The Eye of the Next Generation - Call to Artist

January 12 - February 12, 2022
Atrium Gallery

We would like to invite all youth photographers to join us for the upcoming exhibition The Eye of the Next Generation at Studios on the Park. In this exhibition, artists are encouraged to showcase their skills in the following categories: landscape, floral, animal, portrait, city/urban, and still life. Final photographs will be printed and framed by Studios on the Park. At the end of the exhibition, each student will receive his or her framed work to take home.

Studios on the Park is a nonprofit gallery and open studios art center in a prestigious location in downtown Paso Robles, California. We have featured world-class artists in our exhibitions for over 10 years. Paso Robles is recognized nationwide as a premier wine and culinary destination and we, through exhibitions like this one, contribute shows of curated, high quality artwork to this exciting cultural scene. We expect over 7,000 visitors to our 2000 sq. ft. atrium gallery space for this exhibition.

Art sales from these exhibitions also serve as fundraisers for our essential arts services to more than 100,000 students, families and visitors each year.

Please email us by February 11, 2022, with high resolution images of your work(s). Final show selections will be based on submissions received and available space.

Studios collects a 40% commission on all sales. The youth artist would receive 60%. Proceeds from art sales bolster Studios’ arts services that help to make the Central Coast region a leader in creative culture, education and innovation. Among the many essential program and outreach efforts made possible is Kids Art Smart. We believe all children should have access to creative learning opportunities through the arts. With arts education cut from local schools, Studios on the Park provides free visual arts programming for thousands of K-12 grade students.
