Our monthly gallery event, Art on the Vine presents “From Our Eyes to Yours,” a photography show featuring all black and white photos. Several local photographers are participating, and a special exhibition of photographs from the late James Arthur Morris, whom the evening will be dedicated to.
Arthur Morris was a pillar of the Downey community, having been a leader and philanthropist who’s fingerprints are on many Downey institutions, such as the Downey Regional Medical Center, Downey Savings & Loan, Downey Symphony, Downey Civic Light Opera, Rotary Club, and more. He owned a photography studio on Firestone Blvd to feed his habit, even though his background was as a radiologist and hospital administrator. He studied with photography luminaries such as Ansel Adams.
The participating photographers are Joan Anderson, Roberto Chavez, Carolina Del Toro, Don Elkins, Anthony Giron, Pam Lane, Alex Linares, Leopoldo Pena and Luis Sanchez. Carolina Del Toro, one of the DAC’s founding members, curated the show.
Mari’s Wine Bar is at 8222 Firestone Blvd, Downey, CA across from Porto’s Bakery. The event is Saturday October 6th, 7PM to Midnight. Look for live music, raffles of original artwork, food, great beer and wine, as well as a chance to get out with the community. (21+)
