Submit your work

Our goals are to “Build Community through Art” and support our Bay Area artists. We have new group exhibitions roughly every two months.

Most of our exhibitions are blind juried and we use Art Call for our “Call for Entries.” Please check back in early April for our next Call for Entries or contact us at [email protected] to be put on our artist email list.

The library receives a commission for any pieces sold to defray expenses associated with the exhibitions and to help support our library.

Artists’ Interpretations: Buildings & Structures

Architecture, buildings and man-made structures have inspired artists and their artwork for millennia. We are excited to invite Bay Area artists to submit works inspired by what is – not built by nature – but devised by mankind. This call is for depictions of all types of buildings and structures: dilapidated fences, bridges, roller coasters, monuments, iconic buildings or other construction that captivated you enough to create and capture them. Please submit artworks, including photography, that emphasize your interpretation: they may tell a story, reflect an attachment to a place or be a commentary on cultural and social values or concerns. Your cityscape, engineering feat or portal could incorporate interior or exterior views, emphasize materials, negative space or scale, and/or bring dramatic focus on light and perspective.

We invite artists to submit their interpretations of buildings and structures that shape our world. Submissions will be evaluated on engagement with the theme, technique, overall mastery, creativity, and originality.

Submissions: March 30 - April 27, 2024

Exhibition Dates: June 20 - Sept 12, 2024
