In the main floor gallery, The Artists Gallery (TAG) is proud to present L.A. Open, a juried exhibition highlighting exceptional artistic talent from Los Angeles County. Juried by esteemed artist, curator, and educator Kristine Schomaker, the showcase features 78 artworks from 62 artists. The selection was juried from more than 600 received submissions, with cash prizes and certificate of excellence awarded. The second group show, Small Things, takes place in the upper-level SKY Gallery at TAG. This showcase, juried by Eric Renard & Kenneth Rooney, is a collaboration with the California Art League. Selected artworks highlight the small, precise details that are often overlooked. Ornate brushstrokes, shadow, highlight, texture, color, and composition are emphasized elements throughout the exhibition.

A curatorial walkthrough of both exhibitions will take place on Saturday, Jan. 27th, beginning at 3 PM with Kristine Schomaker guiding us through L.A. Open. Guests will learn about Schomaker’s process in selecting artworks, her vision, challenges, and inspiration. Additionally, the exhibition’s “Best of Show” artists will be invited to speak about their works. Following, fine art photographer Eric Renard will guide guests through Small Things in the Sky Gallery. Selected artists will also speak about their involvement and artistic journeys.
