Emerge! The Art Show supports local artists and children
Proceeds benefit Casa Pacifica and budding community artists
What: A trio of talented artists collaborated this winter to create a show-stopping series that will inspire you to emerge from whatever holds you back from following your dreams! The theme of the mixed media collection speaks to the struggles and triumphs of balancing our creative and grounded sides.
Most of the ready-to-hang wall pieces are fully collaborative works, featuring photography by Christine Stahr, painting by Ryan McGeary and woodwork by Jeff Carmi.
In support of local children in need, Emerge! The Art Show will donate half of all proceeds to Casa Pacifica in Camarillo.
