Kalassal – Kala’s Annual Half-Off Art Sale | Fall Fundraiser

This year, for the first time ever, (wonder of all wonders!), KALASSAL and the Artists’ Annual Exhibition will converge to open on the exact same night! We’re gearing up for a whopping good party in the gallery and expecting a big turn out. The sale continues Friday and Saturday with extended evening hours. Like last year, we will have a free Family Art Making Day on Saturday, studio tours, and much, much more.


October 23 – Dec 13

Karla Artists' Annual Exhibition

Artists affiliated with Kala Art Institute will be exhibiting their work at the Kala Gallery from October 23 through December 13, 2014. The exhibition reflects the diverse Kala community with a juried exhibition of prints, photographs, paintings, drawings, videos, mixed media works, and sculpture.

Curated by Kala's staff members Mayumi Hamanaka and Yuzo Nakano, this continuous exhibition series features works on paper by artists affiliated with our studios. This group exhibition is presented throughout Kala's new gallery facility and changes every three-four months.
