Join us for a day full of art and fun as Angels Gate Cultural Center’s Studio Artists open their doors to the community! The Artists-in-Classrooms and Community Class programs will demonstrate the work that happens onsite and in local schools throughout the year. In addition, our galleries will present two new exhibitions: FA4 Collective’s GANAS DE EXISTIR!, a multimedia exhibition, and Direct from the Classroom, a selection of children’s art from the Artists-in-Classrooms program.
This spring, AGCC is excited to announce two partner workshops, one in partnership with the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) in Long Beach, and the other with San Pedro based Machine Studio C.U.T.S Crew.
Please join us for art, food, music and fun.
Once again it is time to celebrate the creativity that takes place throughout the Angels Gate Cultural Center campus. Don’t miss your opportunity to visit our artists’ studios, speak with over 50 artists, see new work, and buy art directly from the artist.
Community Class Demonstrations & Workshops:
Japanese Archery and Belly Dancing performances will take place in Building H. Stop by the Print Studio (Building E) to catch a demonstration of various printmaking techniques.
Our Artist-teachers, from the Artists-in-Classrooms program, will lead an all ages workshop in Building G, where visitors can create a unique souvenir.
Artist and teacher Amber Stucke will conduct a plant drawing and sketching workshop outdoors on the AGCC grounds.
Angels Gate Cultural Center is proud to work in partnership with the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) and Machine Studio to offer two new workshops this Open Studios Day.
In partnership with MOLAA and their current exhibition Chiachio & Giannone: Celebrating Diversity, we are excited to host a fabric art workshop with the Argentinian artistic duo Chiachio & Giannone. Collaborate with these visionary artists and contribute to constructing the largest Pride Flag in the history of southern California.
In addition, we are proud to partner with Machine Studio and C.U.T.S. Crew (Clean Up The Streets) to present their Mobile Graffiti Yard. With the mission to provide safe, legal venues for underserved communities to create, share and enjoy graffiti art, AGCC visitors will create and share graffiti art here at the event.
Join us for the opening reception of FA4 Collective’s GANAS DE EXISTIR!, a multimedia exhibition featuring artworks that explore themes of identity, erasure and visibility.
