Sequoia High School Art Exhibit: A Promise of a Fresh Start

Arts Visalia is excited to once again present the Sequoia High School Exhibition after being unable to have it last year. This is the fourth year Arts Visalia has hosted this exhibition showcasing the talent of students from multiple classes instructed by Sarah Coker.

Sequoia High School offers a fresh start to students in an accepting and non- threatening atmosphere, as well as success in earning a living through vocational and career preparation. This exhibition continues to offer collaboration with community members and students who feel misrepresented and suppressed in society.

 Arts Visalia is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from Noon to 5:30 p.m.  If you are unable to come to the gallery in person we have created Virtual Gallery Tours that are available at: www.artsvisalia.org/virtual-tours.

For questions or to schedule a visit, please call us at 559-739-0905 or email artsvisalia@sbcglobal.net.”
