Arts Visalia is open Wed. through Sat. from Noon-5:30.* There is
limited capacity in the gallery and it is recommend that you schedule
an appointment by calling 559-739-0905 or email
artsvisalia@sbcglobal.net. If you are unable to come to the gallery in
person we have created Virtual Gallery Tours that are available at
www.artsvisalia.org/virtual-tours.

Our current exhibition featuring the works of Kalee Appleton and Brita
d’Agostino ends with a First Friday reception on August 6th from
6:00-8:00 p.m. Kalee Appleton’s work blurs the lines between
drawing, sculpture, and photography to create alluring new forms and
shapes that merge both 2D and 3D elements. The exquisite collage and
installation works of Brita d’Agostino create a trick of the eye
that give them an appearance of a 3D form.

For questions or to schedule a visit, please call us at 559-739-0905
or email artsvisalia@sbcglobal.net. You can also follow us on facebook
and instagram or visit our website at www.artsvisalia.org for more
