The Tustin Art League (TAL) and Chemers Gallery have joined up for the 6th year in a row to bring you the best of talent from local professional and amateur artists. But, this year, we are stepping it up! Instead of limiting the show to scenes of Tustin, we've opened it up to all of Orange County - the possibilities are endless! And, submissions are now pre-juried on-line.

So, go ahead and create your own interpretation of Irvine Park, Newport Beach, downtown Orange, even San Juan Capistrano! You don't need to be a professional artist or a member of TAL to enter - all are welcome to submit. All media are acceptable, the more creative the better. Get your paintbrushes, pens, pencils, cameras, sewing needles and printing presses ready for this exciting new show!
