Light: Artists of MarinMOCA Member Show

July 8 - August 13
Reception: July 8

Light: Artists of MarinMOCA Member Show. Two exhibitions per year are dedicated to featuring the work of the Artists of MarinMOCA. The Artist Members are part of a vital and creative community of artists who both support and sustain the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art. This exhibit theme is Light, which the artists are free to interpret, visually and/or through the use of materials and media.

From Caravaggio to de Kooning, light and shadow breathe life and energy into a composition. Light directs our eye and shapes our emotional response. Mastery of light is a lifelong process. MarinMOCA member artists will share where they are on this journey.

Open to all Artist Members of MarinMOCA who have paid in full for 2017 membership and who are current with volunteer time (2 hours/month). You are invited to submit up to 3 original works not previously shown in a MarinMOCA or Artists of MarinMOCA exhibition, online digital submissions only. All media are acceptable except video and film. This show is juried for non-monetary awards only.

Submission deadline May 30, 2017.

2017 Emerging Artists of Northern California

Juror: Chandra Cerrito Contemporary Gallery

September 2 - October 8
Reception: September 2

Open to all northern California resident artists 18 years and over. You are invited to submit 10 digital images of original works completed in the past three years, not previously shown in a MarinMOCA Juried Exhibition. The goal of this competition is to choose five "emerging artists" who will be given an opportunity to exhibit either a body of work or a site-specific installation within a portion of the Museum gallery. The juror will select three installation artists, one 2D artist and one 3D artist.

For the purposes of this exhibition the definition of emerging artist is: an artist who is the principal creator of new work, who shows significant potential yet is under-recognized, and who has some evidence of professional achievement but not a substantial record of accomplishments. Artist’s age is not a consideration. We welcome the opportunity to support works that embody diverse cultural perspectives. A "northern California artist" is defined as an artist working and living in the following area: From the San Jose area north to the California border and east to the California border.

Only online entries with digitally uploaded images will be accepted. Entries must be RECEIVED via online application on or before midnight PDT FRIDAY, June 30, 2017.
