The Holiday Show & Sale extends the small gift shop space to fill our large exhibition space. Come and shop your holiday list early from a variety of items for sale made by local artisans. Don’t miss out on unique works of art perfect for gift giving. Gift show will run from November 21st through December 15th.

Arts Visalia’s Young Imaginations Gallery will display the artworks of the 5-17 year old participants of our children’s classes year-round. Please stop in and take a look at what they created in the month of November on display in December. Arts Visalia will go dark for 2 weeks following the Holiday Show & Sale closing for annual maintenance. Be ready for a kick off of the New Year starting with Dr. Hsu’s photography in January. In January 2019, Arts Visalia’s gallery will be displaying Dr. Dean Hsu’s photography. He states, “Growing up in the post WWII era in a war torn country, I have longed for a world of peace and harmony with hope, yet not losing the sight of the disadvantages of a progressive civilization. I see the world in the way Normal Rockwell had portrayed the world in his nostalgic illustrations and paintings reflecting the perfect home and society.” Come view the world through his eyes in this breathtaking exhibition depicting the discoveries of nature, cultures, religions, and experiences. Arts Visalia’s adult and children’s art classes for spring start in February at Arts Visalia. For more information and class descriptions, please go to artsvisalia.org, call us at (559) 739-0905, or visit us at the gallery at 214 E. Oak Ave., Visalia, CA 93291.
