The California Islands Symposium Art Exhibition wanted to be sure to invite GNSI and ASBA members to submit to the following:
The deadline for submission to The California Islands Symposium Art Exhibition has been extended to July 19, 2106!
The California Islands Symposium Art Exhibition will be held October 3 – 7, 2016 in Ventura, California during the Symposium and then moved to the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden in Santa Barbara, California, where it will be on display for one month, from October 9 – November 6, 2016.
Artists are invited to enter original artwork in any two-dimensional medium that reflects the beauty and uniqueness of the California Islands. One source of the flora found on the islands is: https://www.nps.gov/chis/learn/nature/plants.htm. Submissions are not limited to the plant life, but can include marine life, shells, birds and fauna. The only qualifier for content is that the subject matter must be connected to the California Channel Islands. Many of the plants and animals that grow, live or visit the Channel Islands also are on the mainland.
Entries are accepted through http://www.onlinejuriedshows.com and the deadline is July 19th. The symposium website can be found at: http://www.californiaislands.net/island-art-exhibition/. There will be prize money for the top three artists.
“We believe that including the arts in the international island symposium is a critical component in cultivating a greater appreciation of the unique California islands. The juried Art Exhibition is a special event associated with the scientific symposium.”
