This summer, Gallery at the Park presents its annual Juried Show, a showcase of talented artists from across the region!

The Gallery received 250 submissions, and Liana Bennett, the 2024 juror, selected 61 pieces for exhibition, representing 46 artists.

Liana Bennett is an artist, an art teacher, and the founder of Arts Umbrella, an art education center. In high school, Bennett won a scholarship to Art Center School, and after, a scholarship to Chouinard (now CalArts). She paints in acrylics, oils, and mixed media.

“The figure challenges me to this day, and it will always be the subject that I am pulled to,” says Bennett. “I need to feel a connection to whatever I paint, places I've been, people I know.”

Bennett has displayed in many galleries and has juried exhibitions across the Pacific Northwest.

The reception and awards ceremony is on Friday, July 12, from 6—8pm.

Some artists will receive monetary prizes, with more than $3,000 being awarded altogether!
