The Art of Painting Conference and Exhibition is near, on March 8 – 9, 2019! This two-day conference was conceived to give a vast expanse of artists an opportunity to foster conversation about contemporary painting. This stands as the unifying principle of our conference and exhibition. Furthermore, the diverse wealth of artwork will provide fresh insights into a classic, yet ever-evolving medium.
Many prestigious artists and critics have participated in past conferences, including Philip Pearlstein, Enrique Chagoya, Deborah Oropollo, Guy Diehl and Peter Selz have participated in past conferences. This year’s renowned presenters include Amer Kobaslija, Dean Fisher, Dorian Allworthy, Glenn Brill & Tom Colcord.
All college students are welcome to send up to 3 images to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject titled, “21st Century Entry”. All college students that were enrolled in school in 2018 can apply, from any California colleges or universities. The artwork needs to be delivered or shipped to the gallery by March 1st. If accepted, you and a guest can attend the two-day conference at no cost. Please confirm via email that you will attend. There will be a Purchase Award for Best in Show and a second and third award.
