The first annual fundraising exhibition to benefit the art education programs at the Millard Sheets Art Center.

Support for this exhibition was generously provided by the Ruth and Joseph C. Reed Foundation for the Arts.


Established in 1936 as the Fine Arts Program of the Los Angeles County Fair, the Millard Sheets 
Art Center was "the first major gallery dedicated to art" in Los Angeles County. In keeping with its founder's, artist Millard Sheets, vision, current programs and exhibitions continue the long tradition of appreciating all art forms and helping support area professional and emerging artists.

The Holiday Show informationTypically, artists are asked to donate their work, and all the proceeds from the sale, for inclusion in fundraising exhibitions. Those artists participating in Artists for Art's Sake were offered tiered donation options and only if their artwork is purchased by appreciative buyers from around Southern California.

Hundreds of works, large and small, will be in the exhibition for sale to appreciative audiences and collectors throughout the region who are looking to expand their own collections or purchase gifts for holiday giving and in the process also give something back to support these artists and the art education programs for youth audiences at the art center.  This show will appeal to those who appreciate all artistic styles, such as representational, figurative, abstract, impressionist and contemporary that are expressed in a variety of media, such as drawing, painting, photography, digital, and mixed media.

In addition, there will be a special installation piece, Audience of One, that consists of 500 very small artworks, each individual piece for purchase ($20), or select several and create your own personalized installation piece!
