Sanchez Art Center (CA), Call for California Artists: 9th Annual Sanchez Art Center 50-50 Show
Deadline: May 16th, 2017, 11:00pm PST
The Project: Sanchez Art Center (SAC) seeks California artists (18 and older) for its 9th annual 50|50 Show. Accepted artists will create 50 small works (6” x 6”) over the course of 50 days. Each artist chooses a theme and a single medium for all 50 pieces. Creation of works by participating artists will begin June 12th and end July 31st, 2017.
Eligibility: California artists age 18 and over.
What you can expect: Benefits of participating include an intense creative experience; being part of a great exhibition of over 3,000 works and an estimated audience of 1,000 or more viewers; fellowship with other artists; and a spectacular opportunity to make works available for sale to people who might not be able to afford your larger pieces.
Juror: Jack Fischer of Jack Fischer Gallery, San Francisco.
Materials: Sanchez Art Center will furnish each artist with 50 unprimed non-archival medium-density fiberboard (MDF) panels, 6” x 6” with nail holes pre-drilled, and will provide hanging supplies (nails, adhesive putty) and installation templates. With SAC approval, other 6” x 6” panels may be used at the artist’s expense (small canvases, etc.) as long as the presentation is professional in appearance and there is a rigid support for the work (i.e., no paper or fabric may be placed directly on the wall). Artists providing their own panels or shelves must still pay the $75 participation fee. Variations must be approved by Sanchez Art Center in advance.
Media: All fine art visual media will be accepted. Artists may prime and paint on panels, or attach canvas, drawings, or watercolor paper. 3D sculptures may be attached to wall-mounted panels, or stand on SAC-approved shelves provided and installed by artist. All works must fit in allocated space of 6” x 6” x 6”. If your work requires a different approach, contact us for approval as soon as possible.
Entry Fee: A non-refundable $25 fee is required at the time of entry. An additional $75 participation fee is due upon acceptance to cover the costs of materials and other exhibition expenses such as publicity and marketing. Accepted artists will be required to come to Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica in order to pick up their 50 panels.
