WHAT'S NEW IN OUR GALLERIES
ARTISTS FOR THE NEW CENTURY
September 9 - December 23
The Center hosts this show every five years with the assistance of editors and staff from the finest representational publications who nominate artists to be included. Artists are either relatively new to the fine art scene or are those who have painted for some time but have not received the notoriety they deserve.
THE SMALL WORKS SHOW
May 13 - December 23
Every year our Small Works Show greets our visitors with beautiful work in a broad variety of subjects but a size limitation of 14 inches. Work can be taken at time of purchase, unlike work in our other exhibitions. We look forward to another dynamic show in 2017.
THE LAUMEISTER FINE ART COMPETITION
July 29 - October 8
Our annual competition will this year be juried by Calvin Liang, a highly respected member of the Oil Painters of America and the California Art Club.
Representational work is not limited to subject and each year this show offers our patrons a very impressive collection of work by many of today’s finest artists. Monetary awards will be given.
