Two of the colony's finest, A.S. Ashley and Juan Thorp are showing their art in Santa Ana on Saturday, September 6th along with 61 other artist at OCCCA in the heart of the the artist village.
More than 600 images were submitted and of these juror Mat Gleason (editor and publisher of Coagula Magazine) selected 63 pieces to create a wonderfully imaginative show.
Santa Ana's artwalk is from 7:00-10:00 and there are a lot of galleries and lots of places to grab a bite to eat....my favorite is the Gypsy Den, which I have wished for years that they would open a restaurant in Downtown Pomona. The Gypsy Den is located at 125 N. Broadway next to CSUF Grand Central Art Center, which has two really good shows as well:
Aspects of Mel's Hole curated by Doug Harvey artists respond to a paranormal land event occurring in radiospace;
New paintings by Bradford J. Salamon
We have lots of friends in Santa Ana, this is where Cheryl Bookout and Patrick Webster, the directors of SCA came from in 1999 and Susie Eaton of Bunny Gunner in 2000. Every second and last Saturday we have scores of Santa Ana artists coming to Pomona, in fact many are involved in galleries here either showing their art or buying art or just helping us out. We love our friends from Santa Ana ;-)
