Taking up Space
January 30 - March 26, 2021
A deeply personal and intimate group show, Taking Up Space, will feature a diverse group of women artists who share their stories, cultures, and perspectives through their artistic practice. Staged to supplement rather than negate the typically male-dominated exhibitions of the past, this show will highlight experiences, struggles, and strengths of these women while providing visitors an opportunity to look through the eyes of this group of talented artists who will come together in the space.
Exhibiting Artists: Chloe Allred, Catalina Bellizzi-Itiola, Hazel Choo, Alexandra Carter, Lanise Howard, Carmen Mardonez, Elisa Ortega Montilla, Juliana Rico, Jacqueline Valenzuela, and Diana Williams
*As of January 30th, the Brea Gallery is able to open free to the public as a retail space in order to allow visitors to shop in our Gift Shop and purchase artwork on display. Open hours will remain Wednesday through Sunday, 12pm to 5pm. Advanced reservations are not required, but capacity will be limited. Masks, social distancing, and temperature checks are required for entry. Online shopping with curbside pickup is still available during the same hours.
The Taking Up Space exhibit will also be presented virtually in a variety of ways. During the course of the show, January 30th – March 26th, online visitors will be able to explore the exhibition through a 3D rendered click thru tour on ArtSteps, images and video of the exhibit alongside artist interview videos on the Gallery’s blog and social media, artist Instagram Takeover weekends, IG live curator tours, and a Zoom Artist Panel. More details to be determined and announced soon.
