who we are.
Since our founding in 2019, by Patricia F. Arroyo, the Locals Art Space has evolved into a diverse group of over 70 members representing numerous artistic disciplines. We are an approachable organization for all things artistic and holistic, including sculpture, painting, drawing, fiber, photography, collage, and digital art. New members are always welcome.
To promote the advancement of the visual arts, and provide exhibition, studio, and classroom space for local artists.
To offer stimulating, unique, thought-provoking exhibitions; to provide a social setting for artists and their friends to meet, discuss, and exchange ideas about art.
Our Artistic Philosophy
We believe that art is valuable and necessary to the cultural life of any community; that people need a place to gather and work together; that skillful artists can learn from novices as well as the other way around; that everyone has something valuable to offer; that seeing one's work displayed for public consumption is an empowering experience; that one's greatest capacity is the ability to be creative; that making art is a way of defining who you are.
We believe in transparency, diversity, and inclusion. The role of our council is to oversee the management, services, and gallery for the Locals Art Space. All officers are members elected by other Locals Art Space members for a two year term.
The Locals Art Space is a domestic non-profit corporation (#0450799770) since April 18, 2022.
