The Stockton Art League’s juried art competition returns to The Haggin Museum this summer with more than 100 new works by long-standing local artists and newcomers from around the country.
The original competition was conceived in 1951 to recognize, promote and reward excellence in Northern California art and was expanded in 2006 to include all of California, in addition to Arizona, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. It has grown since then to include artists from throughout the United States.
Opening the exhibition beyond California has “enhanced the quality of the work that we’ve been able to show,” according to exhibition organizer Teresa Hickey, “because we have a broader competing audience of artists.”
More than 700 works from 265 artists were submitted for this year’s show, and more than $5,000 will be awarded across five categories:
The works on display in the museum’s temporary exhibition galleries will be for sale through the Stockton Art League and a brochure with pricing information will be available in the galleries and at the front desk.
