Social Fiction
May 10-13, 2017

Camarillo, CA – The Studio Channel Islands Blackboard Gallery is pleased to present pop-up exhibit Social Fiction from May 10 – 13, 2017, with an opening reception on May 11th from 7-9 PM.

Social fiction features an installation from Kevin Hallagan, a Los Angeles based artist who has worked on art installations exhibited around the world. His art demands of its viewers an active engagement with their surroundings, and a mental consideration of its content. With ‘Nonbinary’, Kevin has created a cloud of mirrors which enables societal expectations of ‘masculinity’ and ‘femininity’, shatters them, and throws them dancing around the gallery. The combinations of ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ imagery swimming around the space are as endless as they are within the individual.

The Social Fiction is the premier art exhibition in Ventura county, showcasing pieces of thought, verve, and community. For all of those who have faced adversity in a broken system, we create with passion. We glorify the broken-hearted and rise up with the oppressed. Our paint brushes become our tools to bring attention to the most marginalized among us, and we invite you to join us in the fight. The gallery will be open May 9th-May 12th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday, May 13th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Studio Channel Islands Art Center (2222 Ventura Blvd, Camarillo, CA 93010). Join us for food, fun, and fundraising Thursday, May 11th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Artists will be present at the opening on May 11th from 7-9 PM. The Channel Islands Blackboard Gallery is located at 2222 East Ventura Blvd., Camarillo, CA 93010. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday from 11-5 PM and Saturday from 11-3 PM. For more information contact Katherine Cooksey, Gallery Director, at 805-383-1368 or at
