California Art Club
109th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition: Signature Artist, Artist, Out-of-State Artist, and Mentor Program Members

Signature Artist, Artist, Out of State Artist, and Mentor Program Members - Call for Entries


Description of Exhibition


We are pleased to announce that the 109th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition will be held at the Hilbert Museum of California Art at Chapman University. The exhibition dates are May 16 – June 13, 2020.


Since its 1909 inauguration, the California Art Club has been dedicated to promoting and supporting contemporary-traditional fine art through championing painting and sculpture featuring representational practices. The annual Gold Medal Exhibition is the most vital platform for demonstrating the best of the realist genre. With an awareness of both the California Art Club's mission and the high quality expectations of this exhibition, CAC artists are encouraged to submit artwork that best exemplifies their talents. This year the exhibition will be more exclusive.  Due to the smaller scale of the venue, we ask that artists remain conscious of the size limitations for their artwork. Please consider submitting modestly sized works. To note, the Hilbert Museum of California Art at Chapman University is currently in the process of expansion with plans to triple their space.
