CAC Virtual Gallery

The Signs of Spring will offer cash prizes and a virtual exhibition and sale of the finest contemporary-traditional paintings and sculptures that interpret the theme utilizing classical skills.

Spring brings about the connotations of death and rebirth. The artwork submitted could feature anything from budding trees, to rainy landscapes, to blooms of California Wildflowers or a host of golden daffodils, to figures enjoying a picnic at the park or taking a bike ride, to signs of new life (human or wildlife) or anything symbolizing new beginnings and transformation.

Sculptures could explore the resurrection motif popularly associated with spring, to flora or fauna.

The guest judge for this competition is still to be determined.


Submission Deadline: Wednesday, January 24, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. PST

Finalists will be announced on or around February 12, 2024.
