This doesn’t happen very often, but from time to time we find photos for art shows that we have hosted and we cannot remember the date of the show. Granted, this was in the early days of the gallery, as you can tell from the quality of the photos. We know this was a three person art show that featured Tyoni Aragon, Joel Beers a.k.a. SRPNT WOLF and Pavel Acevedo. We’ll update this info once its validated, until then enjoy these images from the night.
Aug 1st, 2015- No frills, no gimmicks. Just a good ol’ art show for the first of the month. We would like to thank RASK, XPLODE, Ed Gutter, DARCS, GERMIZM, Susie Cue, Tyoni Aragon, Tanya Rose, VGML, Pablo Damas, Jonathan Martinez, Mary Rose and Brittney Camille Gonzalez for bringing in art and participating in this month’s art walk.
A huge shout out to AWOL ONE and XPLODE for painting live during the event. Thank you to Shadow, DJ Real and a very heart felt thank you from all of us at GCS to DJ AB, for this was his last art walk with us before his move to the state of Washington. God speed, sir.
JULY 3rd, 2015- To commemorate the Independence holiday, we decided to throw an art show and in store to start the weekend off right. The 4th is the kind of holiday that no one wants to work and neither did we. We were very fortunate to get a great line up going for the night which featured the art work of Susie Cue and Tanya Rose. Music for the evening was provided by Os One, Vision and Mando the Dj a.k.a. G.I.A.N.T.S. Music, Okira Myth and Dulok Shaman of GRIZZLY STATE. Also, NAMEK and Josiah Deadflowers of Chamber Records. Backing up the whole night was DJ AB, Real and Deejay Great Daine. Live painting for the night done by Nick Macaulay a.k.a. NMAC and KENOS ONE. Enjoy some pictures from the night…. and as always, more to come.
JUNE 6th, 2015- This month’s art walk had a lot in store for everyone. Not only was it the monthly first saturday of the month art walk, but East End Santa Ana held their second annual EAST END BLOCK PARTY, as well as the traveling beatswapmeet. This post is an attempt to capture all the happenings at GCS on this day. I’m sure this will take more than one post, so here we go.
THEYDRIFT a.k.a. Carlos Aguilar and KSRA were our featured artists of the month in our gallery. In addition to the great pieces that they brought with them, they painted live through out the day for the art walk crowd.
JROZ, MC Prototype and Jook blessed the mics this evening.
DJ’s Daine, Real, AB and Neuropunk gave the gallery a great vibe through sound vibrations.
3rdi, Hippieone and Q-Vo also had a chance to share their art with the public.
And to top off the evening, Burst Rock and Tic Tac hosted our first breaking and popping battle held in our new location. B-Boy Tekken and Popper Chris won the night.
GCS is happy to announce our event for JUNE ART WALK. We’re calling it GCS BLOCK PARTY in keeping with the theme of the EAST END BLOCK PARTY. What is that you ask? Well, its like the art walk amplified 10 fold. 4th street will be blocked off to allow for a few music stages. The Beatswapmeet will also be the neighborhood so saying that the day (and night) is going to get busy down here is an understatement.
April 4th, 2015. There it goes again. That time of the month that we look forward to and build up to. The first saturday art walk. The goal of this month’s show was to fill the gallery space to the brim with friends, recently made as well as the tried and tested. And it went off without a hitch. We had 3 music performances spaced out throughout the night, we had two artist painting live outside our doors and most of all, we had a great crowd of eager patrons and art fans come out and enjoy some of their night with us. Here is a photo re-cap of the show that will be in our gallery for the rest of the month, enjoy!
May 3, 2014. Heres a look back at our May 2014 art walk. A collection of GCS veterans. This exposition brought together pieces from 4 or 5 different previous art shows here in our gallery. How many can you name?
