More About 3rd Saturday Reception: Crocker-Kingsley
Originally starting as a collaboration between the Crocker Art Museum and Kingsley Art Club, the Crocker-Kingsley is a juried national art competition with a history spanning over eighty years. Over that time, the Crocker-Kingsley has featured some of the most premier names in California art, including Robert Arneson, Kathryn Uhl Ball, Elmer Bischoff, Fred Dalkey, David Gilhooly, Ralph Goings, Gregory Kondos, Roland Petersen, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, Fritz Scholder, Jerald Silva, and Wayne Thiebaud.
This year’s exhibition taking place at Blue Line Arts is juried by Emma Saperstein, Chief Curator and Director of Education at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art (SLOMA). From these entries, a separate group of jurors from the Crocker Art Museum will also be selecting five pieces for display at the Crocker after the exhibition is over.
