Open Call for Coming Together: An Exhibition of Small Works

LBCG Call for Small Works

The Long Beach Creative Group presents an open call for small works. The theme is open ended; we are interested in the current trends in Long Beach.

Eligibility: artists who reside in Long Beach, Signal Hill, Lakewood, and San Pedro. Artists who grew up in these communities but no longer reside here are also eligible.

Original works of art in all media are welcome: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, textiles, digital art, wall-mount sculpture, and mixed media.

Maximum size in any direction: 16 inches, including the frame.

Submissions: Each artist may submit a maximum of 3 small works. To submit, send the images to the contact email below. Images should be in a JPEG format that is no larger than 5MB, with a minimum of 1200 pixels on the longest side.

The submissions will be reviewed by two jurors, who select the work that will be shown. Artists will be notified of their decisions.

Jurors: Asia Morris and Brian Trimble.
