31st Annual Made in California Juried Exhibition
April 9 - June 17, 2016

The Brea Art Gallery is proud to present the 31st Annual Made in California Juried Exhibition. Each year we are enormously proud to have California artists unite within our space. This year's exhibition is comprised of eighty-six stunning works of art ranging from photography to painting to installation to video. Artists in all stages of their careers submit over a thousand entries annually, inspiring us to present the highest quality exhibition to our visitors. Thank you to all of the artists who submitted work for consideration, and congratulations to those who were selected for this year's show. We are equally thrilled to present this year's solo show Play Hard or Go Home by Chrystal McConnell, a full-room interactive installation riddled with hidden secrets.
