June 2019: Fig Tree Gallery - New work in wood.
November 2019: Clay Hand Studios - Retrospective in Clay.
Marvin Armstrong is a member of Clay Hand Studios and has ceramic work on display and in progress in the studio.
Since 1962, Fig Tree Gallery has promoted contemporary art and shared its endless permutations with fellow artists and patrons. The oldest continually existing artist cooperative in the United States, we moved three times before locating to our present address in 2005. Situated in the Cultural Arts District of downtown Fresno, we are neighbors to 3 galleries: Clay Hand Studios, Silva/Salazar, Cypress & Oak, Corridor 2122 and the Robert Ogata Studio. Artes America and the African American Museum are just blocks away. Many of our member artists have established studios in the area. With the revitalization of downtown Fresno and the advent of Arthop, Fig Tree Gallery plays a pivotal role in the cultural growth our city currently enjoys.

Open to artists residing in California, artwork must have been completed within the past two years and may not have been shown previously at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.
The Annual Horizon Awards are given to recognize individuals, organization and businesses that have made significant contributions toward the enrichment of life in the Fresno community through excellence in the arts. Since 1984 The Arts Council selects winners from an extensive list of nominees, those artists and patrons of the arts who by their works and deeds have gone above and beyond the norm in their commitment to the arts are selected.
