“All You Can Eat” art show Apr ’15 art walk

April_art_walk_2015April 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!Travis_allen_raymond_art_painting

Boy did Mary & The Venus Pixies fill the space. Art Guevara, Jack Martinez, and Steev Moreno make up the art group MVP. They took over our gallery space in september. Glad to have them over.

“Bringing Out The Dead II” art show NOV ’13

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.gcs_flyer-01
