The Crocker-Kingsley Exhibition was first juried in 1940, a tradition that continues to the present day. Over the past 80 years, this prestigious show has included many premier names in American and California art, including Robert Arneson, Elmer Bischoff, Fred Dalkey, David Gilhooly, Ralph Goings, Gregory Kondos, Roland Petersen, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, and Wayne Thiebaud. 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. Works selected by this year’s juror will be on display in all 4 galleries at Blue Line Arts. Cash awards will be presented for the following: 

1st place: $2,000

2nd place: $1,500

3rd place: $1,000

4th place: $750

5th place: $250 

Crocker Art Museum staff will select five pieces from the show (which may or may not be award winners), for public display at the museum following the exhibit at Blue Line Arts.
