From the organizer:
OMA is thrilled to present their fifth biennial, continuing the tradition of elevating the voice of Southern California artists and celebrating the best work from OMA’s Artist Alliance.

This exhibition represents only a small cross-section of our remarkable artist members. The competition was fierce—ultimately only 61 artworks were selected from nearly 900 entries by juror Alessandra Moctezuma, Professor of Art and Gallery Director at San Diego Mesa College.

Jurying the artworks to be included in this year’s exhibition was a challenge. Juror Moctezuma adds that, “As a curator and professor of art, I really enjoyed seeing the variety of approaches, unique concepts, media manipulation, and attention to craftsmanship. It was difficult to narrow it down to a limited selection.

We wanted to include as many works as possible and as I made my selections, visual connections and relationships in mood and theme clearly emerged. “The past eighteen months have been a time of uncertainty and isolation. Personally, nature has been a healthy escape, so I included pieces—both figurative and abstract—that represent that much needed connection to the beauty around us.

With artists at the heart of our work, we are honored to have this opportunity to recognize excellence in creative and original expression. The exhibition will open to the public on Dec. 18, 2021, and will be available to view during the museum's operating hours (Thursday-Saturday, 11-5 and Sunday, 11-4). There will be an artist reception on Feb. 12, 2022, and the exhibition will be available to view until May 1, 2022.
