The Local Group Show – June 2019

The Local Group Show is an exhibition featuring the works of multiple artists from varying age groups, backgrounds, experiences and artistic mediums. Although this exhibit has no overarching theme, the stories, processes and perspectives of each artist highlight the creative diversity that can be found throughout Los Angeles County.

We believe all artists deserve a platform to be seen and heard. Every artist’s unique voice and form of expression contributes to the cultural and creative prosperity of our communities, and our society as a whole. Artists are the heart and soul of every community. They breath life into ideas and emotions, and help bring people together through their creativity.

Art promotes cultural diversity, economic development and civic engagement. It provides entertainment, joy and introspection, while educating, informing and bringing light to global issues. The arts also create a sense of pride and togetherness amongst community members.

As an arts-focused non-profit organization, we dedicate our Stay Gallery program to supporting local artists through month-long and pop-up exhibitions. We represent artists who strongly believe that creativity can impact the forward progression of our communitites. Our goal with The Local Group show is to bring a diverse group of artists together into one space, to share their creativity with each other, their friends and family, and their community members.

From sculpturists to painters, experienced exhibitionists to first-timers, high school students to artists decades into their craft, the Local Group Show encompasses creatives at every stage in their artistic journey. We aim to continue The Local Group Show on a bi-annual basis, and encourage artists of all backgrounds and artistic experiences to submit their work. If you are interested in submitting your work for 2020, please review our submission process.
