Art Walk | Rey Mora

Rey Mora - HummingbirdIn movement there is life, growth, and evolution. Things that do not move – die. For Rey Mora, his artwork represents a lifting and moving of the spirit. This exhibition will highlight his Colibrí Collection with images of the hummingbird – a tiny, but mighty, creature in our environment that exemplifies movement.

A movement leads to progress, advancement, and improvement. Groups that do not move together – end. By integrating culturally relevant depictions and universal mathematical symbols into his art, Rey Mora expresses the ideal that we are all connected as we move through life on this planet.

LOFTon2nd is proud to host artist Rey Mora for two special evenings in June. Events are free and open to the public.

We Journey (3rd Annual)

We Journey - LOFTon2nd Art Walk PomonaLOFTon2nd is proud to celebrate the innovation, art and strength of Pan Africans past, present and future. For the third year, we present a very special show, “We Journey”.

Los Angeles resident artist, Shamala Bennu Auset, was catapulted into art, color, forms, and ancestral reverence. Exploring a unique narrative, her three-dimensional, textured use of acrylic, called scultpaint, honors the strength of African peoples, both in Africa and in the Diaspora, sharing not merely a common history, but a common journey.

Join us and about 30 other galleries for 2nd Saturday Art Walk. Art for sale, food, craft vendors, music and even a pretty cool late night buzz. Whether you’re with your special Valentine or just hanging with your anti-Valentine friends…it’s a great night out. Check out http://downtownpomona.org/
