The Empty Space Gallery Presents



a spooky exhibition featuring various artists

On Display July 5 - September 7
Artists Opening & Reception: July 20 from 2-5PM

On July 5, 2019, The Empty Space Gallery opens an exhibition to the public featuring monster themed art created by various artists. 

MONSTERS was chosen to coincide with The Empty Space’s mainstage production She Kills Monsters

“She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans, a young woman grieving for her deceased sister. The Evans sisters never were especially close, but after Tilly’s death Agnes resolves a notebook containing a game scenario created by her sister. She discovers that Tilly was well-known Dungeons and Dragons player, and that she was passionate about online fantasy gaming. In order to unlock more secrets about her mysterious young sibling, Agnes recruits a “dungeon master” named Chuck to help her understand and grieve Tilly. Chock-full of supermodel elves, dominatrix warrior women, and nasty ogres, She Kills Monsters is a surprisingly sweet tale of friendship, loss, and acceptance.”  -Qui Nguyen

Although this art exhibit doesn’t have a story-line, we asked numerous artists to submit their best portraits of monsters to set a pre-show feeling to prepare you for the theatre’s wonderful production.  The exhibit features new and original monsters as well as iconic monsters created by the artists with their own original take on them. This collection of works runs July 5 through Sept 7, 2019.

Please join us in celebration of our new exhibit on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 2-5pm at The Empty Space Gallery, located at 706 Oak St., Bakersfield, CA 93304. The Empty Space Gallery will set the mood with spooky themed treats and beverages.  As always, our reception is free to attend and all refreshments are complementary.
