I couldn’t have seen two more polar opposite shows in one weekend if I had tried! Falling at Fresno Pacific, while amazing, was very serious (review also up tonight).

If you have ever seen MacBeth on stage, I guarantee you that haven’t seen a production like the one currently on stage at the College of the Sequoias in Visalia. This is a multimedia production unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

The COS Art Department has a rich history of talented students. The chance to showcase their talent where they first got their start, does not only benefit the artist themselves but also the current COS students and public. Marty Azevedo’s inspiring large-scale prints with mixed media elements graces the walls of the COS Art Gallery for the last exhibition of the Fall 2014 semester in “We Will Live Forever!” The show will run from October 28 through November 21 with an opening reception on Thursday, October 30 from 5-7 p.m. in the COS Art Gallery.

The COS Art Gallery is proud to feature the work of Crystal Galindo for our first show of the spring 2014 semester! The exhibition, “Multifacetica: Un Cambio de Paradigma,” which translates to Multifaceted: A Paradigm Shift, features large and vibrant paintings that are full of life. Galindo’s work focuses on realistic portraiture combined with an assortment of patterns, landscapes and iconic symbols that tell the story of each person being portrayed.
