Artists for Art's Sake is an annual fundraising exhibition to benefit the art education programs at the Millard Sheets Art Center, Fairplex. Located in Pomona, CA the Millard Sheets Art Center provides year-round art exhibitions and art education for students of all ages. 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. Our current programs continue the long tradition of acceptance and appreciation of all art forms and artists.

Artist participants in this inaugural exhibition have the opportunity to exhibit and sell their artwork to an appreciative audience in support of the education of our visual art students. Entry fees and artwork sales will generate funding for such programs as Discovery Arts for middle school students in the Pomona Unified School District and Free Family Workshops for children and their families.

SCA is happy to announce that Thom Wright is one of about 90 artists participating in the First Annual Food, Fine Art and Music Festival of Huntington Beach.

As in many communities across the USA, art shows are evolving into weekend cultural art events.  This one is hosted near the Hyatt Resort and Hotel at Beach Blvd. and Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach. This fine art event has no crafts, has classic rock music of the 60’s and 70’s, and is in collaboration with the Huntington Beach Art Center, of which I am a member. Thom will be selling his recent paintings (see example above of one of his “jazz guitar abstracts” series), and in competition with many, many others.  And there are greater enjoyments of the day with options for sampling the best of local restaurants and entertainment by many old-time rock and roll bands and singers.  A big turnout is expected from their heavy media advertising for its opening success.

As yet, Thom does not have a booth assignment, but it will have a sign on the top of a white canopy:  Thom Wright Fine Art

Friday September 5 (4-8 pm)  $5 entry first half-day special
Saturday September 6 and 7 (11 am – 8 pm)

Food and Art Entry: $15/day, and with music $20/day
