The show will run through 2020 and can be viewed in person by making an appointment with the Garcia Center. Call 909-888-6400. // Chris Frausto is a mixed media artist, whose work is currently on display at The Garcia Center’s gallery space. Chris Frausto uses found objects and other oddities found at thrits, estate and yard sales, incorporating them into her art. Frausto finds fun in presenting objects in another form, beyond their original intended use. Frausto’s work is also grounded in her relationship with books and sees her art being a reflection of our times: the demise of the book and the beauty of turning the pages. Watch a YouTube clip of Chris Frausto at the Garcia Center talking about her work.
