Scapes


Opening Reception: Friday, 12th May, 6-8pm
Art Work Submission Dates: Friday 5th or Saturday 6th May

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
— Marcel Proust

There’s a reason galleries around the world are filled with so many landscapes, seascapes and fantastical dreamscapes: at some point in our daily lives, we all crave an escape. For some that’s gazing out onto a golden hayfield beneath a huge mid-western sky, for others a view of a tumultuous ocean, or a languid wild-flower carpeted meadow, or maybe a view into another dimension, to a world other than our own.

In Scapes artists are invited to transform the gallery into a myriad of views - an exploration of the world we live in and worlds beyond, from the prosaic humdrum scapes of daily life, to inspirational views and escapist fantasies.

Information for submitting artists

Scapes is a juried show open to CAL members and non-members. Artists are invited to submit up to two works for the juror’s consideration. Artwork in all mediums is welcome. Artwork should be submitted on Friday 5th or Saturday 6th May, 11am-5pm both days. The work will be juried on Sunday 7th May and any work not selected should be picked up the following Monday or Tuesday. Please note that all artwork must be for sale, be no larger than 48" in any one direction, have been completed in the last two years and have neither been in nor juried out of a previous CAL show. All paintings must be completely dry and all work must be WIRED – we cannot hang work that does not have a wire - and labeled on the back with the artist's name. The jury fee (per person, not per work) is $15 for CAL members and $25 for non-members.
