Dab Art’s juried shows have featured remarkable and notable artists from all over the globe. Our venue is The HUD Gallery + Studios, a 1930's-era building located between Malibu and Santa Barbara in the greater Los Angeles area. The vintage industrial charm of The HUD Gallery’s vaulted ceilings, suspended display walls and substantial exhibition space create a unique and highly visited gallery. Dab Art’s high-caliber reputation and progressive curating style makes our juried shows one of the most coveted contemporary exhibitions in Southern California.

Entries will be juried and selected based on technical application, originality and concept. Finalists will be invited to show their work in an eight-week exhibition at The HUD Gallery. Those selected for exhibit will be featured along with their winning photos in a book published by Dab Art titled Good Bokeh: Focusing on Fine Art Photographers. This full-color folio will be added to the permanent catalog in the LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) Balch Art Research Library. All exhibiting photographers will receive a gratis issue of Good Bokeh from Dab Art; the book will also be available for purchase at www.dabart.me.

LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States. LACMA’s Balch Art Research Library maintains an extensive research-level collection of approximately 175,000 books, journals, periodicals and art publications. This non-circulating collection consists of monographs on artists and specialized art subjects; art reference books; collection and exhibition catalogues of museums, galleries, and private collectors; scholarly periodicals in the field of art and related areas; current auction catalogues; artist files; and material in related fields of study.
