Current and Upcoming Exhibits

CURRENTLY SHOWING

Portraits, Figures and Selfies

On display through February 23, 2023
Viewable Online through April 6, 2023

The Gallery at OSA is excited to announce Portraits, Figures, and Selfies, an exhibition featuring the wide range of experimental forms, compositions, and subjects featured in contemporary figure painting. Since ancient times, artists have attempted to capture the aura, personality, humor, and beauty of humanity through representational, abstract, and anatomical art. The figure remains one of the most challenging and rewarding subjects to represent in both form and concept.

In Portraits, Figures, and Selfies we see the artist's interpretation of the figure, human or otherwise! Whether drawn, painted, sculpted, or photographed, works delve into the psyche, reflect the self, or depict the body.

Process & Practice: OSA Student, Instructor, & Volunteer Show

Viewable Online through March 2, 2023

Every work of art is a process - the end result of trial and error, unexpected discoveries, and the collaboration of maker and materials. Artmaking is a lifelong pursuit, an inquiry whose answers only lead to more questions. At OSA students, instructors, and community members show up week after week to engage in the process and practice of making art. This exhibition highlights the creativity and dedication of the students, instructors and volunteers who gather at OSA to develop their skills, learn new techniques, and exchange ideas.
