THEME - ILLUMINATED

The dictionary gives us several meaning for il·lu·mi·nated 

(1) to supply or brighten with light

(2) to make luminous or shining

(3) to make illustrious or resplendent
(4) to decorate (something, such as a manuscript) with gold or silver or brilliant colors or with often elaborate designs or miniature pictures

 

But I think this is my favorite: Finding Meaning and Self-Expression Through Light and Shadows. This is a very inclusive and thought-provoking theme which should allow you flexibility to show us your most creative work!  

 

ENTRY LIMITED TO HAND DELIVERED ARTWORK TO SASSE MUSEUM OF ART

We will accept (approximately) 85-100 pieces into the exhibit.  For this exhibit, CAL has decided to limit accepted artwork to pieces the artist can hand-deliver on the take-in day and pick up at the end of the exhibit.  No mail or delivery service packages will be accepted for this show.

 

 

JUROR – GENE SASSE 

With over 50 years immersed in the realm of creativity, Sasse emerges as a notable figure. As a seasoned professional photographer, book producer, adjunct professor, and museum founder, he offers a distinctive perspective on the world of art and creativity. His extensive experience serves as a lens through which to explore the multifaceted dimensions of artistic expression and innovation.

 

ELIGIBILITY

California Art League exhibitions are open to all current members plus new members may join as part of the entry process. This reduced membership rate for new members is exclusively for artists who have never been a member of CAL. Artwork will be curated using digital images, (jpegs), through OnlineJuriedShows. Log in and click Enter This Show to begin.

 

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 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, the Internet, AI Generated, or created under the direct guidance of an instructor are eligible.  The only exception is collage work which may include small portions of other artist’s work.  

 

ARTWORK MEDIA, ENTRIES and FEES

Artwork submissions can be in any of the following media: drawing, painting, photographs, digital art, mixed media, collage, and sculpture.  No performance art or AI is accepted. All artwork must be ready to hang.

 

Entries will be made via jpeg images 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 with 2024 dues fully paid, and $55.00 for non-CAL members. The $20.00 surcharge for non-members is a one-time offer that gives the new artist membership into CAL at a discount. 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 into 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 JPEG format and cropped to remove extraneous background and frame.  If cropping is not possible, photograph on a black background, without a mat or frame, and not through glass. Image quality is critical! Poor photography and presentation will affect acceptance by the curators. The digital image must represent the painting or artwork. If you wish to emphasize a particular detail of one part of an entry, enter it as a 3D piece.  Then you can submit 2 photos of the piece...one overall and another showing off that detail. Directions for submitting work to OJS is clearly described on their website in several topics listed on the sidebar of the main page: https://www.onlinejuriedshows.com//HowtoEnter.aspx.

 

Image files must be under 4 mb and sRGB color profile. For best results, image files should be at least 1920 pixels on the longest side @ 72 dpi.

 

For help with your submissions, contact onlinejuriedshows@gmail.com or 888-666-1351
