The Kingsley Art Club, in cooperation with the Crocker Art Museum and Blue Line Gallery, announces the 78th biennial juried exhibition to be held in January and February, 2017. Notices and application forms will be available soon. Juror Squeak Carnwath will select the works and award the cash prizes for “Best of Show,” first, second, third prize, and honorable mention.
Works representing a diversity of media – painting, sculpture, and photography – in a range of artistic styles from representational to abstract to conceptual are invited. California’s established artists as well as those just emerging on the scene may submit up to three entries.
In 2012, the Kingsley and the Museum began a partnership with Blue Line Gallery, which hosted the show at their venue in Roseville. This was the 76th Crocker-Kingsley exhibition. First held in 1927, the exhibition became juried in 1940, a tradition that continues to the present day. Past exhibitors have included many of the premier names in American and Californian art, including Robert Arneson, Kathryn Uhl Ball, Elmer Bischoff, Fred Dalkey, David Gilhooly, Ralph Goings, Gregory Kondos, Roland Petersen, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, Fritz Scholder and Wayne Thiebaud.
