CAL’s 2022 Spring LIVE, Gallery Exhibit



January 6 thru January 31, 2022.  This will be CAL’s first live gallery exhibit in almost two years, since the pandemic caused us to cancel gallery exhibits. The exhibit will be at the Betsy Leuke Center for Creative Arts in Burbank.   Once the exhibit opens, it will also be on CAL’s website, and will remain there until CAL’s next exhibit opens.


JUROR – Brooke Harker

Brooke Harker is a contemporary artist based in Los Angeles, California. 

Harker calls herself a historian of the ordinary. Her paintings are a collaboration with all of the people who’ve contributed to a place over time: architects, engineers, and pedestrians whose colorful fashion landed in view at the perfect moment. All of their individual actions brought together one moment, fated to be captured on canvas.  

Harker’s paintings live in collections all over the world, including with the Prince of Morocco in the Royal Palace in Rabat and as part of The Chase Center Art Collection in San Francisco, home to the Golden State Warriors. Her artworks are part of the cultural heritage collection of The U.S. Embassy Tokyo, Japan in collaboration with the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Art in Embassies after debuting at The National Art Center in Tokyo in 2019. Her art also resides in numerous private collections of Hollywood creatives.  

From 2015-2019 her solo exhibit toured Italy and appeared in numerous group exhibits and Bienales curated by Alfio Borghese in Italy and California since they first met at the Oceanside Museum of Art for the opening of California Dreaming: An International Portrait of Southern California. Borghese first featured Harker’s art in Italian press, in 2014 when he hosted the exhibit at Palazzo della Provincia di Frosinone, Italy that went on to tour to the Oceanside Museum of Art and the Riverside Museum of Art in California from through 2015.  Since then she has worked with Borghese on numerous exhibitions in various locations in Italy to the coordination of Italian artists to exhibit in the U.S. and American artists to exhibit in Italy.

It is her passion when traveling to meet artists, visit studios and connect people in the arts community to one another, a love particularly fueled by her time with Prince Borghese. It is her belief that the more artists shine their art into the world, the better world we create as everyone can use the possibility of creativity in their lives.




The Betsy Leuke Center is a medium-size gallery and we will only accept (approximately) 85 pieces into the exhibit.  For this exhibit, CAL has decided to limit accepted artwork to pieces the artist can hand-deliver on the take-in day and pick up at the end of the exhibit.  No mail or delivery service packages will be accepted for this show.



Acceptance of artwork into the exhibit and selection of awards for “California Dreams” will be made by Brooke Harker. She will be selecting awards based exclusively upon online images. 



Awards will be as follows:

BEST OF SHOW:  $500.00

First Place:                $300.00

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Midnight, December 8, 2021 Pacific time

Artwork will be juried using digital images, (jpegs), through Online Juried shows. 

Submitted artwork reflects the artist’s interpretation of the theme, “California Dreams.” We are looking for artwork which reflects our hope that you have some fun with this theme. Be creative.  Make the ordinary, extraordinary. Look at your work differently and show us your best work for this open exhibit. Remember CAL’s themes are only a stepping-off point to challenge you to new and interesting directions.


ELIGIBILITY   The California Art League exhibit, “California Dreams”, is open to all CAL and non-CAL entrants who wish to share their best work. CAL members’ dues must be current for 2022. New members join CAL as part of the entry process. The reduced initial membership rate for new members is exclusively for artists who have never been a member of CAL.



CAL is dedicated to exhibiting excellent works of fine art which promote the artist’s artistic ability, vision, and creativity. In this respect, all artwork should be original and created from conception to completion by the artist within the last three years, and not previously shown in any CAL show. Artists are permitted to use their own photos as reference materials in the creation of their artwork, but not photos from other sources. No artwork copied from other artists work, copyrighted work, published photos, the Internet, or created under the direct guidance of an instructor are eligible.  The only exception is collage work which may include small portions of other artist’s work.  All images will also be reviewed by the Betsy Leuke gallery staff for appropriateness. 



Artwork submissions can be in any of the following media: drawing, painting, photographs, digital art, mixed media, collage and sculpture.  Hanging artwork (paintings, photos, etc.) shall not be more than 24” wide, including the frame. Weight of any hanging piece may not exceed 30 pounds. Installations with a footprint of not over 4 ft. x 4 ft. and 8 ft. high are accepted.  No performance art is accepted.


Entries will be made via jpeg images online to OJS. Artwork submissions are limited to five original artworks per artist.   Entries may be made in more than one medium.


Fees are:  One or two entries: $35.00 for CAL members with 2022 dues fully paid, and $55.00 for non-CAL members. The $20.00 surcharge for non-members is a one-time offer that gives the new artist membership into CAL at a discount, which is good for the rest of the year. All entrants may enter additional artwork for $5.00 per piece fee up to a total of 5 entries. Payment is made through OJS via credit card or PayPal. Fees are non-refundable. There is no guarantee of acceptance into the show. New members whose work is juried in to this show will be considered “exhibiting members”, and will be eligible to submit work as an exhibiting member for acceptance in all future CAL shows.



Accepted artists may, in addition to the pieces selected to hang in the exhibit, bring unframed 2D works for sale as bin art.  Artists must supply their own bin.  



All entries must be submitted in digital JPEG format. Photograph your art with a digital camera on a black background, (if cropping is not possible), without a mat or frame, and not through glass. Image quality is critical! Poor photography and presentation will affect acceptance by the juror. The digital image must represent the painting. Directions for submitting work to OJS is clearly described on the website in several topics listed on the sidebar of the main page:

If all else fails email or call Ken Ronney at 818 996-1630 or


NOTIFICATION    All artists submitting work will be notified of acceptance or non-acceptance by email by December 17, 2021.



This will be a live gallery exhibit.  The take in will be on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 from 12:00 to 2:00.  Accepted artwork must be hand delivered to the Betsy Leuke Creative Arts Center, 1100 W Clark Ave, Burbank, CA 91506.  Hanging will take place immediately after the take in.

Any artwork entered in this show may be reproduced for advertising and promotional purposes by both CAL and the Betsy Leuke Center without additional consent or notification to the artist. 



By entering the exhibit through OJS, the Artist acknowledges that CAL and the Betsy Leuke Center will take all reasonable care to safeguard their artwork, and artist accepts that CAL, its agents, associates, directors, officers, volunteers and the Betsy Leuke center will not be responsible for any damage, injury, liability, loss or theft, should any occur. Insurance for art entered in this show is each individual Artist’s responsibility. By entering, Artist agrees to all terms described in this contract.



There will be no commission to CAL on any sales.   The gallery handles all sales and takes 25% of the sale price and also collects a 10.25% sales tax on every sale.  All shipping arrangements will be made by the artist.  If shipping is required, the method of shipping and insurance will be by mutual agreement between the artist and buyer. The artist will handle all shipping details.   If a piece is sold, the artist must notify the Betsy Leuke Center so a red dot signifying “sold” can be placed on the artwork’s wall label.  The artist shall also notify CAL so “SOLD” can be placed by the on-line image’s identified price.



In order to generate sales, we are hoping that all of our artists will share the “California Dreams” exhibit with all their contacts; spread the word, far and wide!
