It's time for the second annual Tustin Art League juried exhibition at Chemers Gallery! This is a great opportunity for local artists to show and sell their art, as well as make connections within the Tustin arts community. You don't have to be a memeber of the Tustin Art League to submit your artwork. The Tustin Art League is a Tustin Area Council for Fine Arts (TACFA) program that has been meeting regularly since early 2000. TAL has actively participated in many Tustin events, such as Tiller Days, Tustin Street Fair, TAL month at the Tustin Senior Center Gallery, the Art Walks and the annual Promenade Home and Garden Tour. In addition they have held "paint outs" in Orange County.

Exhibition Rules:

Entry must be an outdoor scene, with a tree, or part of a tree, from the Tustin area, created during the year since the last contest, April 2008, *framed and ready to hang (see Framing Specifications below). Artists must fill out an entry form, available at Chemers Gallery, online at, or call 714-544-7715. Artists must state category (amateur or professional) when entering.

Framing Specifications:
Please bring your frame to Chemers Gallery for approval prior to submission of artwork. Oils, acrylics and mixed media can be unframed if the gallery wrapped edges are painted. (See examples of gallery wraped canvases below.) All other two-dimensional work must be framed and ready to hang. Simple frames are preferred. Acceptable colors are black, gold and any dark wood. (See samples below.) Mats must be an acid free neutral white (for example Bainbridge 8655). Colored filets are okay, as well as double 4 ply or single 6 or 8 ply mats. No non-glare glass. Chemers Gallery will be happy to assist in the framing of your work. Space and weight limits apply to three-dimensional work, please contact Karen Raab at Chemers Gallery.
