The First Thursday Artwalk Tour is different every month – new artists in town, galleries with rotating exhibits, and artists that have been part of the Arts District for years. Each month the tour lasts about one hour and visits several different artists and galleries, providing an overview and introduction to San Pedro’s lively Arts District. Visitors enjoy interacting with the artists and curators, learning about the artists’ techniques and inspiration.

The tour begins at 6:30 in the San Pedro Chamber Board Room Gallery. Now showing in the Chamber Gallery: Nancy Webber, Works on Paper. Webber is concerned with ways of seeing. Quoting Oscar Wilde, "Things are because we see them, and what we see, and how we see it, depends on the arts that have influenced us." Nancy Webber is the author of Life Imitates Art, a collection of her works.The exhibition runs through December. Studio 345 is owned by Pat Woolley and Gloria Lee. Both are mixed media artists, with very different styles. In these rather unsettled times, Pat Woolley has chosen to show a series called Bearly Impressions to bring a smile to our faces. The watercolor paintings are exact replicas of famous art work. She tried to capture the feeling the original painter portrayed, but using bears as models. Gloria Lee is a master of mixed media, using layers, collage, monoprint, watercolors, and pastels.

Menduiña Schneider Art Gallery Art Gallery features two exhibitions. Uruguayan artist Silvia Ibanez's work is titled “Severed Bodies”. Patricia Civico's Art Studio from Argentina has brought the art of 22 of her students.

Patricia Silva Ibanez’ work sends you spiraling down into an often times unknown world, not only because is a social taboo but also due to the tacit acceptance in our society, a world many times condemned, but mostly overlooked with a sad complicity for the powers to be. The images that comprise the show, some just a mute scream, others simply raw violence and anger are but the hand and the blade that destroy everything. There are, perhaps, the tatters of the soul that dwells in the gutter while dreaming of the stars. Art used this way is not a tool but an end, and end where if one is to remember Dostoyevsky and his “Crime & Punishment,” one will be submerged in a hellish world till one achieves redemption. Every single one of Patricia’s brushstrokes pushes us closer to that purity that was supposed to remain untouched. Text by by Jorge Schneider, Author "Lucas an Adventure of Spirit"

At Gallery 381, Dina Appel’s show “We are all Cecil” shows her passion - painting animals of all types, including wildlife, farm and domestic animals, insects, and marine life. The show’s title refers to Cecil, the lion that was shot and killed in Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park. She is an outspoken advocate for animal rights and conservation devoted to using her artistic abilities to help animals and help people to understand and have empathy for the non-human animals that share our world. A donation will be made to animal rights organizations with the sale of each painting. The artist will be present and painting on location this month.

Enjoy the closing reception for John Stinson's photography exhibition, Au Naturele Troix at The San Pedro Convention and Visitors Bureau (225 W. 6th St.) where John Stinson of the San Pedro Art Association, will be presenting a show of his B&W photography titled "Au Naturale Troix".
