Featured artworks and themes are distinct and vast with each artists drawing upon their own personal aesthetics. The art featured will delight and intrigue viewers from the surreal and darling worlds by May Ann Licudine aka MALL, to the patterned and atmospheric painting by Cielo Oreste. Also featured is established illustrator Chris Appelhans, French artist Adolie Day, Fashion Illustrator Laura Laine, the highly ornate paintings of Yellena, installation and mixed media artist Edith Abeyta, and academic painter Leonardo Villasenor.CATALYST ARTISTS:

Opening the same night is DREAMS TO REALITY. Curated by artist David Jien, Dreams to Reality began as a desire to help a friend in need. Friends and artists have united together to do what they do best - art, and in turn are donating their proceeds to this admirable cause. Artists include those who are quickly making a name for themselves like Ekundayo, Mike Alvarez, and Andrew Hem whose works have been showing at galleries throughout Los Angeles and the USA. Other featured artists include Alvaro Sanz, Swank, Devin Strother, Leo Eguiarte, Wayne Johnson, Julienne Hsu, Alisa Yang, Reinier Gamboa, and Eric Skotness.DREAMS TO REALITY ARTISTS:
