February/March 2019 Arts Visalia Press Release
Kirk Cruz Exhibition and Opening Reception at Arts Visalia
In February 2019, Arts Visalia's gallery will be filled with the work of Kirk Cruz. His Sharpie in Light artwork depicts his interest and bold process in color theory and the way light plays a role in art, using Sharpie markers. His interest in color theory led him to only using the colored markers, even to depict black in his artwork.
Kirk Cruz was born in Fresno and has studied painting and drawing for over 25 years. His inspiration comes from his father, Gilbert Cruz, who encouraged him to continue the pursuit of the arts in his youth. He has studied oil, acrylic, pastels and pencil, which have helped him in his color ink technique, most have described as comparison to an oil painting.
Kirk Cruz's exhibition will be displayed January 30 through February 22, 2019 with an opening reception on First Friday, February 1, 2019 from 6-8 p.m. The exhibition is sponsored in part by Jack & Charlie's, the Vintage Press Restaurante, and the Southern Pacific Depot Restaurant.
