2020 has been an interesting year so far with many unique challenges. We did not want this to prevent us from having our annual Open Art Exhibit.

 

So for the first time ever we are proud to reveal our 2020 Virtual Open Art Exhibit. We had 114 submissions from 58 artists from all over the state of California, even one from Nevada!
