Creativity erupted everywhere during the opening of the "Awesome" exhibit at Hurley's )( Space Gallery.
The June 11 event included a brightly colored, smoke-emitting, volcano, which, of course, also functioned as a skate ramp.
Four artists from the Pacific Northwest — Martin Ontiveros, Skinner Davis, Justin Scrappers Morrison, and Brandon Bwana Spoons — came together for the collaborative art show that celebrated color, people, animals and the viewer with interactive elements.
Artist C.R. Stecyk III was also in attendance along with Hurley resident artist Dalek, Hurley Director of Art Jason Maloney and Hurley Vice President of Art & Design Scott Patt.
"Awesome" will be on display until July 15 at the )( Space Gallery, 1945 Placentia Ave., Costa Mesa.
