South Bay Focus 2.0


DECEMBER 1 – 14, 2018

The deadline is August 31, 2018.



For this year, 2018, TAM will select 4 artists to present their work for South Bay Focus. Each artist will be allocated one quarter of the Main Gallery to set up a solo show, with multiple works, so that viewers can experience their work in more depth.

Following engaging meetings with various stakeholders TAM has taken on board many of their suggestions and we will be updating the SBF exhibition with a brand new approach.


Entry is open to artists (and collectives) living and/or working across the South Bay, Long Beach, Carson, Gardena, Wilmington, and San Pedro (including all members of Torrance Artists Guild, South Bay Watercolor Society, or Torrance Art Museum Advocates).
