Quarterly Ontario Art Walk features variety

The Ontario Art Walk at the Emporia Arts District in downtown Ontario Saturday offered artists the chance to showcase and sell their creations. 

Artists at the evening event were happy to share. 

“It’s a big step for me,” said Sharon Robles, one of the artists. “I’m an only-person business… so having the chance to meet people to make my art available is big for me.” 

 Other artists agreed.

“I live here, so it means a lot to me,” said digital artist Phillip Quick. “I always wanted an art community.” 

Quick said that street art, comic books, music and animation are a big part of his craft. 

He said animation inspires him, and he sees street art as an inspiration for his creations. 

Other artists discussed their inspiration.

“It’s inspired by my brother who makes things from… nature, rocks and crystals,” said Hajar Alexandria, who displayed some of the jewelry she made at the event Saturday.

“It’s very welcoming and a welcoming community that I’m so privileged to be a part of,” said painter Jessica Lepe, who also displayed her work Saturday. 

This quarterly event is held the third Saturday of the month in February, May, August, and November.

Event sponsors included the Ontario Museum of History and Art, the Downtown Ontario Improvement Association and the Chaffey Community Museum of Art.
