Second Saturday continues to grow. October 2010 art walk paved the way for some new galleries joining the ever-growing colony. Indigo Gallery opened it's doors with a show titled "Artists We Know".
Gallery owners Chris and Jen did an excellent job of presenting the art of some dozen "regular" artists. On the other end of the colony, NY Delight had their grand opening of their sandwich/pastry shop and gallery.Lee Tintary was invited to exhibit his photographs on the freshly painted walls. Pedersen Projects presented "Urban Iconography" and the art of Shark Toof with a collection of pop imagery with a urban edge. Ink'd Chronicles and PUSH joined forces to hold a tattoo fashion show on 2nd St. complete with a catwalk, bands and a dj. The event was held as an annual fundraiser for breast cancer. At Bunny Gunner, we were please to exhibit the art of Karen Green. She had a great crowd come through all enjoyed her pieces and asking questions about her technique. As annual tradition, the dA Gallery exhibited "Nacio en Aztlan" or it's yearly Chicano influenced art show. The exhibition included work from various artists all over Southern California, a Mariachi and even some Aztec Dancers in full costume. Metro Gallery featured the art of Steve Ruiz with his "Sense of Community" paintings. I was able to take a short stroll outside and noticed who much the art walk has grown. There were crowds of people all over the entire colony, listening to live music, people watching, looking at art or just hanging out. It has been a busy season and promises to continue on through the year, see you at the end of the month for last Saturday Art Walk October 30th.
