Call for Art - Creative Portraits

Santa Clarita Arts

Valencia, CA

The City of Santa Clarita is seeking artwork for consideration for an upcoming exhibit at First Floor Gallery. Artwork should be unique and creative portraits of people, this can be abstract, surreal, or representational. Stray away from realistic portraits. The portraits do not have to be self-portraits, they can be of another individual. Artworks should only have one (1) individual face (no group or multiple faces will be accepted). Applicants may submit artworks in the medium of their choosing as long as it is WIRED. The City of Santa Clarita utilizes a special wiring system that requires all artworks to be brought WIRED in order to safely hang. This includes but is not limited to paintings, drawings, printmaking, photography, and textiles.

Mailed artwork will NOT be accepted. Artwork must be physically dropped off on the agreed upon date. This call is open to LA County, surrounding areas, and those willing to drop off.

Artwork exceeding 25 pounds in weight will not be accepted.
