Coastside Land Trust – Call for Artists

Since 1997, Coastside Land Trust has actively worked to preserve, protect and enhance the CLT California Poppy 8.4.16natural, scenic, recreational, cultural, historical, and agricultural resources of Half Moon Bay and the San Mateo County coast. Their gallery was launched in 2011 to convey the beauty of these resources through art
.
For their upcoming show, “Celebrating the Coast,” they are looking for pieces that reveal the ordinary and astounding beauty of our coastal environment from the shoreline to the barnyard.  In keeping with their mission, they are particularly interested in works that focus on coastal land and/or those who inhabit its various environments. Artwork in all media will be considered.

They invite you and other artists you might know to submit. The submission period will be from August 15 to 22 and the show will run from September 23 to October 7, 2016.
