Distinction Gallery Presents: "Pastime" New works by  Kelly Vivanco

Kelly's exhibition will run from May 9 through June 6, 2020.

Online only exhibition featuring small scale paintings with custom frames crafted by Kelly’s husband, Peter Hillier.

About the artist: Kelly Vivanco, a native to Southern California, earned her BFA from Laguna College of Art and Design. She works with a variety of media to create art with whimsy, nostalgia and a sense of child-like wonder.  

Vivanco draws from the real and imagined world to populate her works with a host of playful and curious characters. She takes inspiration from vintage photographs, children's literature and the oddness of her dreams. Vivanco has exhibited in solo and group shows across the U.S. including California Center for the Arts Museum, The Portsmouth Museum of Art, Thinkspace, SURU, Gallery 1988, Subtext, Rotofugi, Flatcolor, 323 East, London Miles, Art Basel and Orange County Center for Contemporary Arts. Her work is collected in the U.S. and abroad; and her daily comic, Patches, has a world-wide following. She currently resides in Escondido, California.

Distinction Gallery was created in 2004 to give beginning and established collectors a venue to purchase high-quality, cutting edge artwork. Distinction has hosted over 160 exhibitions since its inception featuring emerging, mid-career and veteran professional artists. Distinction's artwork is available for purchase online to clients around the world, and most of our artists are available for commissions. In order to further expand offerings to the community, Distinction converted part of their location to ArtHatch, a non profit organization.

ArtHatch is a 7,000 square foot building which houses the front gallery: exhibitions changing monthly, "The Alley", featuring over a dozen local artists, "Micro Gallery" - a mini gallery featuring 8 x 8 inch and smaller artworks, the teen studio featuring artwork by 15+ teen artists, 17 artist studios, ranging in size from 150 to 800 square feet, featuring the work of over 20 local artists, ArtHatch Escape Rooms, and coming soon - "The Last Spot" - a Wine, Kombucha, Craft Beer, Mocktail Art Lounge coming soon.

The Last Spot was created in the last possible spot to fit another business inside of Distinction Gallery/ArtHatch.  The Owner always loves the bustling activity inside the space and felt the only thing truly missing was an Art Bar.  Last Spot is a creative space designed with visual art at its core including sculpture, 2D wall art, and a large scale media wall/lighting display designed to serve as a visual feast during your visit.Last Spot is proud to feature local wineries, local craft brews, hard kombucha, and custom mocktails created to satisfy both non drinkers and designated drivers.While we do not serve food on site you are welcome to bring your own or order from one of our many neighbors.
