Under the Microscope: the Art of GERMS
Open to the public through October 22, 2017
Los Angeles based painter Jaime Zacarias, better known as GERMS, creates work that echoes his Chicano art heritage with infusions of LA subculture and surrealist imagery. This world premiere exhibit will chronicle Zacarias' many-tentacle career, from childhood drawings and borrowed works in prominent collections, to new, never-before-seen works created especially for this show.
Leo Fender: Life and Legacy
Clarence Leo Fender was an unassuming man who couldn't play the guitar, yet his creations inspired generations of musicians, and changed the sound of popular music. While his instruments soared, Fender spent his life in Fullerton, looking for ways to make his great creations even better. In this 10th anniversary year of the Leo Fender Gallery, we celebrate the man by taking a fresh look at his life, work and lifetime of inventiveness.
