This exhibition will showcase the dreamy California lifestyle as we encourage you to explore enigmatic beauty of our Golden State.

Artwork could represent anything from the peaceful vistas, to the meditative California coastlines, to the whimsical architecture that’s iconic throughout the Golden State.

The Californian dream is derived from the diversity of its land and its people. With many reasons why people choose to come to this part of the world, we encourage you to reflect on what inspires you as a Californian Artist and depict your very own California dream.
