Crystal Cove Conservancy
“Art in the Park”
Spring Art Show 2018

Exhibition Details

Crystal Cove’s “Art in the Park” weekend was a smash success in 2017, with thousands attending.


March 30th: Friday night’s rollicking opening reception has live music, food, and beverages to get people in the mood to buy.


March 31st: On Saturday, the cove fills with art and nature lovers and their families, here to participate in workshops, view musical performances, and meet the artists during the optional paint-out (a great opportunity to promote your work during the event!).


April 1st: The show continues through Sunday, and certain artists may be offered space to display their work in the park store’s permanent gallery.


Proceeds from the show are split 50/50, with half going to the artist and the other half benefiting Crystal Cove Conservancy.



All traditional media (oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, etc.) will be accepted, with the subject matter being Crystal Cove State Park: the historic district, coast, or backcountry areas. The show is open to any artist who is able to drop off and pick up their work in person- unfortunately we do not accept shipments from outside the area. All paintings must be priced for sale, framed and ready to hang. Please keep artwork to a maximum size of 16x20.


Entry Fees/Forms

There is a flat fee of $20 for up to 3 images. Artists selected for the show will be asked to fill out forms related to payment and insurance information.
