The Coronado Cultural Arts Commission (CAC) is calling local artists to submit artwork with a floral theme for inclusion in an exhibition and sale of art in the 2019 Coronado Flower Show to be held the weekend of April 13-14. Back for the fifth year, the Commission will once again mount an exhibition, Florals by Locals, to highlight the work of local artists at the annual community flower show. This year artists may offer their work for sale.

To participate, artists must be 18 years or older and qualify as one of the following: a resident of Coronado; an employee, teacher or property owner in Coronado; or an operator of a gallery in Coronado. All artwork must be original and the work of the registered applicant. Work must be a floral or have a floral theme and the size of work is not to exceed 24” x 36” including the frame.

We are seeking artists to volunteer and perform art demonstrations in the Florals by Locals tents during the Flower Show; you may bring paints and an easel and paint on site during a scheduled time. To sign up to demonstrate or volunteer, contact Mary Hale, Florals by Locals Volunteer Coordinator at 619-347-1347 or halemary650@gmail.com or Kelly Purvis, Arts Administrator at kpurvis@coronado.ca.us or 619-522-2633. Artists may submit two pieces of artwork to display based on space available. Applications accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

To register visit the Florals by Locals Call to Artists on the CoronadoARTS.com website. The application is available Feb. 19 on the Opportunity drop-down menu.

Application deadline is 5 p.m. on April 1, 2019. The fee is waived if artist volunteers two hours to work the exhibit during event. The fee to enter is $30 (non-refundable) to exhibit work only.

We encourage artists to submit early as exhibition space and volunteer opportunities are limited. Entries will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

For additional information, please contact: Kelly Purvis, Arts Administrator at kpurvis@coronado.ca.us, 619-522-2633.
