This March marks our second annual Community Gallery exhibit in partnership with Orange High School.
The New Seen exhibit is designed to give the talented artists of Orange High School the experience of having their work presented in a professional gallery space. We coordinate with the teachers to make sure every piece is properly represented and priced, then we design and hang the show with the same level of detail that professional artists would receive.
This year the exhibit features 42 artists with 2D and 3D work in a variety of media — from pen and ink to acrylic to ceramics. The opening reception on March 7 attracted a crowd of 50 people and the artists were thrilled to see work from their fellow artists sell during the evening. One artist featured in the show, who is heading off to art school next year, expressed her excitement to have professional gallery show to list on her college application. Based on her work — and the work of the other artists in the exhibit — we can expect to hear more about these talented young people in the future.
