LIVERMORE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, December 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — WHAT: COVID Safe Art Expo starting Thursday, December 17th, 2020. Livermore, CA–
Republic Square at Livermore offers Bay and Tri-Valley artists an opportunity to display at contactless, COVID safe art walk.
Offering some much-needed cheer this holiday season, Republic Urban Properties, the real estate development company behind Livermore’s newest retail destination, Republic Square at Livermore, is giving local artists an opportunity to showcase their work at an outdoor, COVID-safe art walk.
Beginning Thursday, December 17, thirty-eight professional artists will display their creations inside the storefront windows at the shopping center which is slated to open in 2021. All works are for sale – ideal for last-minute shoppers hunting for the perfect gift. Artists’ contact information will be displayed and interested parties can reach out directly regarding purchase and payment.
The exhibit, which is open to the public and will run through January 14, 2021, features works by local artists, some who hail from Livermore and/or specialize in showcasing the beauty of the Tri-Valley. Themes vary from landscapes to abstracts and three-dimensional fine handcrafts. Viewers will see a wide range of media including acrylic and oil fine art paintings, acrylic pour medium, glass works, ceramic pieces, sculpture and photography.
Republic Square was excited to offer this unique opportunity at the end of a difficult year. “Because of current restrictions for museums and art galleries, we wanted to create an interesting experience for the shopper to view local Tri-Valley artists in an outside setting that is both safe and fun,” said Republic Urban Properties West Coast President Michael R. Van Every. “As we open our shops and businesses at Republic Square over the coming year, we invite the public to visit, shop, eat and enjoy a cultural experience.”
Livermore Arts visual arts manager Anne Giancola is curating the show and believes it will fill an important void spurred by the pandemic. “The artists are excited to have the opportunity to bring to viewers the joy of art, which is sorely missing in these Covid-times. The transformative power of art brings a sense of well-being and happiness to our lives whether we are the creators of art, hanging the art in our homes or offices, or viewing the art in an exhibit,” she said.

Republic Square at Livermore contains five restaurant buildings, two quick service retail buildings and one retail building.
