2008 Los Angeles Juried Exhibition

A couple of weeks ago, I was at Dick Blick Art Supplies, buying materials for the matted prints I sell on my website, and on the counter was a flyer for the 2008 Los Angeles Juried Exhibition. It’s a contest where local artists can submit work, to be reviewed by a jury panel. The winners will be displayed in the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery in Hollywood for a month. Best in show gets $1,000, runner up gets $500, and third place gets like $250 or something in that range. The contest is every 2 years, and is open to painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and so on.

Well, ok, why not? So I grabbed the flyer to read a little bit more. Turns out the cost of entry wasn’t too-too bad, so I decided to give it a shot. I took 4 photos, set them up in the correct specs according to the flyer, filled out the entry form, wrote the check, and dropped everything in the mail.

Next steps, the jury will review everyone’s entries and they will make a decision – I believe the date is June 23. So stay tuned. The flyer didn’t say how many total pieces will be chosen for the display. And I’m not sure how big the gallery is, or how much space they are devoting to the winners. But on the outside chance one of my pieces gets in, I’ll definitely let everyone know!

very exciting - you can't ever guess what the judges might be looking for, but it looks like you entered a nice mix. The one of the car with the amazing sky gets me every time I see it. Best of luck!
