The 1078 Gallery in downtown Chico was the venue for this year’s Keep Chico Weird art show.

This show had art pieces ranging from realism to surrealism, jello sculptures to clay and ceramics. A lot of the work didn’t seem weird at all. There were a lot of pieces that spoke a million words with their imagery. People came to the show by the tens, by 7 p.m. the venue was packed to the point most people with a camera couldn’t get a clean shot.

Many people at the show stated that this was one of the biggest turnouts they had seen at the 1078 gallery. To keep the weird vibe going the El Rey Theatre hosted the annual “Keep Chico Weird” talent show Jan. 28.
