JUROR – Virginia Causton-Keene

As an art director in one of London’s largest advertising agencies, Virginia spent several years designing and making costumes for a theatre group in the south of England.

Her love of the three-dimensional form influenced her to become a freelance sculptor/designer working for many U.S. and UK companies.  This led to her emigration to the United States.

In California, Virginia studied photography and ceramics and developed her craft as a portrait photographer while fine-tuning her ceramic skills.  Her passion for ceramics brought her to the Betsy Leuke Creative Arts Center where she is now the gallery director, curating the monthly gallery exhibits and managing the pottery studio for the City of Burbank.

Artwork will be juried using digital images, (jpegs), through Online Juried Shows https://www.onlinejuriedshows.com/Default.aspx?OJSID=49272. Submitted artwork reflects the artist’s interpretation of the theme, “Sublime.” We are looking for artwork which reflects our hope that you have some fun with this theme. Be creative. Make the ordinary, extraordinary. Look at your work differently and show us your best work for this annual INTERNATIONAL OPEN exhibit. Remember CAL’s themes are only a stepping-off point to challenge you to new and interesting directions.

ELIGIBILITY

The California Art League exhibit, “Sublime”, is open to all CAL and non-CAL entrants who wish to share their best work. CAL members’ dues must be current for 2021. New members join CAL as part of the entry process. The reduced membership rate for new members is exclusively for artists who have never been a member of CAL.

 

ARTWORK SUBMISSION CRITERIA AND CONTENT

CAL is dedicated to exhibiting excellent works of fine art which promote the artist’s artistic ability, vision, and creativity. In this respect, all artwork should be original and created from conception to completion by the artist within the last three years, and not previously shown in any CAL Juried Show. Artists are permitted to use their own photos as reference materials in the creation of their artwork, but not photos from other sources. No artwork copied from other artists work, copyrighted work, published photos, or created under the direct guidance of an instructor, are eligible.  The only exception is collage work which may include small portions of other artists work,

 

ARTOWRK MEDIA, ENTRIES and FEES

Artwork submissions can be in any of the following media: drawing, painting, photographs, digital art, mixed media, collage and sculpture.

 

Entries will be made online to OJS. Artwork submissions are limited to five original artworks per artist.   Entries may be made in more than one medium.

 

Fees are:  One or two entries: $35.00 for CAL members in good standing and $55.00 for non-CAL members. The $20.00 surcharge is a one-time offer that gives the new artist membership into CAL at a discount, which is good for the rest of the year. All entrants may enter additional artwork for $5.00 per piece fee up to a total of 5 entries. Payment is made through OJS via credit card or PayPal. Fees are non-refundable. There is no guarantee of acceptance into the show. New members whose work is juried in to this show will be considered “exhibiting members”, and will be eligible to submit work as an exhibiting member for acceptance in all future CAL shows.

 

FORMAT FOR DIGITAL IMAGES (jpegs) AND HOW TO SEND THEM

All entries must be submitted in digital JPEG format. Photograph your art with a digital camera on a black background, (if cropping is not possible), without a mat or frame, and not through glass. Image quality is critical! Poor photography and presentation will affect acceptance by the juror. The digital image must represent the painting. Directions for submitting work to OJS is clearly described on the website in several topics listed on the sidebar of the main page: https://www.onlinejuriedshows.com//HowtoEnter.aspx.
