  • 'Kulture' is culture, however you spell it

    'Kulture' is culture, however you spell it
    Curtains came down on the Munsters in 1966 — long before I was born. So imagine my surprise Friday when I noticed the Munster Koach trundling down Main Street with a full-throated rumble. The 18-foot vehicle sported a brass radiator and fenders,...
  • Through a glass, backward

    Through a glass, backward
    From a distance, they appear to be expressionist paintings of musicians and marine life. But upon closer inspection, light reflects off the dual-pane window and exposes a crisp image — looking as if it were a print on glossy paper. Huntington...
  • Court fight has happy ending

     Court fight has happy ending
    After settling a lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister Co., Robb Havassy ended up with 365 surfboards. Ever since then, he's set out to diminish that number. On Thursday, he'll be raffling off 150 of the boards in Huntington Beach. Sixteen...
  • Ready for the spotlight

    Ready for the spotlight
    Broken surfboards, packaging material, styrofoam, paints, thinners and resin. These are just a few ingredients in Janessa Bookout's "green" sculptures. Although the 31-year-old Huntington Beach resident has a background in traditional fine art, she is...
  • Turning junk into art

    Turning junk into art
    The artist traced her giant baby doll concept back to when she cleared out her 10-year-old son's room of toys he no longer touched. "I had just been stashing things in his room," Joyce Dallal said, describing the size of her now 13-year-old son's past...
  • On Theater: Two give all to local theaters

    While most theater practitioners gravitate from show to show, venue to venue, a few may be found putting in years of artistic labor on behalf of one specific producing organization. Two such individuals are spotlighted this week. The Costa Mesa...
  • Art á la carte

    Art á la carte
    A street-level window showcasing a solitary painting. This is the scene that greets people who pass Current, Innocean USA's recently christened art gallery, in downtown Huntington Beach. "We had an internal contest asking our employees to submit names...
  • Former curator takes in a new view

    Former curator takes in a new view
    Darlene DeAngelo has traveled many places over the last dozen years: Cuba, Vietnam, Europe and wherever the freeway would take her during her impassioned 12-hour workdays. Now, the former curator of the Huntington Beach Art Center is embarking on a...
  • From North Korea to Main Street

    From North Korea to Main Street
    Soon after the tragic events of 9/11, artist Gary Simpson was inspired to create a large conceptual piece combining cement with soil from every member state of the United Nations. He called the project "Common Ground 191." He relied on volunteers and...
  • In the Pipeline: Vegan vandalism not kosher

    In the Pipeline: Vegan vandalism not kosher
    I wrote about a mural in this column two years ago. It covered a large liquor store wall facing the McDonald's near the intersection of Edinger Avenue and Edwards Street, and it depicted all the most iconic McDonald's characters, from Ronald to Grimace to...
  • City Lights: Art didn't deserve butchering

    City Lights: Art didn't deserve butchering
    Two of my greatest passions had a nasty scuffle recently in Huntington Beach. Animal rights won on the street, while artist rights scored a knockout in the media. At times like these, it smarts to be in the middle. For those who missed Chris Epting's...
  • You can't miss it now

    You can't miss it now
    Motorists heading to the upcoming 45th annual Sunset Beach Art Festival should spot the post office. The local landmark at 16885 Pacific Coast Hwy. is a block from the site of the festival, which will happen during the Mother's Day weekend. Out-of-...
