Southern California Plein Air Painters Association
SOCALPAPA Back Bay Juried Show 2018



                                        PROSPECTUS:  SOCALPAPA BACK BAY JURIED SHOW 2018

 

Eligibility:  Only artists accepted to participate Socalpapa’s Back Bay Weekend Display Show may enter the Juried Show.

 

Entry:  September 2 to September 23, 2018.  No entry fee for up to 2 images.  $10 each for two additional images (4 total).

 

Requirements:  Original plein air paintings only.  Original means your own concept, design and work, not done in a workshop or under the instruction or supervision of another.  Plein air means completed 70 percent outdoors on location.  (30 percent studio touch-up okay.)  Paintings may be any medium, i.e., oil, acrylic, water color, pastel.  Paintings must have been completed within the last three years.  Paintings that received an award in any previous Socalpapa show will not be accepted.

 

Subject Matter:  The Newport Back Bay or one of the O.C. Parks.  No exceptions.  Do not confuse the O.C. Parks with the state or local parks.  Paintings unidentifiable as to location or too generic in nature  (i.e., solo tree; ocean wave) may be declined.  It is a good idea to include the location in the name of your image, e.g. “Summer Morning (Black Star Canyon)”.  Go to the O.C. Parks website for a list of locations under the auspices of the O.C. Parks Department. 

 

Canvas or panel size:  6 x 12 to 14 x 18 or square inch equivalent.  Paintings juried in must be framed, backed with a black or brown dust cover, and ready to hang with d-rings and wire.
