She has been an artist in residence at Fine Art Base (California), The Dirt Palace (Rhode Island), Big Red & Shiny (Massachusetts) and Arteles Creative Center (Finland). J.R.

Tina Linville creates artwork that side steps easy categorization, blurring distinctions between abstraction and representation, objecthood and installation, form and surface. What is ordinary becomes mysterious and out of explainable parts comes an unexplainable whole.

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery is located on the campus of Biola University in La Mirada, CA.

When visiting the Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery, please enter campus at the main Biola University entrance on Biola Avenue.

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery presents a program of rotating contemporary art exhibitions on the campus of Biola University. Located in the greater Los Angeles area, the Green Art Gallery is well positioned to represent a vital Christian worldview within the critical dialogue of contemporary visual art and to produce engaging exhibitions that grapple with issues concerning the intersection of faith with art and culture. The Green Art Gallery also provides professional development opportunities for Biola art students through gallery exhibitions and internships.

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery was renovated and dedicated in September 2013. The gallery is named in memory of Earl and Virginia Green—the parents of Roberta Ahmanson—whose lives exemplified faith and commitment to their family, church, and community, and who inspired their daughter’s love of the arts as a person of faith. Biola University expresses profound appreciation to Howard and Roberta Ahmanson for their continued generosity in supporting arts programming at Biola.
