We are inviting local & semi-local artists who work in virtually any media to enter their depictions of the ARTS in Orange County. Past entries ranged from artist studios, ballet and folk dancers and musicians to artists at work, museum viewers and buildings, but that doesn’t mean those are the only acceptable subjects. The possibilities are endless – the more creative and innovative the better! (You just might win one of the cash prizes!)

Amateur artists are welcome to enter. All artwork will be judged equally regardless of professional status.

Entries will all be pre-juried online at OnlineJuriedShows.com.

Viewing Art & Arts Buildings

Patrons of the arts from the young to the young at heart. Don’t forget the arts buildings themselves, even the ones transitioning from abandoned warehouse to upscale art gallery. (Psst – Chemers Gallery counts as an arts building within Orange County, too. Just sayin’!)

Culinary Arts or Art in Situ

What about the art of FOOD?! Talented chefs and sous chefs are artists of their own right, so why not show them a little love, too? Or feature a favorite painting hanging in someone’s home?
