The 2020 Left Coast Exhibition was scheduled to open at Sanchez Art Center on Friday, April 10, 2020. As the world turned upside down with the spread of COVID-19, it became clear that the exhibition would not be able to take place in-person as communities responded to shelter-in-place orders to protect public health.
In response, artists and Sanchez Art Center staff quickly pivoted to present the show in a newly created virtual gallery.
This year's juror is Carin Adams, Curator of Art at the Oakland Museum of California. Carin will be having a virtual Juror's Talk and Artist Gallery Walk on Sunday, April 26, 3 -5pm. CLICK HERE to sign up for this event at the bottom of the page.
