Call for Entries: Explore This! 10

We are excited to be accepting entries for Explore This! 10, our annual online exhibition.  This show provides a wonderful opportunity to submit mixed-media artwork with colored pencil pigment as the primary medium. Once judging is complete, accepted entries will be displayed on the CPSA website for an entire year.  Please click here for the prospectus and more details about Explore This! 10:

Colored Pencil and Monoprint on Bristol

ET! is open to both CPSA members and non-members. If you have already renewed your CPSA membership for 2014, you are eligible for the lower member entry fee of $15 for Explore This! However, your membership dues must be received prior to October 31, 2013 for you to receive the discounted entry fee. The non-member entry fee is $20.  

This year’s juror is Amy Galpin, Ph.D. She is the Associate Curator of Art of the Americas Department of Curatorial Affairs at the San Diego Museum of Art. Her exhibitions for the San Diego Museum of Art include: Women, War and Industry; Rubén Ortiz-Torres: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man; Hugo Crosthwaite: Brutal Beauty; and Behold, America! Art of the United States from Three San Diego Museums.

Explore This! is an excellent way to present your artwork to a broad-based audience without incurring shipping costs. It also is a great forum to explore new media and materials. Copper leaf, colored grout, monotype and collage are some of the lesser known media and approaches used in past ET! exhibitions. Three-dimensional artwork is also accepted in ET!

CPSA founder, Vera Curnow, believes that it is important as artists for our voices to be heard through our artwork. Please consider entering Explore This! and giving your work a voice this year.
