At the Rita: Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for Arts and Humanities

Art = Heart

We asked K12 students in our region to think about how being creative and making art brings them joy, comfort, peace, happiness—all things for a positive mindset. Then they translated those thoughts into amazing original artwork.

About Parkside Galleries

We are educationally-driven with thematically-focused, interdisciplinary exhibitions. Although we do not have the staff to actively review all exhibition submissions, we invite artists to introduce themselves by sending an email with a link to a website address. We are always on the lookout for new and interesting work, especially if it intersects with our educational mission.
