37th Annual Made in California Juried Exhibition

About Made in California

This annual juried exhibit showcases artwork from all over the state of California. MICA strives to highlight artists in all stages of their careers and offers them a chance to compete for a number of awards, including the coveted solo show opportunity. This regional show features artwork from an extensive variety of mediums and explores creative movements happening in California.

The Solo Show opportunity offered during MICA is a chance for artists to have their own solo exhibition in the Gallery that would run concurrent to the greater Made in California Juried Exhibition, and would include a separate title wall, show card, and a $350 cash prize. To enter, an artist must submit a cohesive body of work of between 5 and 10 pieces, along with an artist statement for the jurors, for a flat rate of $80. Meaning an artist can submit up to 10 pieces for just $80, rather than for $20 each for individual juried entries (a $200 value). Additionally, if an artist’s body of work is not selected for the solo show, each piece will then be considered individually by the jurors for the greater juried exhibition and would be eligible for all of the other awards (First, Second, etc.), so the work will be considered twice for the flat rate of $80.

Eligibility

Open to all living artists ages 18 and up, residing in California. All entries must be original, completed in the past three years, and not previously shown at the Brea Gallery. All mediums are welcome.

To qualify for consideration for the Solo Show, artists must submit a cohesive body of work containing between 5 and 10 pieces. Works not selected for the Solo Show will be individually considered for the Juried Show.

There is no limit to the number of entries that an artist may submit. Entry fees are for consideration by the jurors, payment does not guarantee admission into the exhibit.

Solo Show: $80 per submission
