Last night marked the opening event for Hillstreet Country Club’s new Art Gallery located at 212D Artist Alley Oceanside, CA. Hillstreet Country Club is a non-profit art organization whose goal is to promote art and artists in Oceanside. They have been doing pop up art events throughout North County over the last year and last night finally opened their permanent home in Artist Alley.
The opening was a huge success with over 150 people attending. Here are some pictures of the over all event.
Pre-event guests ~ While setting up a group of children walked in from a church event across the way to ask what we were doing. Johnny let them in to look at the photos and talked to them about art. This actually really encapsulates what all of this is about.
Artist Johnny Nguyen making sure everything is right.
My two favorite pieces.
The event underway
Not your normal catering spread. Chef Davin Waite of Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub brought it with local yellow tail nigiri, tuna as well as vegetarian ceviche, and yellow tail collar.

Booze Brothers ~ Ol’ Grandaddies IPA
Everyone loves chocolate ~ Chef Bo Bonham of The Truffle Trike.
Again this was a knock out event and I personally think a very important one for art, food, and culture in Oceanside.
