Only in Cali


Calling all artists for a group show investigating the multitudes of roles California has played in the artists' practice, and exploring its influences and what sets it apart from the rest of the World.

The submission is open to all artists, local and international with a strong connection to California. 

Submit work that is influenced by California, and/or focuses on your relationship with California past or present.   What does it represent? How does it differ from the "norm"? Is your work influenced by its nature? beaches? technology? car culture?  And ithis time of uncertainty, does your art practice question how California is stepping up and what sets it apart? or how it is lagging? 

All Mediums are welcome.  If you are submitting a proposal/concept for a piece or series, please state the complete details of your proposal, and include any sketches, blueprints, in the description page.  Art should be ready to be delivered and hanged one week before the exhibit.

Combine Youth, Art & Nature





Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area

Artist in Residence (AiR) Program Announcement


Project Purpose:

The Artist in Residence (AiR) program at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, a unit of the National Park Service (NPS) is intended to connect non-traditional and under-engaged visitors – youth in particular – to the natural and cultural resources of the area. This program offers an alternative avenue for audiences from city centers as well as gateway communities, who might not otherwise be aware of or engaged with nature near to home or the recreation area, to connect with the park’s natural and cultural resources through art.


What We’re Looking For and Timeframe:

Three teaching artists from diverse disciplines among the visual, literary, and performing arts will be selected as an AiR recipient for a 2-4 month period (depending on the number of hours per week with the youth) between January and June 2017. The artists must have their own or make their own connection with a youth-serving organization in which the participants will come from.


We’re looking for artists to integrate a minimum of three full-day (5+hours) trips and/or one possible overnight campout into their curriculum. The youth and artists will use these trips to work on their art form or inspire their work at the studio. 


We ask that artists be working towards a culmination event/show throughout the two-three month residency. All artists are required to be an integral part of an event showcasing the work of all artists and their students on a Saturday or Sunday in May in the Santa Monica Mountains. Transportation will be provided to your group for this event. In addition, artists may have a show closer to home to showcase the work of their students at any point between January and June 2017.



* Each AiR will receive a $4500 stipend to fund their specific needs to complete the artist project. Funding can go towards personal compensation, material support, food and other costs associated with the production of the final project.

* Each AiR will be provided with large school buses for their trips to nature, including, but not limited to, Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. 

* The artist and their students will all be signed up as volunteers and all time spent on their project will be counted as volunteer hours.


Selection Criteria:

* Youth – experience with youth, number of youth served and the ability to recruit traditionally underserved or underrepresented youth in nature.

* Artistic Merit – the artistic merit of the applicant based upon artwork submitted and proposal concept.

* Nature – Number of visits to nature/integration into nature.

* Project – likelihood of success - logistics, realistic budget, lesson plans that keep to a timeframe that move youth towards success.

* Park Appropriate – appropriate for all audiences, public appeal and impact to nature.


How to Apply:

To make sure you have all the knowledge necessary to make a strong application and make sure this program is a good fit for you, please visit the Artist in Residence (AiR) website of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. You will find the link to the application on the “how to apply” page.


The application deadline is 4:00 p.m. on Friday, November 11th and award announcements will be made on Friday, December 2nd. If selected you must be able to provide a social security number or employer tax ID number.


Please contact Tori Kuykendall at  and Gavin Todd at with additional questions.

Baroque Bitch is launching its first ever published magazine featuring emerging artists from the US and UK! The magazine will be published both as an E-magazine and as a physical one that will be mailed to prominent art organizations, galleries, critics, and curators in the Los Angeles, New York City, and London area.

We are looking for the most unique and underrepresented voices in the art scene today. There is no theme for submission. Special consideration given to recent MFA graduates. We accept submissions in all art forms including: painting, printmaking, sculptural, new media, performative, digital, prose, poetry, and critical art essays. Please note at this time we cannot accept video submissions. If you work in new media you can still apply with slides and a summary of your work.

Selected artists will receive a free copy of the magazine and all artists will be considered for future exhibition opportunities Baroque Bitch is organizing with downtown LA spaces.

About the Selection Process: This came out of a need to sustain a creative life after graduate school. MFA's are pumping out more professional artists than any other time in history and yet the art world as we know it is declining. Galleries are dying and making a living off your passion is harder than ever. Baroque Bitch's mission is to provide unique opportunities that promote a sustainable lifestyle for emerging and unknown artists. A big concept at Baroque Bitch focuses around flipping power dynamics. Instead of waiting for big names and big organizations to recognize our generation's talent and vision, we have decided to run with the ball ourselves and create our own opportunities for getting our work seen. This is a real "For us, by Us" concept. We aren't going to wait for permission granters to allow us into the room, we are just going to take the platform and see what happens.

In keeping with that quest, each Guest Curator is an emerging artist and critic, right down in the trenches with us

I'm very excited to announce that this inaugural edition's Guest Critic is Emerging artist, critic, and curator Megan St. Clair.

Megan is a recent MFA graduate and has art criticism articles published on ArtBlitzLa. Megan has a keen eye for visually entrancing work. She has the perfect blend of a painter's sensibilities and a conceptual artist's critical investigation of provocative and unique thinking. My favorite part of Megan's critical eye is her ability to dissect real compelling artwork from fashionable bullshit.

Curator's Bio:

Through the reverse engineering of her memory and experience, Megan attempts to understand relationships, love, time, vulnerability, and closeness in her personal art practice. Megan is a recent graduate with her masters in fine art from Claremont Graduate University and is profoundly interested and knowledgeable in art history and contemporary art in Los Angeles. Her current thesis work can be found at

We hope in the future to provide a free submission process.)
