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.
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!
September 7th, 2013. This month was a collection of artists that we have always loved to show. Included in the night’s festivities was AR, Free Humanity, Jay Open, Liz Killz, Moeeglee, Pernille Damgaard, Germizm, Sick Dot One and Nick Macaulay. Joe Ded set up shop in our front windows for some live painting. Another successful artwalk! Thank you Santa Ana.
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?
Dec. 6th, 2014. GCS clothing store and art gallery presents a little show we like to call GCS All Stars. NO theme, just a show made up of artists that are familiar to our gallery walls. Artists included in this show were Free Humanity, Nick Macaulay, DES, Jess Johnson, Jordan Yescas, Edgar Zamorano, Marcos Camacho a.k.a Nerd Bird, Andre Sandoval, Steady Jenny, GERMIZM, Dino Perez and the works of Ivan Vega a.k.a 3rdi that were still available from the NOV art show. We’re still getting used to our new space and the crowds are steadily finding us in our new place.
In celebration of the November Art Walk and Day of the Dead, GCS presented “Bringing Out The Dead II”. An art show that brought out different aspects of life and death and the beauty that comes from both. This was the second year that this theme was explored and it was just as impactful as the previous show. The roster included some artists that are familiar to the GCS audience as well as a few new names. It was non-stop crowds all evening long as the night coincided with the “Noche De Altares” street festival two blocks over.
NOV 2nd, 2013 brought to GCS Clothing Store and Art Gallery the second installment of “Bringing Out The Dead” art show. Our version of the celebration of life and what comes at the end of it. Not your typical day of the dead art show, our hand selected artists put thier own unique twist on the themes and emotions involved with this time of the season.
The roster of artists that contributed work goes as follows: EGADS, Tyoni Aragon, Jonathan Martinez, Mike Giant, Aseph, 3rdi, Steve Tipton, Dino Bowen, Kasey Mahoney, Ducky, Ana Gonzalez, Germizm, BENONE, Alicia Rojas, Alisa King, Charley Reynoso, Bigboy, Heidi Hernandez, Kenos One, Edward Velasquez, FRED ONE, KRAY, DAMET, VGML, Jess Johnson, Nick Macaulay, Trixie’s Pinatas, and Ed Gutter…
The show opened to huge crowds being that the November Art Walk coincided with the Noche de Altares street festival taking place a few blocks away. Judging by the reactions of the crowd, “Bringing Out The Dead” art show accomplished what it set out to do, to be a memoriable part of the day’s experience. Be on the lookout for next year’s art show – we hope it’ll keep growing in impact.
