This exhibit features the art of local artist Christopher Darga. After working as an actor and sculptor in Los Angeles, Christopher picked up paints again in 2013, due to an inspirational gift from his wife. It was a set of instructional DVDs by the Santa Clarita painter Morgan Weistling. Christopher subsequently immersed himself into the world of oil painting.
