Mount Invites Artists to Hang Work at Community Exhibit
The Art Department at Mount Saint Mary’s University, Los Angeles, invites artists throughout Southern California to participate in a community exhibit by hanging their own art in the Jose Drudis-Biada Art Gallery, 12001 Chalon Road.
The College will provide hammers and nails, and artists will pitch in their art and labor. Artists must pay a $15 participation fee for each piece hung in the gallery. Proceeds, including a 20 percent commission on sales of artwork, will go toward student scholarships.
The exhibit is open for artists until all of the gallery’s walls are full. Artists may deliver their work from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 7, 9, and 10. An artists’ reception will be held in the gallery from 3 to 5 p.m. Sept. 11, and the exhibit runs from Sept. 13 through Oct. 7.
