Educational Career Advancement Shows

This program allows national and international artists that may have not had the opportunity to exhibit in Los Angeles to have either a solo or a group show. This program acts as a catalyst for the professional careers of artists by helping them develop an audience for their artwork as well as the important experience of sharing their knowledge with the general public. This successful program has given the opportunity for artists to come from as far as Asia and Europe to fulfill their artistic visions.

LA Artcore Center’s core values focuses on diversity and equal opportunity for any and all artists. Our geographical location gives us the privilege of being surrounded by a multi-ethnic population with many different educational backgrounds. We have slated in our exhibition calendar a significant number of shows that focus on artists who come from different ethnic backgrounds, educating our audience toward the plurality of Southern California.

International Exchange Shows

With over 30 years of successful calendar exhibitions, the International Exchange Program is one of LA Artcore’s longest running programs. It allows a group of Los Angeles based artists to travel and exhibit work with their peers in prominent art centers and university museums around the world. The program also allows artists coming from abroad to be part of a group show in one of LA Artcore’s exhibitions spaces. Recent exchange shows include: Korea, Thailand and Italy. The coming year will feature an exchange with Japan.

Community Building Program

As part of our educational outreach program, LA Artcore provides opportunities to other parties in the field of visual arts to curate shows in our spaces. These exhibits are frequently partnerships with educators or other Nonprofit Arts Education or Cultural organizations. Providing gallery space is a great way to showcase their efforts, progress, and build bridges to grow a stronger bond between the Community and the Visual Arts.

and artists behind Ttozoi and exhibit them to the public.

LA Artcore provided a launching point for the LA Grand Ensemble,
which combines visual arts and classical music performance.

Rush Philanthropic was able to use the gallery for a pop-up African Art Benefit and Media Event, which combined music, painting, and fashion.

For many years Artcore has supported Visions and Voices, a USC program, combining Los Angeles Poets with an environment of Visual Arts to host their readings.


Art Mentoring Shows

This educational program gives art students the opportunity to experience firsthand what it is to show their creations in a professional setting. This program not only enhances the creative process of young artists, but also allows them to develop goals and deadlines. This unique experience gives the students the opportunity to work with their instructors and exhibit with more experienced artists.
