The Empty Space Gallery Presents

WONDERLAND event%2Fmenu.png


a group exhibit featuring mushroom art

In this group show, multiple artists were asked to create works of art depicting ‘mushrooms.’ This exhibit was created to accompany Tonicism’s production of “Alice in Wonderland.” Our goal was to turn the art gallery at The Empty Space into a forest of dreams.

Participating artists include: Jorge Guillen, Alisyn Palla, Ashleymarie Sey Lively, Kristina Saldaa, Claire Rock, Jesus Fidel, Jolie Roberson, Brian Purcell, Victoria Lusk, Alex Ortiz, John Buford, Courtney Johnson, and Michelle Guerrero.

This exhibit will be on display from August 3 through September 8, 2018. Please join us to meet the artists and to view and purchase the art on August 25, from 2pm to 5pm at our artist reception. The Empty Space will be providing music and refreshments.

All works are for sale, and admission to the exhibit is free.

The Empty Space is located at 706 Oak St. Bakersfield, CA 93304.

Gabrielle Steiger


On display June 1 - August 31, 2018

Gabrielle “Gabbi” Steiger is a freelance illustrator originating from Bakersfield, California. She recently graduated from California State University of Northridge with a BFA in Animation, and has been building herself up as an independent business since then. Her goal is for art to be her career! She runs her own online shop where she sells stickers, prints, buttons, and more with her original illustrations, and is in the process of creating original self-published comics and zines for the public to enjoy. You can probably find her at random coffee shops drawing people, and doing odd jobs like pet portraits or screen printing shirts.

Stop in at Eureka for lunch, dinner, or Saturday brunch and check out Gabbi’s collection of small works created specially for Eureka Gallery!

Eureka is located at 10520 Stockdale Highway, Bakersfield, CA 93311
