Comunidad: A Hispanic/ Latinx Heritage Month Exhibition & Residency Opportunity

Hispanic Heritage Month, September 15 to October 15, celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of Hispanic Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America or other regions that identify with the aforementioned cultures. To celebrate the vibrant and diverse communities we serve, Blue Line Arts will host an exhibition open to Latin and Hispanic artists whose works celebrate or reference their cultural backgrounds, or engage with contemporary political and social issues through their unique cultural lens.

Off Center- An International Ceramics Competition

Since the first ceramics were created, like Venus of Dolní Věstonice, before 25,000 BCE and pottery vessels that were discovered in Jiangxi, China, which date back to 18,000 BCE, people have been fascinated with clay. Today, artists continue to astound us as they push the boundaries of our preconceived ideas of what ceramics represent. From playful pieces disguised as everyday objects, to finely detailed vessels, ceramics delights and surprises us in its evolution. Whether you work in a more traditional style, or prefer completely outlandish creations, we want to showcase your vision and techniques from around the world during this annual show.

Important Dates:

In the past, this competition has solely featured California artists. However, starting in 2021, the exhibition will be open to submissions from all artists nationally.
