National art show to feature Tehachapi

The Tehachapi Arts Commission announced they will be hosting Tehachapi's first national representational public art exhibition on the weekend of July 24-25.

Nearly 40 nationally recognized artists visited Tehachapi in May to explore the landscape, be inspired and commit their inspiration to canvas en plein air. The completed pieces from the May paintout were juried into the July show where they will be available for everyone to view and perhaps purchase. The artists, including a few from Tehachapi, will be available to talk to the public and answer questions about their work.

Art 2021 Tehachapi will be held at the Aspen Builders Community Activity Center located at 410 W. D Street in Tehachapi. Show hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free.

A VIP reception is planned for Friday, July 23 from 5 to 9 p.m. for the benefit of the Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley Foundation to be used in future art purchases for the hospital.

Tickets are $100 (advanced purchase only) and are available by emailing [email protected] or by calling Laura at (626) 945-3753.

Deadline for ticket purchases is July 15.
