The selection of the artists, always a competitive process, will be announced by the jury on March 11th, 2015.
“Many of the artists are from the Los Angeles area while some travel from Mexico, Canada and even Europe to participate,” commented Karen McLean, Art Show Coordinator. “The beauty of the artSHOW is that we consider almost any art from anywhere. There’s a diverse mix of artists and genres in a casual, open air environment. Artists interact with visitors and are able to tell people about the stories and ideas behind each creation.”
A special feature of the spring show will be Still Life artwork, a small but always strong category at the event. Artists working in this genre are encouraged to apply, and will be featured before and during the event. As always, artists working in all genres and many media are welcome to submit their work!
