Local Galleries offer coordinated effort of Art


Stockton, CA — for the second month in a row art galleries, not-for-profit organizations, and independent artist, and businesses orchestrated art exhibits in what has become ART Splash. 

“We decided to continue the Stockton art walk independently,” noted Joy Neas, active arts promoter in Stockton.  For five years, the Stockton’s Downtown Business Alliance offered artist and residents an Art Walk; however, this year the Business Alliance opted to grant art enthusiasts an opportunity to elaborate their own plan.

Art Splash includes the County Administrative Building, Law Library, and Mexican Heritage Center and Gallery.  The two block walk had hundreds of Stockton community members and neighboring communities who walked the two block foot print.  “I like the coordination of the galleries, I never attended any of the local art exhibits before,” said Michael Guerrero as he was entering the Tide Water Gallery’s exhibit at the County Administration Building.

“We had a good crowd,” noted Carlos Contreras one of four artist exhibiting at Mexican Heritage Center and Gallery in an exhibit titled “Tres y Una Mas” (Three and One More).  Contreras observed that, “there were a lot of new faces visiting.”

The Art Splash collaborative has scheduled exhibits every second Friday downtown at the three galleries the County Administration Building, the Law Library, and the Mexican Heritage Center and Gallery.
