday, we usually have closing receptions, hibbleton is currently hosting a summer film festival, and we get together for the occasional party. july’s art walk was the result of a collective, yet diverse, environment… hibbleton and bookmachine played host to “Create Now A Tribute to Alan Watts,” a magnificent display curated by roxanna mostatabi and josue rivas, chantal defelice and jason phillips projected their living things in the experimental film room, in PÄS we featured “Betterwill,” an exhibition of upcycled goods, the brand new egan gallery featured excellent works of fullerton college tranferring students, violethour displayed photography of temples from across the planet, patrick cooked up the goods in the kitch, and brandon monk munoz hosted the open house for his new studio called Monkwood… the evening was filled with smiles and laughter as the crowds gathered under a 3,500 paper crane and boat installation from Anna Hansen which stretched the common hallway 200 feet down the center of the Magoski Arts Colony…

Microstars — opening reception

April’s art walk was another fun adventure… Dan Joyce is always a up for a good time. his stories are light, his thoughts are heavy, he’s experienced more than your average 47 year old, and he’s on display at PÄS for only one more week! below are some snap shots from his opening reception during the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk:

And to our pleasant surprise, Ed Templeton showed up for Ted Trager’s zine show in Bookmachine!

If you missed the opening, the gallery will be open this thursday, april 18 from 1-5pm, and we will have a closing reception saturday evening, april 20th at 7pm. hope to see you!
