New artists will exhibit their work at the Nov. 21 Downtown Huntington Beach Art Walk.
Cristina Hoyos, a postmodern Surrealist artist from Colombia, will have her work on display, according to event manager Mary Ann Senske.
Hoyos explores the theme of "Witness" by using the image of a mysterious eye in the sky that appears in many of her paintings, collages and drawings, Senske said by email.
InnOcean will feature a specially commissioned work by artist Josh Agle, known as Shag, and the Huntington Beach Art Center is presenting "The Cylinder, the Sphere, the Cone," an exhibition by artists Pat Warner, Gary Simpson and Lana Shuttleworth.
The art walk takes place from 6 to 9 p.m.
