Mistlin Gallery People Places & Things

The Central California Art Association at the Mistlin Gallery, in downtown Modesto, is pleased to present the exhibition, People, Places, and Things. This CCAA show is a juried show which is open to the public. Looking for Stanislaus county’s best and brightest artists to showcase their unique perspective of the world around them.  This exhibition will show at the Mistlin Gallery July 12, 2022 -August 6, 2022.

People, Places, and Things, invite the community to use any medium, whether it be paint, clay, tile, paper, graphite, collage, camera, or computer. Go as far as your imagination will take you; there is no limit to how an artist can represent the world around them. We are looking for pieces that express a personal view of this open-ended theme. This can include landscapes, portraits, environmental portraits, still life, and even creations from your imagination. 

We will also be having a first ever Emerging Artist space featuring local photographer Roger Smith, a Modesto Junior College, and Sacramento State graduate.  Roger uses his camera lens to tell stories. Roger’s inventive use of format, materials, and techniques provide a variety of unique and stellar images. His love of photographic art inspires him to share his knowledge and collaborate with others to gain and share new ideas with the community.

There will be six monetary prizes awarded including, People’s Choice award, that will be given out at the Third Thursday Art Walk on July 21st from 5-8 p.m. Unlike the other prizes which will be judged by our chosen jurors, the People’s Choice award is made by the public vote. From July 12th to July 21st, we will have a donation jar set out so that the community can donate for this award. 

The Mistlin Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturdays, noon to 4:00 p.m. The Art Walk is the third Thursday of the month, July 21, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Refreshment will be provided at the Art Walk, courtesy of Picasso’s Deli and the Mistlin Gallery.  The gallery is open to the public free of charge and parking validation is available for parking at the Eleventh Street garage between J street and K street. 

The CCAA/Mistlin Gallery is a non-profit organization that offers many programs to the community, including Youth Art Scholars, Memorial Medical Center’s Complementary Therapy classes, CLASS Art in Schools, Grace Lieberman Cabarets, Expose Yourself to Art streaming artist interviews, and much more. We have recently been designated as the Arts Council for Stanislaus County and have created the arts collaboration, Stanislaus Arts to amplifying the importance of all the Arts in our community.
