  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Painting at the minimum

    Painting at the minimum
    Dave Reynolds gave his new exhibit at the International Surfing Museum the title "Minimal Surf." An alternate name for it, which admittedly sounds like a spice or a cologne, could be "Essence of Surfer." Reynolds, the museum's exhibits director,...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • One-woman act teems with voices

    One-woman act teems with voices
    On Friday, enter Bethany Owen's show at your own risk. She plans to change her garments — on stage. Subscribing to the adage that clothes — and hair — make the girl, the Huntington Beach resident will swap dresses, shirts and...
  • Artist really connects with his work

    Artist really connects with his work
    The picture that Yatzie Dee took down from the wall looked, to an uninformed eye, like a depiction of a myth or a tribal memory — certainly nothing that reflected life in modern Southern California. But as Dee spoke in his soft, high voice, the...
  • 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...
  • '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,...
