We continue the year long celebration of the 20th anniversary of the First Thursday Artwalk. The free Artwalk Tour gives a one hour sample of the diverse art scene in San Pedro, visiting about 3 galleries/studios – different each month. The tour gathers at 6:30 in the Chamber of Commerce Board Room Gallery.

The Board Room Gallery will host the Opening Reception for Charlotte Strauss.
“I love working in oils because of the depth and richness of color that can be achieved. I build my paintings with layers of color until I feel I have captured the essence of the subjects. I enjoy the creative process and every work is a new adventure and learning experience.” The artist lives in Colorado and is a member of the International Guild of Realism.

“TRANSITIONS” at DeKor Gallery presents a group show of distinguished Korean artists exploring the changes and shifts around us all. Acrylic, oil, mixed media revealing a glimpse of the ephemeral. Come celebrate these artists of the Korean-American Professional Artists Association & the Orange County Korean Arts Association, meet the artists.

Yong Sin describes her work: The ordered linear grid format is often a composition to experiment with group structure and the dynamics of configurations. There is persistent interplay within each grid that amplifies within a group setting. I create nuances to challenge the ideas of identity, and I create just enough expressive variations to the seemingly recurring shapes.
