Crocker-Kingsley Art Competition

Winners of the 2015 Crocker-Kingsley Art Competition—the prestigious, biennial 87-year-old juried exhibition, featuring 75 works and six prize-winners selected from 1300 California entries— will have their work displayed at Blue Line Arts for the second time in a row. Featuring limited edition prints from Gregory Kondos in the WestPark Workshop Gallery.   

“Each exhibit features such strong work," said acclaimed artist Gregory Kondos, who curated this year's collection, Kondos also selected six cash-prize winners whose work will be featured at the Crocker Art Museum in March 2015.  Those prize winners will be announced at the exhibition’s exclusive preview on January 8, 2015 at Blue Line Arts.

The Crocker-Kingsley exhibition became juried in 1940, a tradition that continues to the present day.  The exhibition, originally held at the Crocker Art Museum, moved to Blue Line Arts in 2012 as an expansion of the exhibition that extends for six weeks.

”We're delighted to help grow the competition and share a partnership with the Kingsley Art Club and the Crocker Art Museum to feature such an impressive exhibit," said Julie Hirota, chief executive officer of Blue Line Arts. This year the number of participants increased 175% and entries poured in as the deadline approached, creating strong competition.  The works represent a diversity of media ranging from painting and sculpture to photography—and a variety of artist styles that include representational and abstract work.

Past exhibitors have included many of the premier names in American and Californian art and have led many to futher their career in art.  Past exhibitors of note include Robert Arneson, Kathryn Uhl Ball, Elmer Bischoff, Fred Dalkey, David Gilhooly, Ralph Goings, Roland Petersen, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, Fritz Scholder and Wayne Thiebaud.  Juror Gregory Kondos exhibited in 13 Crocker-Kingsley exhibits from 1955-1970.


His work was also included in the Fifty Years of Crocker-Kingsley retrospective exhibit held in 1975.
