EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

This exhibition is designed to provide the South Bay and surrounding communities exposure to the rich diversity of the arts and their contribution to our culture. The TOCA 2022 Juried Show will celebrate the artists who capture this beauty in their creative process. It also provides emerging and established artists the opportunity to be recognized for their work and for the public to purchase excellent examples of original art.

The exhibition is part of the 2022 TOCA SouthBay Festival of the Arts. Our 2019 festival (prior to Covid-19 closures) drew an attendance of over 3,500. This year over 4,500 attendees are expected. The event features performing arts on 3 stages, children’s art demonstrations and crafts, food, beer & wine, and art displays. All proceeds benefit the mission of the non-profit Torrance Cultural Arts Foundation.

The juried exhibition will be held in the Ken Miller Center at the Torrance Cultural Center and will be followed by an Awards Reception.
