Bistango Kicks Off New Art Show with Reception


Bistango Restaurant kicks off its newest art exhibit, with an opening reception to honor the artists and introduce their work to the community on Saturday, June 9 from 3 to 5 p.m. In conjunction with Forest & Ocean Gallery, the exhibition features the works of local artists and will be showing through October.

Guests will be able to meet the artists, as well as enjoy a glass of white wine and pizzas, provided by Bistango’s culinary and beverage teams.

Bistango art curator Antoinette Sullivan has curated a show of vibrant new works including paintings by Greg La Rock, David Downes, William Havlicek, Cydette Vikander and Michael Jacques; sculptures by Sukhdev Dail; and photography by Robert Hanson, Jason Haygood, Tomb Lamb and Ludo Leideritz, who is also the founder and principal of Forest & Ocean Gallery. All art will be available for acquisition at Bistango during the duration of the showing.

Bistango proprietor, John Ghoukassian has dedicated himself to showcasing all things art, creating a perfect juxtaposition between the culinary artistry of Chef Javier Montoya and the rotating artists featured on the gallery walls and hallways of the restaurant.

With the help and guidance of Sullivan, Ghoukassian’s genuine appreciation and passion for art has provided a unique platform that has allowed hundreds of local, national and internationally renowned artists to showcase their artwork in one of Orange County’s finest and unique venues for 31 years.

In addition to the pieces from Forest & Ocean Gallery artists, Diana Ghoukassian, John Ghoukassian’s wife, will also exhibit some of her own artful photography this summer, providing a taste of her own personal artistic expression.

To RSVP for the art show, please email

Bistango is at 19100 Von Karman Ave. #100, Irvine.
