July’s Artist in Residence is Matt Spangler. He will be available July 12-14, 19-21, and 26-28. On Fridays, look for Spangler from 6:00pm to 10:00 and on the weekends, 5:00pm to 9:00pm

“Born and raised in San Diego, Matt has always been drawn to robots and technology. From an early age, he explored the idea of creating his own robots. Since he didn’t possess the ability to create an electronic-based one, his first-ever robot was made in the 4th grade out of trash. From then on, the obsession with all things robotics began and he affectionately is referred to as the ‘robot artist.’ Matt graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a degree in Entertainment Arts and began drawing robots full time in 2010.”

Featured Artistan

July’s Featured Artistan is David McNeley who will appear July 6-7 and 27-28 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm

“David McNeley, also known as ‘Mcbiff’, is a traditional artist from Huntington Beach, Calif., specializing in acrylic painting. His unique, new mid-century pop style is reminiscent of a commercial ad industry of a bygone era. Inspired by Disney artists that came before him, Mcbiff is a self-taught artist whose technique has taken many years to develop. Mcbiff has created a style that is both familiar and enthusiastically new.”

Nearby at Disney Home, they’ve brought in a guest of their own for the month.

Featured Artisan

July’s Featured Artisan at Disney Home is Temecula Olive Oil Co., who will be hosting tastings July 13-14, 20-21, and 27-28 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

“Temecula Olive Oil Company is family-owned and operated, and committed to using only California olives to make the highest quality olive oil. At their olive ranch, they practice sustainable agriculture, growing and harvesting a wide variety of olives and hand press using traditional methods to produce fresh, full-flavored extra virgin olive oil.”
