The 12th Annual 2017 California Open is a juried exhibition celebrating contemporary and modern art created by emerging artists. The competition is hosted by TAG Gallery, an artist-owned gallery now located at 5458 Wilshire Blvd, near LACMA and the Craft and Folk Arts Museum. TAG features emerging and mid-career artists of Southern California. Previously located at Bergamot Station, our new exhibition space is 5,400 sq. ft., twice the size of our previous gallery space. We are excited about our new, bigger space and will be able to accept more CA applicants and bigger work this year!
The exhibition is open to all artists 18 years and older in the disciplines of Computer Art, Drawing, Mixed Media, Painting, Printmaking, Photography, and Sculpture. Accepted work will be exhibited at TAG Gallery from the 9th – 26th of August 2017, and all work will be for sale.
