Tonight is your last chance to see artwork by Tony Auricchio at the Old Post Office Pavilion in El Centro. The show was billed as an "amateur art display," but Tony sold one of his paintings during the show and is no longer considered an amateur. More power to him.
The next installation at the OPOP will be a gathering of art students of Mary Helen Hitt. The show will open Monday and a free public reception will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Hitt is truly a talented artist and has run a studio in Brawley since 1960. The special tribute is an effort of love by more than a dozen of her current and former students.
At the Imperial Valley College art gallery, be sure to visit the second annual Juried Student Art Exhibition. Featured artists are Armando Rascon, whose bi-national mural project is entering its final stages along the border with Mexicali.
