Distinction Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening reception of "Resilient Edges", a solo show by Escondido beloeved artist Kelly Vivanco. Vivanco has become one of the most sought after and collected artists with a global collection base and following.

Vivanco, a native to Southern California, earned her BFA from Laguna College of Art and Design. She works with a variety of media to create art with whimsy, nostalgia and a sense of child-like wonder.

Vivanco draws from the real and imagined world to populate her works with a host of playful and curious characters. She takes inspiration from vintage photographs, children's literature and the oddness of her dreams. Shehas exhibited in solo and group shows across the U.S. including California Center for the Arts Museum, The Portsmouth Museum of Art, Thinkspace, SURU, Gallery 1988, Subtext, Rotofugi, Flatcolor, 323 East, London Miles, Art Basel and Orange County Center for Contemporary Arts. Kelly Vivanco's art is available for sale and is collected in the U.S. and abroad; and her daily comic, Patches, has a world-wide following. She currently resides in Escondido, California.

Vivanco has created 20 brand new whimsical paintings for the exhibition, many which were custom framed. The opening reception with the artist, open studios, live music, and drinks available from Last Spot will be held on Saturday May 14, from 6-10pm.

The exhibition will run from May 14 - June 4.
