May 20th, 2017 5-11pm – 575 Ross St. Downtown Santa Rosa
Four years ago the former Santa Rosa Printing warehouse became an art gallery for one night only. This free exhibition with work by more than 40 artists hailing from Sonoma County to the United Kingdom was brought to life by Santa Rosa arts advocate, photographer and curator Roman D’Argenzio. All the artist donated their time, paint and creativity to the project.
With a habit of bringing pop-up art events since 2008, D’Agenzio had a three year run with a monthly art show and dance party on Third Street called Kaleidoscope. D’Argenzio now runs The Corner Store Collective a contemporary art gallery in Downtown Santa Rosa that has been presenting solo shows at their gallery from 2013 to present.
This Saturday D’Argenzio is at it again with Out Of Order 2 . After 5 months of planning and preparation a 4,000 sq foot warehouse will experience a mural exhibit takeover with “more artists, more color, new murals and more walls”. Over 45 artists from all over the Bay Area have created an art show of gigantic proportions. Look for aerosol art, fine art, wheat paste, mixed multi-media sculpture and interactive installations. This free event is open to all ages with donations greatly accepted at the entrance.

D’Argenzio has this to say about the show, “I am very excited about the cohesiveness of the overall interior and exterior. I think the outside wall (by California’s “The Lords Crew”) is something cool and vibrant that Santa Rosa desperately needed. Its great to see the actual artists of the arts community come and dedicate their time and energy on something truly for the communities viewing pleasure…one of the beautiful things to me about these particular forms of art is that unlike most art the artists choose to remain anonymous. This helps the viewer focus solely on the art itself and nothing else.”
