In the spirit of OB that was so strong Wednesday night at the Ocean Beach Planning Board meeting — come on out to Celeste Byers’ Gallery Opening tonight, Friday, August 4th at Culture Brewing Co. at 4845 Newport Avenue.  The event will be 5 – 10 pm.

Celeste was born and raised in OB.  She has several murals in OB — the mural on the south-facing wall of Chris’ Liquor, the mural on the west-facing wall at Teter, the shop front of Often Wander at Noon, and she is finishing up her third local mural which she has been working on this week between Sunset Cliffs and Cable less than a block from Culture.

Her resume of published and commissioned work is extensive and she has truly become a name recognized by many nation wide and throughout the world.

Some of Celeste’s remarkable story was shared previously in these articles: here and here.

She will be showing a selection of her drawings and paintings from the past 5 years.  There will also be pop-ups by Little Dame Shop and Teros Gallery.  She will have new and old prints for sale and original art.

With the show right across from the old antique mall, and the new potential Target Express — you can get a real visual of that block of Newport from Culture.  And for those who were at the meeting on Wednesday night — Celeste was standing with the protesters in the back of the room who were holding signs saying “No to Target.”

The photos feautured here are some of Celeste’s PangeaSeed Project murals. The gray whale mural is in Encinitas. “Vanishing Tuna” was painted at Kaaboo Del Mar in 2015. And the penguin mural is in Napier, New Zealand.
