"Body and Presence" Juried Exhibition

The City of Santa Clarita (City) is inviting artists to submit artwork for consideration for our upcoming “Body and Presence” juried exhibition, which will be on view at the Canyon Country Community Center during our annual Business for Artists Conference. We are calling for original artwork in any medium that investigates the essence of physicality and existence in the modern world. We are seeking artworks that explore the relationship between the body and its environment, emphasizing the significance of presence and absence. This exhibition aims to delve into themes of identity, corporeality, and the sensory experience, prompting viewers to reflect on their own presence and the impact of their physical form in the space they inhabit.
