City of Santa Clarita Opportunities

The City of Santa Clarita Arts and Events division (City) is seeking artists to exhibit work at the First Floor Gallery located in City Hall. Artists chosen will participate in a group show “ABC Canvas.” Artists who are selected to move forward will be provided with a 24″ x 24″ canvas to work on. On this canvas you will create a work that depicts anything that starts with the letter assigned. For example, if given the letter “A” you can create an Airplane, Apple, Anchor, etc. We have scheduled for your canvas pick up to provide you with one month to work on this piece before installation. You must use the canvas provided. Art work must be dry and wired before installation or it will not be shown. Artists will submit two – three images of past work that expresses their individual style. Artists will provide three letters from the alphabet that you’d like the opportunity to work with. We will do our best to give you your first choice, but it will be based off first-come first-served. We ask that final works be appropriate, images containing any inappropriate language and content will not be accepted.
