Featuring Artists Aaron Burks & Chris Thompson

November 5 at 11:00 am November 30 at 4:00 pm

This Veterans’ Art Exhibition featuring Aaron Burks & Chris Thompson celebrates the artwork of our local Veterans!

Aaron Burks has embarked on a lengthy journey of meeting Pearl Harbor Survivors and painting them as their were in service and as they are in present-day. Titled “Sleeping Giants”, Burks has been hard at work since pre-pandemic to meet and document the story of the survivors. Burks himself is an Army & Navy Veteran who began his career in art after leaving the service.

Chris Thompson is a master Ceramist & mentor. Thompson created the 1000 Bowls to Feed the Hungry which amassed 1,050 bowls and grossed about $12,000 that will be donated to Loaves and Fishes, Senior Gleaners and Meals on Wheels. Thompson is an Air Force Veteran and Sacramento State Alumnus.

Both Artists will be showing their work at The Gallery at Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture on 624 E Street in Marysville. The exhibition will be available to view from November 5-30; Tuesday through Friday from 11am-4pm.
