Southern Exposure seeks submissions of artwork by Northern California artists for our Entry Fee-Free Juried Exhibition!
Proof, the theme for the 2011 Juried Exhibition, is intended to inspire and encourage a broad level of creative response. Southern Exposure invites visual artists to submit work that responds to this theme in some way, shape or form. The theme and media are left open to the artists' interpretation in hopes that the work is conceptually and aesthetically diverse, drawing from as many insights and forms of creativity as possible.
A 20-YEAR HISTORY OF SOEX'S JURIED PROGRAM, 1991-2011
Proof marks the 20th Anniversary of SoEx's Juried Program series. Since 1991, SoEx has presented the work of more than 1,200 artists through 18 juried exhibitions, six juried screenings, two juried public art days, and 15 related events, talks and performances. Twenty years later, SoEx shares the history of this seminal series in the form of a timeline installation featuring the names of all the artists who participated over the years. We invite the many artists who have been a part of this program to join us.
Unlike many open calls for work that charge a submission fee, Southern Exposure's juried exhibition does not require artists to pay to enter their work. The exhibition is open to any artist living in Northern California north of King City and south of the Oregon border.
Visual artists working in all media are encouraged to apply. Applicants should be aware of Southern Exposure's mission and our commitment to supporting a broad range of innovative, risk-taking contemporary visual art practices.
