Guitar-Themed Art Exhibit

Exhibition Background:
La Guitarra California Festival 2013 is proud to announce its inaugural, juried art exhibition focusing on “guitar-themed” art. Two- and three-dimensional works are eligible for exhibition in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center’s Cohan Center.  It is our hope that pieces will be available for purchase at the end of the Festival.

Qualifications: This exhibition is open to artists of all levels and experience; if space becomes limited due to a heavy volume of pieces, preference will be given to artists who are based in San Luis Obispo County. All work is submitted at the artists’ own risk – La Guitarra California Festival 2013 is not responsible for loss or damage.

Display: Photographs, drawings, and other 2D art should be mounted on a sturdy backing, framed and matted as applicable. All work should have adequate hardware to be hung on metal grid panels or artists must provide their own pedestals/easels for free-standing pieces.

Insurance: La Guitarra California Festival 2013 will not offer insurance. There will be security provided in the Cohan Center lobby throughout the Festival.
