The following is a list of Art events for the month of August 2011. This list doesn’t even begin to be considered for the label, “exhaustive.” It is intended to be a starting point for a monthly listing of events around the world. In many cases, these events are ongoing showings, and in some cases there are more than one event at the same venue, and I have only posted one random event from the venue, to get you going.

Please feel free to send me event notifications from your area to be considered for the next list.

I have to say, in my attempt to find art shows or events around-the-world, I was very pleased to find some interesting shows that crossed global regions. I look forward to finding more gems like this in future posts!

Note: The following events are listed in order of “end date.”
