Exhibits // Fragments

Oct 6 - Nov 26

Overview // Challenging its membership is nothing new for The Painters Group (TPG), one of the Central Coast’s largest and most active artists group and an affiliate of the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art (SLOMA). TPG’s most recent challenge was issued when the group’s leadership announced Fragments as the title and theme of TPG’s next exhibition at SLOMA on October 6, 2017 through November 26, 2017.

Juror Margaret Korisheli, well known artist and art teacher at Cuesta College since 1991, was given the responsibility to select the artwork to be exhibited from the submitted entries. Ms. Korisheli also will be selecting the three Juror Award winners before the exhibition opens on the first Friday in October, in conjunction with Art After Dark.

SLOMA’s curatorial staff works with all the organization’s artist groups to install exhibitions such as Fragments in SLOMA’s McMeen Gallery. Curator and Director of Exhibitions, Ruta Saliklis, says “I applaud TPG for planning an exhibition with a compelling theme and a thoughtful juror. It’s good to see an exhibition through the eyes of another art expert. TPG makes great use of this jewel-box of an exhibition space.”

Details // An opening reception for Fragments will take place on Friday, October 6, 2017 from 6 to 9 PM (members-only preview 5 to 6 PM) in conjunction with Art After Dark. Admission is free and open to the public.
