Chemers Gallery is seeking submissions from Orange County artists that depict the best that Orange County has to offer in all styles, subject matter and in all mediums! We are celebrating the diversity of the practices and creations of artists based in Orange County, California. Submit your best work – we are showcasing the cream of the crop! Almost anything goes - abstract, botanical, contemporary craft, figurative, floral, landscape, still life and more. Open to all media including, but not limited to, acrylic, ceramic, drawing, fiber/textile, glass, jewelry, mixed media, metal, oil, pastel, photography, printmaking, watercolor and wood. This show is no longer about depicting the arts of Orange County.

This will be our 11th exhibit in conjunction with Tustin Area Council for Fine Arts (TACFA).

We are honored to announce that Jonathan Burke, President of Laguna College of Art and Design, and Hope Railey, Chair of Fine Arts at Laguna College of Art and Design, will be this year’s jurors.

All 2D work must be properly & securely wired and ready to hang. Backs of framed artwork must be neatly papered. If framing pastels without matting, you must use frame spacers to separate the glass from the art. If pastels are framed with a mat, please use a spacer between your mat and your art.

Mats: neutral white, acid free (like Bainbridge 8655), colored filets ok, and either double 4-ply or single 6 or 8-ply mats.

ABOUT TACFA:
Founded in 1992, the Tustin Area Council for Fine Arts (TACFA) funds and administers programs which expand the arts in the greater Tustin, California area, and enrich the entire community. The Council raises funds through individual and corporate contributions and fundraising events. These funds subsidize elementary students’ participation in The Art Master’s program, support students’ creativity and interest in the arts, and allow TACFA to produce an annual, affordable and live production of a classic Broadway musical at a local outdoor venue.

While practicing sound fiscal management and keeping operating costs low, the Council is continually expanding existing programs, seeking new revenue streams, and investigating new programs that will create community through the arts.

I agree to any and all conditions and responsibilities specified in the application and prospectus. I give my permission to use my name and images for publicity purposes. I agree that all works are original.
