Home: A Juried Exhibition

Orange County Center for Contemporary Art - OCCCA

Last Chance - July 5 through 26, 2014

Richard Turner, who juried this show, references the Wizard of Oz in the press release: Dorothy gets home by saying "there's no place like home."

His dad, Paul Sarkisian, makes photo-realistic paintings that look like collages (for instance, his subject might be pieces of colored paper and postcards arranged around each other).
