Arts Visalia Presents: Maile Sand-Bearing Witness
February 3 @ 12:00 pm - February 26 @ 5:30 pmFree
Using a mesmerizing effect of the light, Maile Sand’s oil paintings invite viewers to marvel in the beauty of everything around us. In Sand’s exhibition, Bearing Witness, she finds humbling and exquisite moments in both the minutiae and grander of the world. Sand has also created a second exhibition that will be featured in Gallery 2 of Arts Visalia that features her personal endeavor to explore and process her grief, anger and fear in response to the Black Lives Matter movement. For Sand the gallery acts as a sacred space; a space to question, consider, explore…FEEL…and honor lives tragically lost. The exhibition will be on display February 3rd-26th, with a potential opening reception Friday, February 5th from 6-8pm.
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 these engaging exhibitions. 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.
In March Arts Visalia will be hosting the Seen and Unseen art exhibition. The exhibition will celebrate the life’s work of Chicano Artist Ricardo Favela, and other Central Valley artists to bring awareness to the regions rich cultural diversity. Seen and Unseen will be featured in the gallery from March 3rd-26th, 2021.
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, and all whose faithful support has sustained us over the years and continues to keep Arts Visalia a community center for the visual arts. 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.
