Named after an open air market in Vietnam, Songs of the Green Bird is a photographic series by local artist Johnny Nguyen, shown at the The Hill Street Country Club. The organization is a non-profit that embarks to cultivate art and culture in the surrounding communities. They previously held pop up art shows before finding their permanent home in Oceanside. Nguyen’s exhibit inaugurated the new gallery with an opening reception held last Saturday on the 18th. You can read the write up on North County Food.
My favorite part of the blog post (besides the drool-worthy food porn) captures the community-driven nature of The Hill Street Country Club and the artist:
While setting up a group of children walked in from a church event across the way to ask what we were doing. Johnny let them in to look at the photos and talked to them about art.
His series will be at the gallery until February 25th. 212D Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA.
