SPACE Grand Opening

SPACE held its Grand Opening on October 25. The day was filled with people coming in to see the renovated space and to look at the art and books on display. Passerby stopped to view the amazing life-size skeletons and "zombie" in the storefront window, created by local artist/designer Lillian Montalvo, while inside children made colorful Day of the Dead masks and ate Halloween cookies. In the evening featured artists Stephanie Mercado and Dolores Carlos (pictured above) joined us to talk about their series of etchings and lineoleum cut prints. By nightfall the place was packed with people toasting to the success of SPACE and its potential for being an inspiring community destination for creative souls.

Our next art opening is November 15, which will feature over 10 artists exploring the theme of "Urban Birds".

SPACE is also excited to offer our first art workshops: a Collage Art class for adults beginning November 13 and a Drawing/Illustration class for children age 9 - 11 starting in Nov. 14.
