By Irvine Indy Staff –
Two unique art exhibits are available for viewing now through March 7 at the Irvine Fine Arts Center, located inside Heritage Community Park on Yale Ave.
The first exhibit, From Here to There: A Time Machine, is a collaborative effort that taps the talents Michael Chang and Susan Lin. You’ll be taken back when you enter Gallery 1 – back in time. The works take a deep dive into ancestry, cultural time, and the fragile memory. The exhibit occupies all of Gallery 1 of the Irvine Fine Arts Center. Together the artists explore the pairing of technologies of the past with videos and images that serve as anecdotes about the human desire and longing for “home” and the conflict that exists between familial as well as cultural myths and realities.
A Trace is Not a Map fills the Main Gallery as well as Gallery 2. The works are a mix of photography, painting, video, and sculpture –– all of which explore the complexity of community in its familial, geographic, and imagined narratives and forms. Exhibiting artists include Adriana Baltazar, William Camargo, Daniela Delgadillo Garcia, and Albert Lopez Jr. This exhibit portrays the relationship between hope and loss, joy and struggle, and illusion and disillusionment.
Also on display are items for purchase, including ceramic art and jewelry.
Visit the exhibitions Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Exhibitions and parking are free. The Irvine Fine Arts Center is located inside Heritage Community Park at 14321 Yale Ave. For more information, visit irvinefinearts.org or call 949-724-6880.
