Call for Emerging Artists: The Council on Culture and Arts (COCA) solicits submissions for the 30 Under 30 Juried Exhibition
COCA’s turning 30! One of the ways we are celebrating this milestone is by highlighting our local, emerging artists with a special exhibition opportunity – the 30 Under 30 Juried Exhibition.

During the past 30 years, The Council on Culture & Arts (COCA) has been proud to exhibit the work of more than 6,000 talented painters, illustrators, sculptors, photographers, and fine craftsmen. Each one has left their mark on our community making it a unique and vibrant place to live and visit. Earlier this year, COCA produced a special exhibition to recognize 30 of our most accomplished and well established local artists.

Now, COCA is bringing attention to the next generation of emerging artists who will set the bar for the 30 years to come. COCA invites all local artists, aged 18-29 to participate in this specially designed juried exhibition opportunity. The 30 Under 30 Juried Exhibition will be on view at the City Hall Art Gallery from September 30-November 16, 2015 and it will include a variety of artworks by 30 local artists under the age of 30.

30%20Under%2030To encourage and nurture emerging talent, COCA will present $500 in cash awards to those selected for the honor. The artwork submission deadline is July 31, 2015.
