Art Gallery Exhibitions
3rd MFA Biennial Exhibition
was on display from January 23 to March 11, 2016. Fresh and introspective, this exhibition featured bodies of artwork from a selection of Masters of Fine Arts students attending local schools and universities. As this biennial show has transformed into another proud tradition at the Brea Art Gallery, this third collaboration expanded to include exceptional artists from CalArts, CSUN, CSUB, UCLA, and Otis in addition to continuing relationships with CSUF, CSULB, CGU, and UCI. A diverse collection of works including painting, installation, video, photography, and sculpture illustrated the broad range of artwork being made by these dedicated students of the arts.
Made in California
California artists unite to represent the Golden State in this yearly juried exhibition. After over three decades, this show has become a household name when speaking of California art. Working in a huge array of mediums and styles, these artists explore the creative movements happening within our great state. With over a thousand entries annually, artists in all stages of their careers compete for a number of prizes, namely the highly sought after solo show opportunity.
Thought provoking works fill this invitational exhibition, shedding light on both local and global topics of concern, from pollution to homelessness. More and more, contemporary artists are using their craft, whether it be traditional mediums such as painting or community engagement projects, to approach these issues. By highlighting artists working in the realm of socially-engaged art, the Gallery hopes to show the potential for art to have an influential voice, while evoking thoughts, emotions, and questions within the viewer.

Beautiful and awe-inspiring, this annual exhibition featured one hundred of the finest watercolor works from around the world chosen by juror Robbie Laird.
