Show Dates

Calvin Liang, Juror


This show, now in its eighth year, has been supported by some of the country's finest artists and for that we are very grateful. Past jurors have included Sherrie McGraw, Huihan Liu, Scott Christensen, Brian Blood, Albert Handell, and Mark BoedgesThis year we are very excited to announce that Calvin Liang, Master Member of the Oil Painters of America and American Impressionist Society and Signature Member of the California Art Club has agreed to jury the show. With his extensive art education and experience working in the fine art world not only in America but also his home country of China, we feel he will select a wonderful show for our patrons.
We are very honored and look forward to the exhibiting his selections. He will also select the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place monetary awards; $3,000, $1,500 and $750 respectively.

Submission: Representational work completed in a fine art medium (no photography at this time ) will be considered. The jpeg image file submitted for consideration should be approximately 8 x 10, 300 dpi. There are no size limitations but please keep in mind that artists are asked to pay for shipping. Submissions are due by June 18.

Jury Fee: There is a jury fee of  $35 for the first two works, $50 for three, and $60 for four.

Shipping: All accepted artwork will need to arrive at the Center before July 21.  All artwork will be insured from the time of its arrival until it is returned or sent to the buyer at the conclusion of the show. As in previous years, we need all two-dimensional work to be shipped in AirFloat containers. Should the artist choose not to use Airfloat containers a check for $35 to cover a handling fee will need to be included with the artwork. If the artist would like to hand deliver the piece and pick it up at the conclusion of the show, that will be fine but please call in advance to ensure that staff is available to meet you. If the piece sells, we will still need an Airfloat container in which to ship your work to the buyer.  We can ask that the buyer return the Airfloat to you, COD.

Sales: The sales price of the artwork will be set by you. The Center will retain 40% of the price of two-dimensional work and 30% of the price of three-dimensional work. Please note that from the date the piece has been juried into the show and through the show's conclusion, any sale of that piece must be made through the Center, with the Center retaining commission. Artwork in this gallery must remain with the exhibition until its conclusion before it can be sent to the buyer.
