Application due: Friday, October 14, 2011, 5 pm
Call For Entries (CFE) is an annual juried exhibition that encourages artists from the local community to produce newly commissioned work. CFE is open to visual artists of all mediums currently living and working in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo Counties. Applicants may not be closely affiliated with CAF or have participated in a past CFE exhibition. Three to six artists will be selected by a panel of jurors made up of artists and art professionals to exhibit new work in a group exhibition held at CAF in 2012. The panel of distinguished jurors includes: Grace Kook-Anderson, Curator at Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach, CA; John Spiak, Director/Chief Curator of the California State University, Fullerton, Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, CA; Shane Tolbert, Past CFE Artist, Houston, TX; and Geoff Tuck, Independent Art Writer, Los Angeles, CA. Selected artists will work with a curator through series of studio visits to propose and create new work.
All submissions are individually evaluated based on the artistic and creative strength of the recent (last five years) work. Fee is $20 for CAF members, $35 for non-members, and is waived for new members upon joining. Completed application and fee must be submitted online by Friday, October 14, 2011 at 5 pm. Online application opens September 1, 2011. To find out your membership status, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
