Drawn to be Bad

MartinezVillain

What would a hero be if not for their villains? Unfortunately a villains fate is usually the same. They do not get their “happy ending” and are left without a glorious victory. But on this night, at East End Studio Gallery, the villains will have their time to shine! Join us for our 3rd annual Animation show with art inspired by the devilishly twisted minds of animated villains! 

D.J. Twinkle Toes will get your villainous hearts moving, while we serve a wicked witches brew!

Remembering Selena Group Exhibition


Selena Invitation Small

One night only reception is Friday April 3rd 6 – 9 pm!

Selena Quintanilla-Pérez (April 16, 1971 – March 31, 1995), known by the mononym Selena, was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer. Called the Queen of Tejano music, her contributions to music and fashion made her one of the most celebrated Mexican American entertainers of the end of the 20th century as Hispanics elevated her into sainthood. She was named the “top Latin artist of the ’90s” and “Best selling Latin artist of the decade” by Billboard magazine, as well as the “Mexican equivalent” of Madonna.

EESG invites you to share how you remember Selena through art.

D.j. Twinkle-Toes Browncoat will keep you on your toes all night long!

The Art of Revolution!

Opening reception Friday March 6th 6 – 9 pm.
Closing reception Thursday March 19th 6 – 9 pm.

 

In Mexico 43 students were kidnapped and murdered. People have taken to the streets to demand change to a corrupt system, one in which the drug cartels control much of the Government.

In Hong Kong people take to the streets to demand a voice in their Government.

In America people all over the country have come together to protest the failure of grand juries to prosecute police officers that murdered unarmed black teens and adults.
All over the world people have taken to the streets to demand that their voices be heard.

The job of the artist is to reflect on the world around them to show future generations the world around us. To reflect on our thoughts, emotions and the events that make up our society today.
