Two Nights of September Art Walk

It was not your typical art weekend for Pomona this September. Things started off a day early with 3 receptions being held on Friday the day before art walk. These special openings were a part of what I like to call, "Roland's Weekend". Things kicked off around 5pm with the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony for Andi Campognone Projects at their new location at the Downtown Center. Just and hour later, it was the opening reception for "Roland Reiss, Selections from the 1960's". This was accompanied with a huge gathering of former CGU Alumni and the announcement of the "surprise show" in honor of Roland being held at our Bunny Gunner Gallery. "For Roland" is a group show of 45 years of Claremont Graduate School (CGU) Alumni who each created a work of art for Roland. The gallery is full with 256 pieces being sent from all over the world, as far away as Turkey. Come see the show, it's up for a month. Another 3 CGU Alumni, by coincidence, happens to be showing the same night at Pedersen Projects. Kirk Pedersen opened his doors on Friday night to welcome all the guests that came out for the two "Roland Night" events. Friday? you say, what about 2nd Satruday? Well, round two it was, with even more people out enjoying Friday's 3 shows along with the 40 other galleries' events. The dA opened with their "Out of the Woods" exhibit featuring all art created from wood. SCA Gallery presented a Cal Sate Fullerton group show. dba256 brought in an artist with "Liquid Abstraction". Metro Gallery featured the art of R.T. Pece with his "Enhanced Film Stills". Besides the mentions, there were numerous other opening that info can be found for on So with so much going on in September, be sure to come and be part of it.
