July 1st – July 31st, 2015
Reception: Friday, July 3rd, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Each Year, Arts Visalia celebrates the work of artists of the Central California region who are known for their three-dimensional or sculptural creations. Titled That Extra Dimension 2015, this annual exhibition serves as a vital survey of the works of such artists from throughout this area, providing an exciting and enjoyable exhibition for visitors to Arts Visalia.
Among the primary goals at Arts Visalia is the promotion of the visual artists of our local and regional community as we strive to shine a light on the depth of talented individuals with Tulare County and Central California roots. Many of the artists with work in the show have participated in past installments of the exhibition, others are new exhibitors at Arts Visalia. Each brings something unique in terms of their personal creative expression to the exhibition.
The varied materials and skillful manipulation of those materials which each artist brings to bear on their work underscores the quality and diversity of the creative work being made today. Some works are beautiful in their form, some whimsical and playful, while others ask the viewer to contemplate questions surrounding the meaning of the work. Consistent throughout is the craftsmanship and creativity brought to the works by each artist.
The exhibition includes works by the following artists: Fern Allen, Toni Best, Derek Borges, Diane Burke, Carole Clum, Antonio Cuellar, Barbara Federman, John Friedrich, Ed Gillum, David Griswold, David Hicks, Shirley Keller, Kris Kessey, Moni Mauch, Sam McKinney, Joe Morel, Mike Perez, Miguel Pujol, Joan Siebel, John Sundstrom, Sherley Tucker, Russell Wright and Evany Zirul.
That Extra Dimension 2015 will be on display at Arts Visalia from July 1st through July 31st with an opening reception to be held Friday evening, July 3rd, from 6 to 8pm. Admission is free and open to the public.
