Show Your Work
We have a MVAL Gallery at the Live Oak Community Center, 10144 Bogue Street, Temple City. Stop by and have a look at the artwork our talented members have created.
This gallery is an important community outreach. MVAL Board is given a space for our monthly meetings in exchange for adding to the beauty and interest of the community center at the park.
There is space for 11 paintings. If you have interest in hanging your paintings at the Center please contact
