We received hundreds of submissions that fit the bill and the selection process was grueling, but we found what we could best describe as amazing, captivating, phenomenal, and extraordinary.

 

 

Works chosen featured a wide variety of styles, and mediums including Acrylic, Oil, Pen and Ink, Graphite, Photography, Pastel, and Watercolor.

It's Still Political

Exhibition: November 7th, to November 29, 2019
Guest Artist: Naomi Spinak

 

 

Though often divisive and inflammatory, we can't avoid politics in today's world.

 

The intrinsic beliefs and opinions that shape us as human beings can almost always be seen in a political light.

 

For our show this month, we found art that express all things political, regardless of party or belief systems.

 

This exhibition hopes to explore our continued political discourse with the use of imagery to make the point of our current state of the nation.
 

In some cases the artwork is a literal artistic portrayal of a politician or political issue or opinion,

and in some cases it is figurative and interpretive.

This exhibition provides visual commentary about subjects like human rights and immigration, pro-life or pro-choice,

gun rights or gun control, animal rights, and environmental issues.

Mediums used by artists differ greatly, and range from tools including paints, brushes, pencils, pens, and pastels; or different types of photography, and computer generated works.

 

Selected from more than 160 local, national and international artists this exhibition features art media that includes: Acrylic, Graphite, Color Pencil, Fiber Art, Illustration, Mixed Media, New Media, Oil, Painting, Pastel, Photography (Traditional and Digital), Printmaking, Jewelry, Sculpture and Watercolor.

Women  in Art: Group Exhibition

March 7th - March 29th, 2019

 

 

During the last ten years we have seen an the past decade has seen a huge increase in its number of galleries and non-profit spaces popping up across the state; yet the bulk of these locations continue to promote the work of male artists, begging the inquiry of how gender equality has figured in this equation. While we are heading at such a fast rate, why are women artists being left behind?

 

The continued unevenness of gender representation within the arts is a topic; which up until now, was habitually ignored. The lack of concrete necessity compares inauspiciously with the time during the 1970s, when a large quantity of art movements in Europe and North America and critiqued patriarchal command and investigated the social and political impact of identity, sexual difference and gender.

 

During this time, statistical data that was gathered by activists in Los Angeles revealed that over a period of ten years, there was only a single; one woman show. All other single person shows were for male artists.

 

We chose a wide variety of mediums and styles to show a snap-shot of incredible, groundbreaking, and incredibly crafted works.

 

Works in this exhibition include Acrylic, , Assemblage, Collage, Digital Art, Mixed Media, and Oil Paintings.

Matters of the Heart: Group Exhibition

February 7 to February 28,  2019

 

 

 

Selected from  local, national and international artists this exhibition features works in both fine and contemporary art.

 

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, the month of February will be all about the heart.


Just as discussion about the heart is a subjective matter,

so too is the interpretation of the theme for this show.

 

For this call for art we selected works that not only evoke a feelings of love (passion, affection, lust, tenderness, infatuation, etc.), but also can selected literal images of hearts themselves.

 

Artists provided conceptual, literal or emotional approaches on matters of the heart
and the results were amazing.
