Theme: "How We See" In this exhibition, artists are invited to share their perspective on life, making art, meaning, contemporary issues, or stories from the artist point of view. The stories we tell from aesthetics to narratives shape our artistic style. "How We See" is an opportunity for artists to showcase their work and share these stories and perspectives. All entries MUST depict or be inspired by the unique and natural style of the artist. Subject matter is open-ended and developed in such a manner to lend freedom of expression in creativity for each artist!

We have made a few changes in how we operate at P.O.P. Gallery. Each class will be reduced in size to allow us to socially distance easier. In addition to this, we will be doing the following below to create the best and safest experience for everyone:
1. We are practicing social distancing (so please stay at least six feet apart from other patrons.)
2. We are wearing masks and ask that you and your children wear them during your time at the gallery. Masks should be worn at all times.
3. We are cleaning high-touch surfaces in accordance with the CDC's guidelines.
4. We ask that you come right at your drop-off and pick-up times so that the high traffic areas in the gallery will be kept clear during transitions. Parents, we ask that you wait in cars instead of our parent waiting room this Fall. We apologize for the inconvenience!
5. We have contact free payment options available, so you can pay for p.o.p. merch, artwork, and/or classes touch-free. (Venmo/PayPal/CashApp/Online)
6. We will have a hand sanitizing station at the doorway to the gallery, along with one in the kitchen area and in the back studio.
7. We will have a COVID-19 risk and liability waiver for parents to sign on the first day upon drop-off.
8. We will be performing no contact temperature checks for all children coming in for class. If your child is experiencing symptoms please do not bring them to the gallery. If your child or family members have recently vacationed in high-risk/exposed areas, or if family members are not well, please consider the risk you are placing our patrons, and other children before entering the gallery.
9. We have updated our gallery hours and are operating by appointment only on most days in the week. Please scroll all the way down to see revised gallery hours.
10. Finally, students will have their own supplies to keep up with! We will not be sharing materials in classes this Fall.
This will be a new way to take classes with us at P.O.P. Gallery, and now more than ever, we're committed to giving you and your children the highest level of service that you have come to expect from us!
We are excited that you have chosen us to deliver quality art programming for you and your sweet kiddos.
We thank you for your continued support!

Abstract artist, Dr. Valerie Gillespie uses color theory and texture to present moments in time. Remnants of the past contrast with expectations of the future in each composition, as images battle within the same space for recognition of their truth. Read more about Valerie on our "Meet the Owners" page!
Emmanuel Gillespie presents images of water with mixed media imagery. His large-scale work is based on the concept of water as it holds memories and the relationship between those we encounter from our past. Read more about Emmanuel on our "Meet the Owners" page!
