It seems everyone knows him. Or at least knows of him.
This month the eccentric local San Diego artist turns curator as he takes over the very handsome gallery space in Escondido know as Gallery 262-B. His first show, Impending Anarchy, opened Saturday with a very successful turn out.
Impending Anarchy features artists: Brenda Salamone, Petey Deitz, Brittany Heskett, Anna Zappoli, Chris Vannoy, Bettina Heinz, Wendy Wilson- Gibson, Guy Lombardo, Dan Adams, Philip Petrie, David Beck- Brown, Jon Loren Bazan, Marsha Boston, Renetta Happe’, Francesca Lombardo, Ellen Deiter.
There's a new show in the works for July's Art Walk (July 10th).
"I'm all about change. Me and Obama," Lombardo told me.
I was impressed by the number of people out for the monthly art walk, and the audience was very engaged with the work on the walls. The event had a decidedly different feel from gallery openings and art walks in San Diego.
I can't wait to see what Guy Lombardo does next month.
