Centered on the Center annual art exhibit at Huntington Beach Art Center shown in the picture above is a non-juried art show in which anybody can participate. Never had talent in painting but you love to paint neverthelesss? Well there's a show you can participate in by signing up, paying a fee and getting your work on over to the art venue.


Called Center on the Center, many residents and budding artists have shown their work at the Huntington Beach Art Center more than once. With approximately 165 local and regional artists displaying their original creations, "Centered on the Center," the open-call annual art exhibition at the gallery that runs from January through mid-February each year, is partially funded by the Huntington Beach Arts Foundation. Artists are charged a fee for each work they enter and are allowed wall space as long as it's not filled yet. It offers an opportunity to see what sort of art talent exists in the local region according to the Center's Director, Kate Hoffman.

Over a decade old, the show offers strategic challenges for those responsible for displaying the pieces. Photos, still life art, sculptures, oils, acrylics, chalk, watercolors and other media are represented in this broad spectrum show. While some find it entertaining and enlightening, the nature of the event has also invited mixed reviews from various media. For what it's worth, it's free to see and among the walls are many gems.
