Monday, March 20, 2017

(Sacramento) -- Senator Jeff Stone (R-Riverside County) is calling on artists to participate in the State Senate’s 10th Biennial California Contemporary Art Collection.

In 1998 the California State Senate initiated a program to celebrate California art. Every other year, Senators are asked to select an artist who they feel best represents their district. A catalogue accompanies each show.

Senator Stone will select one artist from the 28th Senate District for inclusion in the show. Final selections will be displayed in the Maddy Lounge and the Cox Clubhouse in the State Capitol.

“We have so many talented artists in the 28th District,” said Senator Stone. “I am looking forward to proudly displaying one of their creations in Sacramento.”

Most any type of ORIGINAL art is acceptable. Oil paintings, works on paper, weavings, wall hangings and sculpture are all acceptable media. Please try to limit the overall size to 3’x 5’ feet as space is limited. No posters, prints or giclees – only original pieces.

The purpose of the exhibit is to showcase the talents of our state’s artist.

The artist must agree to loan their art to the exhibit for about 18 months. The artist must also provide biographical information for the catalogue.

Artists are asked to submit an application and a picture of their artwork to the Senator’s District Office by April 17th.
