The Oceanside Museum of Art has an affiliate group of membership called “Artist Alliance”. Membership in Artist Alliance provides opportunities for interaction, visibility and growth for artists in the region. Sparks Gallery is pleased to host the latest exhibition of artwork from artists in the Artist Alliance group who are located in Southern California. 27 pieces from the Artist Alliance members were juried into the exhibition by Sparks Gallery owner & chief curator Sonya Sparks. The artwork will be on display at Sparks Gallery from April 27 – July 7, 2019. All works are for sale and directly support the local artists in the Artist Alliance group.
Sonya Sparks explains her curatorial vision for this exhibit:
“While there were many different themes in the works submitted for this show, I found myself drawn towards pieces which feature the artist’s observation of human encounters with nature, as well as those that show our social encounters with one another. These themes served as a guide for my selections. Some works are traditionally crafted, while others are abstract or surreal.”
