LA GUITARRA 2017
FINE ARTS EXHIBITION
CALL FOR ARTISTS:
This September 22, 23 and 24, La Guitarra California Festival 2017 will be held at San Luis Obispo’s beautiful Performing Arts Center on the Cal Poly campus. We welcome our attendees to a magnificent three-day festival filled with virtuosic guitar performances, Masterclasses, and vendor and guitar maker exhibits in the Vendor Fair.
La Guitarra California Festival 2017 is proud to present its third biennial, juried art exhibition focusing on “guitar-themed”
art. Two- and three-dimensional works are eligible for exhibition in the lobby of the Christopher Cohan Center.
It is our hope that pieces will be available for purchase at the end of the Festival.
