Eight artists and several musicians came together for the opening reception of The Magical Rainbow Pony Show. The exhibit features paintings, videos and installation work that are as interesting as they are colorful.

As soon as you enter the gallery space the color explosion creates an aesthetic that’s difficult to ignore. Upon inspection of the work on the walls it becomes clear that each artist took the theme of the show and created their own unique vision.

The eight artists are Nancy Chan, Walt Gorecki, Eri Hawkins, Chihiro Higaki, Mike Poll, Allison Smith, Paul Solis and Jasper Wong. The show is a collaboration between Los Angeles and Bay Area artists. The closing reception will be on Aug. 9 at 8 p.m. and will feature music by DJ Jim Smith, Don Hellions, Magic Johnson and comedy by Dave Sirus.
