The exhibition this month comes from a new twist on an invitational: gallery members invited artists who have NEVER shown at State of the Art before.
The resulting group of guest artists come from many disciplines and locations. Some are friends, known for just a few years or for decades. Others are family members. Some are local artists. Others live as far away as California and even the south of France! One member invited her college mentor; another, his young granddaughter. Some members chose to show their own work along with their guest. A few are even doing collaborative work along with their colleagues. But almost half of the participating SOAG members chose to give the whole of their allocated space to their invitees.
The show will include work from virtually every artistic discipline: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, computer generated works, and more!
Show dates are June 1- 26, 2016. There will be an artists’ reception on Friday, June 3, from 5-8pm.
