The Bird Show

The Art of Viridiana Quiroz
On display March 16 - April 28, 2018
Artist's reception March 24, 2018 from 2-5pm

Viridiana Quiroz, also known as Viri, is The Empty Space gallery’s youngest artist to have a solo exhibit. Viri is 9 years old and is a Bakersfield native. She is a 4th grade student at Shirley Lane Elementary, who plays the saxophone and is a red belt in Tae Kwon Do.

Viri started drawing from a young age, mostly pictures about her family, friends, and pets. Viridiana was introduced to art in second grade when her class studied Frida Kahlo’s life and work. Viri first explored painting with a portrait of Frida and found art to be very satisfying. Viridiana enjoys her work, and the combination of bright colors. She has participated in Via Arte and Latination art exhibit.

The exhibit will feature ten all new original acrylic works. All artwork will be for sale, including smaller prints of each piece.

The Empty Space Gallery is proud to have such a young artist featured in the gallery, and works hard at helping aspiring artists of all ages.

Join us for a reception honoring our artist on March 24, 2018 from 2-5pm. Enjoy refreshments, browse the art, and have a chance to speak with the artist about her colorful works.

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

The Empty Space Gallery is proud to announce its new secondary gallery located in Eureka! Restaurant, 10520 Stockdale Hwy, Bakersfield, CA 93311.

This new mini gallery will feature an array of different artists throughout the year along with a portfolio of their small and mid-sized works of art.

Our current artist is Ashleymarie Sey Lively. Ashleymarie creates art with a splash of whimsy and wonder. Born and raised native to Bakersfield, her inspiration comes from ocean life, tiki culture, fantasy, books, and movies. She works in various mediums, but recently changed to working with inks and painting on wood. This special selected collection is full of subjects that make you want to smile and hug.

All items in the gallery are available for purchase at the restaurant with 100% of the proceeds going to The Empty Space, a 501(c)3 non-profit and the local artist.

Stop by Eureka!, grab a burger, and check out the art in the brand new Empty Space Gallery at Eureka!


The Empty Space invites artists to submit proposals for an exhibition of contemporary art in our 1000 sq ft space.  Our gallery gives new and emerging artists as well as seasoned veterans the opportunity to display their works in a professional gallery atmosphere. Portfolios can be submitted electronically or appointments can be made with gallery director, Jesus Fidel at
