The Newport Beach City Arts Commission invites artists to participate in the 53rd Annual Newport Beach Art Exhibition to be held on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at the Newport Beach Civic Center, 100 Civic Center Drive, Newport Beach.

For over 50 years, the Newport Beach City Arts Commission has recognized the talent and contributions of local and regional artists by hosting a juried art exhibition that gives the community the opportunity to view and purchase the art on display, mingle with the artists and enjoy a festive atmosphere of music, wine and food. Last year’s Newport Beach Art Exhibition featured over 300 works of art by 150 artists. 

Artists, 18 years of age or older, may submit one or two original works of art to be displayed and judged.  Entry fees are $30 for one entry and $40 for the maximum two entries. Categories include Painting: Watercolors and Painting: Oils and Acrylics, along with Photography and 3D Art. Awards in the one-day juried exhibition range from $100 - $300. Awards will be announced at the reception at 4:30 p.m. on June 17 in the Civic Center Community Room.

The deadline for entries is May 26, 2017. Applications should be submitted online at CallforEntry.org. Eligibility and submission guidelines can be found on the City website at www.newportbeachca.gov/culturalarts under “Newport Beach Art Exhibition” or at CallforEntry.org.
