Art Walk returns in June

The fifth Claremont Art Walk of 2022 will take place this Saturday from 6-9 p.m. The complete program is as follows:

  • Making its Art Walk debut, the Crescent Tree Corp, located at 206 W. Bonita Ave., Suite #G (at Harvard Square) will feature T. Pacini’s exhibition, “Liquid Visions,” an “abstract photograph of atmospheric compositions of liquid, light and reflection,” a press release said.
  • Bunny Gunner, 230 W. Bonita Ave., will present Susan Ruiz’s exhibit, “Our Stories,” which features her works in encaustic and mixed media.
  • At The Button Box museum, located in the walkway outside Bunny Gunner, Anne Seltzer’s “Studio Buttons” will be on display for all to enjoy during and after the art walk. Seltzer used a variety of materials to create his own studio knobs. The exhibition will be open 24/7 after the Art Walk.
  • Inside Studio C, 260 W. Bonita Ave., Elizabeth Carr’s exhibit, “Finding Acceptance,” will be on view. Carr, who has been a painter for nearly 30 years and a gallery owner for six, used paint and collage to create the mixed media works featured. Refreshments will be served.
    • “This show is about finding a balance. Finding a way to create symmetry out of the chaos of torn and cut paper and paint,” a press release read. “Elizabeth brings together things that obviously don’t belong together and makes them feel like they belong. To find acceptance is to belong somewhere you don’t necessarily feel comfortable.
  • At the Claremont Chamber of Commerce, 205 Yale Ave., Elisa Arancibia’s exhibit, “Chasing the light, a Plein Air Painter Journey,” will be on view. The Peruvian painter discovered her passion for art at an early age and studied at the Art Museum of Lima in Peru.
    • Elisa has resided in California since 2001 and loves the beauty of California’s landscapes and seascapes. In 2013, Elisa embarked on a mission to fulfill her dream of becoming a better oil painter and hone her skills as a plein air painter by joining Plein Air Artists of Riverside, a group of the Riverside Art Museum. Later she founded the Inland Empire Plein Air Painters Society and studied with several renowned painters including Kevin McPherson, Karen Werner, Richard Robinson, Jane Hunt and Robert Hagan.
  • Square I, 110 Harvard Ave., will feature artist Jenny Shaw’s exhibition, The Dancer Series.
  • Sonja Stump Photography, 135 W. First St., will feature exhibitions by four distinct female artists: “Face of a Woman” by Arzu Kastal, “Waves and Wonders Art” by Tracy Trammell Giannos, “About Face” by Quincey Grace and ” The Silk Road.”
  • Ahmad Shariff Art Gallery, 107 Harvard Ave., will present his themed exhibition, “Summer Splash,” featuring nine artists, including Elisa Arancibia, Paul Kiilaus, Jenny Anne Wright, David Guerrero, Sandy Garcia, Jennifer Rose, Ahmad Shariff, Tracy Trammel and Arzo.
    • “Come and enjoy refreshing drinks, appetizers and summer on canvas brought to you by our creative artists,” reads a press release. “A summertime oasis that brings the season to life through the lens of the best of Claremont.”
  • The Claremont Lewis Museum of Art, 200 W. First St., in the Depot, will continue its inaugural exhibit since its expansion, “Claremont Collects: Art, Creativity, Community.” The exhibit showcases highlights from the museum’s permanent collection, showcasing works by area artists from the 1930s through today, and is generously sponsored by Gould Asset Management LLC.
  • The Claremont Forum Bookstore and Gallery, 586 W. First St., will feature Abby Ramirez, Elizabeth Marcel and Doug Earley.
    • Ramirez, photographer, will present his exhibition, “Reversed Reflection”, which explores the relationship between the photographer and the photographed. Marcel, an artist, will exhibit hand-painted jackets during Artwalk. Earley, jazz saxophonist, will perform from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
