Angelina Villalobos, 5-9pm

An anxious and withdrawn child, Villalobos found escape in books and art. These activities allowed her “to be safely left alone.” Her mom would sit her down at the kitchen table with tempera paint and butcher paper while she cleaned and cooked. Later, she found a creative outlet in sketching, and noted the low cost point of the medium, recommending it to anyone interested in creating art. “It’s a great way to spend time with yourself,” she said.

Hails Yes! Art

My purpose for doing and showing my art is to push past the boundaries and limitations my own brain has pushed onto me. I allowed cultural conditioning, standardized testing, and everyone around me afraid to follow their dreams stop me from following mine. I no longer fear chasing happiness or telling everyone around me to go for theirs. Love always.

Special artist note! “This is my first art show! I feel so lucky to be involved in the community I live and work. And I have been welcomed with open arms and am SO GRATEFUL for you all!”
