CALL FOR ART: Entries due by May 9, 5:00 p.m. for Visions Reimagined: Little to Big

Brought to life by noted “plein air” artists Chella, Rick Ingraham and Janet Hardie, this show will be an open call to artists for pairs of works — one  “study” or sketch, along with a bigger companion studio piece based on the study. Plein air paintings are primarily landscapes, but also include sea and cityscapes, and tree or plant studies that have been produced in the open air, reminiscent of the late 19th century French impressionists. Other subject matter in all media are welcome. The paired works will show the contrast between quickly produced studies, and more carefully rendered pieces produced in the studio. There will be cash prizes awarded, sponsored by Valley Suncatchers plein air painting group.

When you come to the gallery, please be aware of the following precautions and be respectful of our docents, patrons and artists:

  • Masks are to be worn by docents and visitors when they enter. Bring your own or there will be paper masks available at the gallery.
  • Masks and social distancing (6 ft. apart if not in the same family unit) are required. 
  • A plexiglass shield is installed at the docent desk for your protection.
  • Wipes, hand sanitizer and sprays will be provided for docents.

If you still can’t come down to the gallery, we understand! Shop here on the website, or keep in touch on our Facebook page, or on Instagram!

In addition, please find a list of FREE art education resources here. We’ll be adding to this list, curated by CLASS teaching artists, as we find relevant and interesting things to share.

Visit our continuing online Meet the Artist show. We’ll be expanding this page to highlight more of our member artists throughout the year, so come back often.
