We always love seeing new work and discovering the local talents and we love to share our finds with you! Come out and support your community of artists and art lovers, and if you dabble or make your living in the arts, feel free to submit a creation of your own. You don't need to be a member of TAL or a professional artist to enter, this exhibition is open to all. So come on! Get your paintbrushes, cameras, printing presses and glass kilns ready to create your own rendition of Tustin's landscapes, architecture and neighborhoods.
