The Sequoia High School Exhibition “Person, place, thing and in
between” and Opening Reception at Arts Visalia

In November 2019, Arts Visalia presents the Sequoia High School
Exhibition Person, place, thing and in between. This is the third year
the works of Sequoia High School students will be displayed in Arts
Visalia’s gallery. Instructed by Sarah Coker, multiple art classes
will be represented, approximately exhibiting a base of 140 students.
Sequoia High School offers a fresh start to students in an accepting
and non-threatening atmosphere, as well as success in earning a living
through vocational and career preparation. This exhibition continues
to offer collaboration with community members and students who feel
misrepresented and suppressed in society.
Person, place, thing and in between will be displayed October 30th
through November 15th, with an opening reception on First Friday,
November 1st, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The exhibition is sponsored
in part by Tulare County Board of Supervisors Step Up! and the
California Arts Council.
Join Arts Visalia’s Joy of Art Fall raffle by purchasing a $25
ticket at Arts Visalia. By purchasing a ticket, you have a chance to
win one of three exceptional prizes: Pasadena Get-Away for 2, Night on
the Town, or an Art Night for 10 at Arts Visalia. The lucky winners
will be pulled live at the opening reception on November 1st.
In December 2019, Arts Visalia will host the Annual Holiday Show &
Sale. The Holiday Show & Sale is our one and only gift show displaying
over 50 local artisans featuring a wide array of unique works of art
that are hand crafted. It’s an opportunity for patrons to do their
holiday shopping in one place. The exhibition starts November 20th, a
week before Thanksgiving and Black Friday. By purchasing a handmade
gift, you are supporting the arts in your community plus taking
something special home with you. Mark your calendars so you don’t
miss out.
Arts Visalia’s Young Imaginations Gallery will display the artworks
of 5-17 year old participants of our children’s classes from
October’s sessions of Art in Painting.
Arts Visalia’s Fall class enrollment forms are available at Arts
Visalia and online. Fall classes have started and will continue
