call for entries- SD County art educators’ exhibit

SD County art educators!

You are invited you to submit your artwork for exhibition in the 2013-14 San Diego County Art Educators’ Exhibition.  This exhibition is being sponsored by the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) and the San Diego County Art Education Association (SDCEA) and will be on view from November 22th to January 30th at the San Diego County Office of Education. 

This winter exhibit will showcase instructors’ skills and the impact their work has on students and the community.  Hundreds of visitors at the SDCOE as well as county office employees find joy and inspiration in viewing art exhibitions. This is a wonderful opportunity for teachers to be recognized for their talents as artists. This show is open to all educators and school employees within San Diego County.

 We are interested in displaying two-dimensional media, (paintings, pastels, graphite, mixed-media, photography, etc.). Unfortunately, due to space/safety limitations at the SDCOE, at this time, we cannot display three-dimentional artwork.

 The exhibition will end with a closing reception on Thursday, January 30th from 6 – 7 p.m. at the San Diego County Office of Education at 6401 Linda Vista Rd.,  San Diego, CA 92111. At the end of the reception the artists are asked to take their work home with them.
