About Fine Arts Roundtable

Fine Arts Roundtable (FAR), the California State University School of Art graduate organization has been fostering a vibrant artistic community in the heart of southern California for nearly two decades.  Our organization is a community of student volunteers funded by CSULB, Associated Students Inc. 

For the past 19 years, our organization has hosted a variety of annual events, such as the Greater Los Angeles Master of Fine Arts exhibition (GLAMFA), University Open Studios, and guest lecture panels. These events serve as a launchpad for upcoming artists, offering them a unique opportunity to connect with others at a similar place in their careers. 

GLAMFA is a two-week-long event hosted at the beginning of each academic year, in the first week of the Spring Semester. In the past, this exhibition has served as a pivotal platform for showcasing outstanding work and trends within the yearly graduate cohort from art institutions across Southern California. An empowering launchpad for upcoming artists, GLAMFA offers a unique opportunity to connect with others at a similar place in their careers. The aim is to enforce a network of artists to help, encourage, and compete with one another in order to strengthen and support the community in the future. 

This year’s GLAMFA exhibition application is currently open, and the deadline for submission is November 11, 2024.
