Call to Artists - Pence Gallery Emerging Artist Award 2022

Share this




Monday, 27 December 2021 to Friday, 1 April 2022

The Pence Gallery announces that its Emerging Artist Award 2022 is now open for application via www.callforentry.org. This award supports the creation of new work by emerging artists in California and the opportunity to share that work through an exhibit and artist talk. Artists must use the award to further their work in a significant direction, and they may work in any medium, except for video or sound art. 


‘Emerging’ is defined as an artist who is early in their art career, who has some experience exhibiting in group shows, but not an extensive solo exhibit history. The qualifications for this award are that the artist’s submitted work is of high caliber, original, and completed within the past five years. Artists must be dedicated to the practice of making and exhibiting art, and need financial support. The award is limited to artists currently residing in California, and will be determined by a panel of experts and donors. 


This award is under-written by donors James R. and Suzette M. Smith, and offers an award of $3000 and a solo exhibit at the Pence in January-February 2023. 


Applications must include a resume, an artist statement, 10-15 digital images of current work, via www.callforentry.org by 9 PM PST on April 1, 2022. The application fee is $30 ($25 for Pence members). 


For more information, email penceartdirector@sbcglobal.net. The winner will be announced by April 26, 2022.
