Arts Visalia Presents Surviving or Thriving
2020 in Review
Did you barely survive or totally thrive during 2020? Arts Visalia will be showcasing artwork reflecting the 2020 experience January 6th-January 29th, 2021. This juried exhibition features artwork from a variety of artists and mediums that have chosen to show us their 2020 through their imaginative art. Best of Show and People’s Choice winners will be announced on Friday, January 8th, 2021. Arts Visalia is anticipating having our doors open Wednesday-Saturday from noon-5:30 p.m. to allow our visitors to experience the artworks in person. However, we will continue to have a virtual gallery tour available on our website at www.artsvisalia.org/virtual-tours to allow everyone an opportunity to see this engaging exhibition. If Arts Visalia is unable to have our doors open we will be offering the opportunity to schedule your viewing experience Wednesday through Saturday from 1:00 PM- 3:00 PM.
February will bring us the oil paintings of Maile Sand. Her paintings use a play of the light to create a mesmerizing effect in her work. Sand invites her audience to join her in marveling in the beauty of the world. The Maile Sand exhibition will run from February 3rd through February 26th, 2021, with a potential opening reception on Friday February 5th.
Arts Visalia is celebrating 25 years as the area’s premiere center for the visual arts. With the support of many throughout the years, we have fervently carried on the founders’ vision to create a permanent place to view the visual arts and provide art education in Visalia. As we commemorate this milestone, we acknowledge and thank the original building partners. We hope you’ll join us throughout 2021 as we recognize our founders and building partners, recount our history, and celebrate our vision of educating, engaging, and enhancing our community through the visual arts.
With 2020 now behind us Arts Visalia wants to thank everyone who continues to support our mission. This past year was a difficult one, but through your generous donations, moral support, and virtual participation we have been able to carry on the legacy that was started 25 years ago with no plans of stopping. Again, we say thank you.
