Young at Art Exhibition and Opening Reception 2018
August 2018 brings Arts Visalia’s annual Young at Art Exhibition, which features a variety of artwork from our Young at Art Children’s Summer Program. The exhibition will also showcase artwork from students in our Art Program in Goshen, in partnership with Family Services. The Young at Art Children’s Summer Program hosted seven weeks of classes, highlighting the seven elements of art: line, shape, form, texture, value, color, and space. Works featured are those of three age groups: 5-6, 7-10, and 11 and up and present a diverse collection of 2-D and 3-D projects. We are excited to present an exhibition in which the students have learned about different techniques, artists, and approaches to creating and displaying art. This exhibition truly utilizes our gallery space and is not limited to only hangings on the wall or the use of pedestals. Be sure to look up, as student work will be hanging from the rafters as well, creating an immersive experience of what our Children’s Summer Program is all about. This exhibition runs from August 1st through August 31st. The opening reception is free to the public and will be held on Friday, August 3rd, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. With kind support, the exhibition is sponsored in part by Bueno Beverage Company, United Way of Tulare County, Southern California Edison, City of Visalia, Measure N City of Visalia Grant, Valley PBS, Step Up, Visalia Breakfast Lions Club, the Carolyn Kruse Foundation, and the Sence Foundation. In September, Arts Visalia will host artist, Eryn Williams, in her solo exhibition in which she will display an impressionistic body of painted storyteller works that demonstrate vibrant colors and thick brush strokes. Eryn Williams was born and raised in Visalia and went to Mt. Whitney High School after which she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and Art Studio from UC Davis. She currently resides and has an art studio in downtown Fresno and is part of the Thursday ArtHop. Arts Visalia’s adult and children’s arts classes will resume again in the fall, starting in October and ending in December.
